Free yourself from stress

How does stress arise?

Stress is individual and is caused by both one's own thoughts and beliefs, which in turn directly affect the emotions experienced. Most thoughts, beliefs and feelings are unconscious and strain what we perceive with the senses. The reactions of the senses further activate the body to a state of stress. The body's response often goes unnoticed until, for example, the body's response is not noticed. the pain becomes large enough. Physical effects are still linked to thoughts and beliefs (eg. "I'm tired, I need a little treats after a hard day"). There can be several such stress circles active at the same time, and the easiest way to dismantle them is one at a time.


Conscious consideration of one's own thoughts and feelings requires a willingness and commitment to learn from situations in which you feel stress or notice some symptom suggestive of stress in yourself.

Typical signs of stress include the following:

  • Insomnia
  • Tightness
  • Numbness of thoughts
  • Ineffectiveness
  • Increased errors
  • Irritability
  • Anger
  • Premature obsolescence
  • Stress also has a positive side

    The right amount of stress makes us act and cope with challenging situations, just when we have to. Initially, however, the good intentions of stress may remain repeated in one's own life as a partially or completely unconscious pattern. In this case, the feeling of stress strikes in everyday life even from a very small trigger (e.g. a certain thought) without the actual original stress situation even occurring anymore. The whole body, on the other hand, reacts to the feeling of stress, down to the sympathetic nervous system, and if the same pattern is repeated many times, mental stress is also transferred to the body at some point into different symptoms.

    Stress is said to be the cause of up to 95% of diseases (Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief, in English the book is called The Biology of Thought). If the physical symptoms were caused by stress and the appearance of the symptoms causes even more stress for oneself, then the negative treadmill is ready. Which should you deal with first, the symptoms or the cause of your own stress?


    The root causes of stress by unpacking can release a large amount of energy and gain new resources for yourself. A negative emotion (for example, fear of something) takes a lot of attention and energy, even when we try by all means to push the negative emotion out of our minds and live without taking it into account. Because of this, the very first step is to be aware that you have some negative feeling or situation that is stressful. There may be several reasons for a particular stress topic at the same time, and it is worth writing them all down on a piece of paper.

    Thinking about things separately from each other, you may get new perspectives right away, and then the proportions of things will also change. For example, work stress is often treated only as a single entity, although it consists of a wide variety of things and emotions. Deconstructing stress into parts brings information about the different emotions behind stress. When emotions enter your consciousness, the overall stress level may already begin to decrease, as you will find that you are able to understand your own situation. Write down all your stress-related feelings on a piece of paper and choose the emotion that comes to your mind first to look at.

    The next step is to more accurately identify the emotion associated with stress. Stop and listen consciously to both your own mind and your body. Name the emotion in your own words (e.g., feeling rushed in your stomach) and you've gotten a clue about both the feeling and where in your body the energy of that emotion is affected.

    The third step is to act to balance the energy of the feeling associated with stress. In what ways do you deal with your emotions and do the habits you have at your disposal work? An easy and effective tool for balancing the energy of emotions is, for example, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). And are you able to work on the energy of the emotion yourself or do you need help from another person? Is there a belief associated with the emotion that prevents the release of the energy of the emotion? If the stress is related to a big fear or deep belief, it may be easier to work on it with the help of a coach or other similar professional.

    In short, in stressful life situations, use the 3 T model, From Knowledge – Recognize – Action (disassemble and release the energy of emotion).

    Getting rid of stress increases energy

    Each of us feels and reacts to stress in his own way. Identifying your own stress reactions helps you identify stress as quickly as possible. A permanent state of stress indicates that something is not resolved, i.e. the issue/emotion has not yet been identified, processed or handled superficially and the important root causes behind the stress have not yet been resolved.

    Short-term stress can also be so intense that you may want to lower your own stress level as soon as the first stress reactions occur.

    On the whole, life is a constant fluctuation of stress and recovery – like a constant rollercoaster ride. Each of us experiences stressful situations from time to time. By dealing with the energy of stress-related emotions, we can achieve a better balance even at the most challenging stages of life.

    The energy that you do not waste on stress will return to your use and you will be able to consciously decide where to direct it. By knowing yourself and your own stress responses, you will also be able to quickly identify whether right now is the time to expend resources (stress phase) and or the time to gather strength again (recovery phase).
