And that changes everything. In just 14 days, we'll teach you a new way to respond and, in turn, a new way to live. It's nearly impossible to avoid traffic jams, demanding bosses, willful teenagers, financial pressures, health glitches, and other challenges that make up the multistranded stress web of a modern life. But you can control the thinking that you're bringing to these encounters, which dictates your stress response. It's amazing -- hm. Well, that's something. I realize now that I can think through my problems. That's something I've discovered. Now Michael, he thinks about things too, but he just wants to convince himself. Therapist: You mean, you think to get at the truth, but he tries to fool himself? Henry: Yes. And now I know I can think things out for myself. Michael just tries to keep himself from worrying, so he says I'm jealous, but I'm not. Therapist: He thinks you're jealous, but you don't agree. Those are the reasons why people avoid your company. Your negativity is making them unhappy. Now, it is quite easy to understand why you need to value your attitude. It is because it shapes your life for the good or bad. It is the key to happiness! As we get older we may be prone to worrying more.

Or maybe we become more impatient, complaining, and short tempered. We may find that happiness is more difficult to experience. And we may start to feel that our physical and mental capabilities are slowly diminishing. You need to critically evaluate yourself because it could be your attitude making you feel and see things different. That's the key, because that's where you'll get your leverage. When you start to reframe your reactions to these encounters, you build up the most critical antidote to stress: resilience. Create a new internal operating system for yourself and suddenly it won't matter that the stressors haven't changed, because you will have changed. You will find that you can do a lot of things you never thought you could, such as focus better at work, problem-solve more efficiently and effectively, and communicate more clearly. Your fatigue and malaise will begin to dissipate, and you'll feel able and inspired to make the healthy lifestyle changes that will further reduce your stress levels. Best of all, you'll be able to direct the energy you've been spending on worry, anxiety, guilt, sadness, and frustration into activities that are truly rewarding: deepening relationships, engaging in fulfilling work, or even just enjoying your busy life instead of watching it whiz by. In 2010, we founded meQuilibrium, a personalized, interactive coaching system designed to provide people with proven, measurable methods to increase their stress resilience. Drawing on our individual areas of expertise, we married the systemic, whole-person approach of integrative medicine with the science of resilience and the tenets of positive psychology to create a methodology that attacks stress on every level. The program provided a revolutionary approach to stress, shifting the conversation from how people can eradicate it to how they can markedly improve their ability to handle it. It delivered cutting-edge skills to help them regain--and keep--control over their busy lives. Henry: Yes. He's jealous of me because Miss Palmer liked me better. He says she spoiled me. If that was so, they had years in which to make up for it after she left, but they didn't. So that angle doesn't convince me. Henry: Last time, I was telling you about Michael figuring things out just to keep himself from worrying, just to convince himself.

So, when he said I was jealous, why was I worried? It wasn't exactly worry, but a sort of a vague feeling. What does anxiety mean? Therapist: Sort of being afraid when you don't know exactly what of. If your attitude is negative towards the people and things around you, you need to take note of it and control it. There are different ways in which you can see things and people around you and the moment you are not easily carried away by your attitude, you take control meaning that you value it. Values are an integral part of who we are. They are a unique part of our personality. Often when we are not living in alignment with our core values we can feel unsettled and unhappy with inner turmoil. When we become conscious of our values we can live more intentionally in alignment with them. And feel happy, content and peaceful. In his Goal-Setting Theory, Dr Edwin Locke mentions that setting goals aligned with your values make them more achievable. Values affect our thinking and behavior. So if an important value is to be healthy then we modify our behavior to be healthier. The efficacy of this unique program has been demonstrated in nine research trials. In just 60 days, meQuilibrium users reported significant improvements in how they felt physically and emotionally, their ability to focus and manage anxiety, and their sense of satisfaction with their lives. Since that time, many leading corporations and institutions have signed on, offering the program to their employees, and the number of users continues to grow daily. But we're on a mission, and we're not stopping there. While the program is available to anyone, and we encourage you to visit www. And, we wanted to get you there faster than 60 days.

We wrote this article as a way to deliver the key skills you'll need in a supercharged 14-day program. Think of this as a whole-life reboot--a complete upgrade of your internal operating system that improves how you think, feel, and live. This article's plan was scientifically designed to tackle the core components of stress management that are proven to give you the most bang for your buck. In other words, hit these 14 skills, and you'll quickly create a network of positive changes in every area of your life. Henry: Well, then that's not what I mean. I felt sort of anxious, though, when he said it. He kept himself from worrying by convincing himself that he was right. But why should that worry me? Therapist: Why should it affect you so? Henry: Yes. I think it's because I want him to be worried. I think I do want him to worry. God knows he caused me plenty of worry in the past. Well, I never realized that. Most of us don't know our values. It's hard to sit ourselves down and dig deep enough to know what we truly value, rather than think of values we should have. To be successful in many aspects of life, you need to have patience. Patience is a virtue that is not easy to come by but is very important. It is important because with it, comes success. Here will be a story demonstrating the importance of patience in my life.

The story begins, as I was reading stories of others about how they came to be successful. Many of these come from people who came from nothing. I was interested in how something that may have not seemed big to anyone else came to be something very big to them. So I started reading them. We spent years designing our methodology, testing it repeatedly to ensure its efficacy, so that all you have to do is dedicate a few minutes each day to resetting your stress response--the rest happens automatically. You'll learn to peacefully coexist with your stress and become happier, calmer, healthier, more productive, and in control of your life--and you'll do it fast. The last thing anyone who is stressed wants is a complicated, time-consuming program that causes more stress! The skills are quick and easy to adopt, so you'll begin to feel relief almost immediately. At the same time, they target the thinking and other underlying factors that generate stress in the first place, so the results are long-term. Part 1 of the article will give you an overview of the program: what it is, how it was created, and, most important, why it works. While we know you're eager to get started on the change-your-life fast track right away, we strongly encourage you to not skip reading part 1, as it lays important groundwork for the program that follows. Part 2 is a day-by-day breakdown of the program. Each day's material should take you about 15 minutes to read and put into practice. You don't need to follow the plan for 14 consecutive days for it to work. Therapist: It's a new thing to see yourself as wanting him to worry, hm? Henry: Yes. Of course, I did feel bad when Gerald said he'd rather have Michael than me. Michael said I was jealous of their closeness. Well, the reason they're so close is first of all because they're closer in age. But the real reason is that Gerald needs to have someone boss him around and Michael is only too glad to have someone to direct, so they get on.
