150 150 Dr Rozina Lakhani

Have you been feeling more anxious, worrieds, and stressed than usual? If so, you are not alone.

A recent study found that nearly 8 in 10 adults (78%) say the coronavirus pandemic is a significant source of stress in their life. And, 2 in 3 adults (67%) say they have experienced increased stress over the course of the pandemic.

If you’re one of those people who are feeling hopeless, lonely, isolated, fearful, anxious, and stressed at the moment, I have good news for you: What you are feeling is temporary. You can bounce back and experience joy again!

And what better time to do that than now?

In my article titled “Bouncing Back; From Stress To Joy – Learning Resilience Through Changing Times” which was featured in the AIS publication Spring 2021 issue, I shared an effective formula that has helped a lot of my patients go from stress to joy.

Stress To Joy Formula: CPR

C- Calm

P- Process

R- Respond

CALM: The first step in dealing with any stressful situation is to calm down your mind and body. Calming your mind will allow you to process what is going on and respond wisely and mindfully.

PROCESS: Once your mind calms, it can process or think through the situation. When you train your mind to choose to change your hurtful thoughts to helpful ones deliberately, you feel less stress.

RESPOND: The third and last step is to respond with wisdom. This is the action part of your mental decision. Once you have the right mindset, you can respond with positive action.

Do you think this formula can help you? Try it whenever you face a stressful situation and let me know how it works for you.
