Have you ever heard of a “Catastrophe scale”?……… This is a lesson passed on to me from a much loved family member…..no not Granny…not even my Mum….actually this one was taught to me by my daughter many years ago. They learn’t about it at primary school……gee they teach some great stuff these days. The children had to think of problems and put them on a scale. 1 being minor…..for example…Loosing $1.00 and 10 being something catastrophic for example a Tsunami. When a problem or something stressful happened they were taught to think about where it would sit on the catastrophe scale………I think this puts things into perspective, sort of slaps you in the face and says “Wake up”…”Life is okay”. Most problems seem minor if you compare them to a disaster. Be real about your worries……are you creating them? Are you exaggerating them? Are you assuming what other people think? If you just met someone that had just lived through a Tsunami, would your problems seem relevant or worthy. Be real, calm down, breath and look at ways to resolve or move on from your stress/issue.
How do you de- stress? Let us know? Remember a problem shared is a problem halved!!!!!!!!
