Tip 2 – Decrease Drama
Another effective way to help stop energy drain from stress and reduce anxiety is to practice not feeding “drama” in your thoughts and conversations. When we constantly spin thoughts of blame, anger and “doom and gloom” projections about the future, it increases drama, which always makes things worse. Adding drama to a situation blinds our intuitive discernment, which we need to find the most effective ways to navigate through challenges. Start by trying to decrease drama when sharing with others. When we genuinely share feelings from the heart with others, this reduces the tendency to keep amplifying and repeating the downside of situations—and increases the tendency to strengthen and encourage sober support and solutions. Naturally, there will be some drama while expressing our feelings to others. But when excessive drama continues, it blocks solutions because it drains the mind and emotions, leaving us feeling worse. Practice reducing drama, but try not to judge yourself or others for creating it. Everyone is doing the best they can until they get more stable and secure. Try to proceed with compassion through all your interactions.
