5. Reframe your situation. Our reactions originate in the way we interpret our environment. There is nothing that creates stress; it is the way we see it. When you see a person, situation or event as threatening, the body will see it as stress. When you get stressed out by something, you see these things mentally, by the eye of the mind. You can make that picture first black and white. Let all colors go, than shrink it; it becomes smaller until it disappears. Every time you feel stress, or you see something threatening, try to do this and create a situation with colors you like and where you deal with the situation perfectly instead.
