Overcoming stress or overwhelm in your business can be one of the hardest emotional and physical challenges you face. Here in the second part of a two part series on overcoming stress, let’s look at how to create at various types of stress-buster connection habits which you can use daily.

What Is A Connection Habit?

The habit of connection is about reconnecting to your soul. You could saying it’s about connecting to The universe, God, Source – however you want to label it – but basically it’s about reconnecting to your inner self. The most obvious example of a connection habit is meditation – which has been scientifically proven to reduce stress.

So the reason for a connection habit is because everything you ever need comes from within you – you are the ultimate source of your own wisdom, guidance and peace. And when you tap into this inner you reduce your stress and overwhelm.

And when you reduce stress and overwhelm . . . well, that’s when the magic starts to happen.  That’s when you can start to create your ultimate lifestyle business.

Examples of Connection Habits

  • Meditation
  • Stream of consciousness writing
  • Submersion in  nature – walks in the countryside, swimming in the sea, mountain hikes
  • Exercise such as yoga, pilates, tai chi

It’s important to choose a habit which fits you and then stick with it.  This is not a once-off tool.  It’s a lifetime tool for overcoming stress.   For example, I write my ‘morning pages’ every morning.  Morning pages suits my temperament.  When I don’t write them I feel cranky and off, I get stressed a lot more easily and overwhelmed in a heartbeat.  But if I take the time to write my pages, it’s like I purge myself of the bad stuff and start the day calm and ready to face whatever it throws at me!

So choose one and stick with it!

What Can You Expect From Your Connection Practice?
Here’s the thing – basically, you can expect absolutely anything!

You’ll never understand exactly why  your connection habit is so critical to overcoming stress until you do it and experience it. It’s one of those things where you need to do it to understand why you need to do it.   So, if you’re serious about overcoming your stress and or creating your ideal lifestyle business just go out and try one of these connection habits  and then you’ll understand why.
