  • What context you mean stress. Stress is life. Everything is stress, in association to life. What matters is your stress threshold, or resistance against stress determine your evolutionary fitness. You can’t avoid stress. I left after 3 min of listening her,although appreciate her education.

  • Wow! Within the first minute of this interview, I’ve changed my mind on “stress”. This is so so true! So many arguments can be prevented by understanding this about stress. Lewis!!!! You & Jay released some FIRE interviews this week! Thank you! Definitely listening to this again.

  • 1:09:45
    Sometime last fall I started “faking it til I made” self-confidence in order to hopefully stop or at least diminish apprehension and stress in my work which was constantly giving me problems which often seemed insurmountable and in the process either discouraged me, enraged me or both. I’ve been the type that generally couldn’t be confident in the face of a new challenge or problem, and had encountered a few people in my life who were seemingly self-confident in such situations, which didn’t make sense to me. I thought they were bluffing and that they were perhaps a little stupid to undertake something that would overwhelm them, etc. only to find out later that they were doing well.

    So, last fall I decided to give it a try and visualize(pretended) that I had had multiple prior successful experiences and hence was fully self-confident, and it sorta magically worked. It was a game changer, a turning point in my life. I’ll be fifty four in a month…was about time, lol

  • What i learned is 3 things 1) Exercise 2) Gratitude 3) Truama & Stress is life telling you…to learn, neuroplasticity….Hard lessons…most difficult… but empowering if used correctly.

  • I found this to be super helpful. I work from home, but in a high-performance tech job in which I have to rely very heavily on my communication skills and personal organization. I struggle almost daily with imposter syndrome and feelings of insufficiency. This meditation was really good about refocusing my thoughts on the skills that I do have. Thanks!

  • Simple ways to relieve stress and anxiety.��
    Exercise. Exercise is one of the most important things you can do to combat stress.
    Consider supplements
    Light a candle
    Reduce your caffeine intake
    Write it down.
    Chew gum.
    Spend time with friends and family
    Laugh.

  • Thank you this was amazing. I usually feel tired and sleepy sometimes die to stress and after going through social media I feel more fatigue later. But now I am all refreshed and calm. subscribed!!

  • Thank you so much! I recently started a new job and the first couple of days was under so much stress and anxiety i cried once i got home. I watch this each morning before going to work and my days are slowly but surely getting better and better and i now I’m getting more confident and even started enjoying the work I do.

  • This is my 2nd day back to work after 3 months off due to the pandemic. This is the 2nd day I’ve listened to this twice in a row before going to work in customer service. Thank you!

  • Thank you so much for this! I’ve been listening for a few days since starting my new job, and it has boosted my confidence and lowered anxiety so much! It’s hard to feel competent when you’re the “new guy” but I believe in myself fully

  • I LOVE the idea of this, and I wanted so badly to love this video, but after a couple minutes I just could not do that background noise anymore:/

  • This is a form of distraction. Works on many but on long term Complex PTSD it doesn’t seem to have a great deal of effect. It is interesting to see so many differing techniques out there-many helpful at times. Thanks for sharing.

  • Just tried doing a math assignment that wasn’t even that hard but I had high anxiety levels which was strange to me since I did heavier work loads before this one, thanks for the meditation helped me calmly relax and move on!

  • Listening to this on my break after 6 hours of anxiety attacks, graveyard shift at McDonald’s. I’m looking for another job asap wish me luck. This job, especially the shift, is taking a huge mental/physical/emotional toll.

  • I work in food and customer service and it’s really difficult for me. This is really great. If you could make another of these work meditations I’d be so grateful.

  • I have many serious health issues. The worst thing that could happen to me, is that I die and never get to get married, have children or grandchildren, or even have an “adult” career.

  • Great video. Thank you so much. I try to meditate every day and I’m grateful to have found your video. Meditating helps my anxiety immensely.

  • Thank you so much for making this,I have severe work anxiety. I’ve been listening to this as I have a week’s trial at a potential job this week. I hope it goes well as I’ve always wanted to do this type of work. Fingers crossed.

  • I am grateful I found your channel. I’m a teacher, and my anxiety is so high. Thank you for the meditations you have given us. If it’s possible, I hope you will do more.

  • Ive been off work for over two years with anxiety and some other medical issues. Started back in a new job last week and my anxiety levels are through the roof. I’m really struggling.. Glad to have found this just before work today. Fingers cross its just settling in anxieties ��

  • Big idea 3 is the most amazing and my favorite one. Nice video with simple explanation!
    Except for the “Watch head chopping video the first thing in the morning” everything else is spot on.

  • I hear you man but I worry about serious things like will I ever be enough or happy or whether I’ll be happy enough for my friends, family or even girlfriend like am I gonna be constantly depressed and I hear you about thinking about people who are in worse situations than me but that just makes me sad that I can’t help them and I know I can’t help everyone or save the world but that just but thats like reminding me how useless I am. I honestly worry about whether I’ll be stuck worrying forever and thats just who I might be like what if thats my personality and I can’t be helped.

    In highschool I worried about passing and making it to college which I did but now I worry about college, friends, family, jobs etc. and even if I make it out I’ll just worry about the next thing.

  • If you make a video on YouTube
    People will not hate it then go burn down your house or even leave a negative comments….
    They gave a thumb down, make some insult through joke, then forget about it 10min later
    So people. If you worry about life, remember, everything for now is only 10 minutes long, then you will find a way at 10 minutes and 01 second ( im dead serious )

  • Wow!! Just wow!! Thank you for making this amazing, powerful tool. I’ve been listening to and practicing affirmations for almost a decade now. But this is my first experience with “work” affirmations. Its really helpful. I have felt more focussed nd positive at work after listening to these affirmations just once. Nd some magical opportunities have started showing up (like never before)!! ������������

  • I’m sorry but I don’t think these’s affirmations are actually helpful, “I am able to multitask”.. not true that humans can multitask…. this feels more of a brainwash to become a working robot…I would consider a more realistic approach with humane affirmations..

  • Change the fucking words bro acknowledge that it’s fucked up to say that you are in a state of emotional stability.Some of us aren’t very stable.Please change your fucking editing.It’s scary. Making enter more violence in our lives is not the good way.Internet is “different” from the real life.You out there who sees that find another method this is so negative I hope nobody does that.

  • Thanks for this reminder! It is amazing when I really think about the worst thing that can happen! This is so powerful! When I think I through it I don’t really fear what I think could be the worst thing that could happen. Yet I still find myself worried. This has been a big battle front for me! So I am choosing to be ok with it!

  • So glad I found this. I just started a new job and have been looking for a meditation specifically for my anxiety associated with the new role. I really needed this!

  • One of the greatest books, a must read when you want to give up worrying about unwanted stuff in our life. Here is a detailed review: https://thystones.com/how-to-stop-worrying-and-start-living-dale-carnegie-book-review/

  • Great video! Earned a sub. I have anxiety and depression myself and recently started on medication for my panic attacks. I talk about mental health on my channel.

  • What about I lost my job today and struggling with paying bills and rent??? Just please don’t come up with the B+ Band washing machine example!

  • Wait…so this exercise gets rid of anxious thaught I am 66 will try Any other exercise that may work I like I wonder what my next thaught will be

  • Afternoon Scott i got a question why does social media make people have anxiety for? Could you be on social media like twice a week or maybe like 1 a month?

  • yes thank you I love this curious cat( my cat was looking at me while doing this lol) you always bring fun to your videos which I enjoy helps enlighten the mood. I like that wonder what my next thought will be? look forward to getting on track again and hopefully my dizzy lightheadness will subside. Thank you

  • There r so many problems in my family and becoz of that i m depressed, always negative thoughts running day n night in my mind. How i can relax and stay positive when problem is still there. Plz reply

  • I have lumbar lordosis (my lower spine literally caves in) so doing exercises such a these are virtually impossible for me.
    My OCD is centered around intrusive thoughts. I need to do very particular things a certain amount of times or I am absolutely convinced something horrible will happen, mainly to my children. Doing these “rituals” prevents that, and even though I realize it’s completely irrational I can’t help myself.
    If you can suggest any type of alternate exercise or coping mechanism, please feel free. It would be beyond appreciated.

  • intruisive thoughts hurt my head so bad everyday, Muscle tension just grips my whole body, they just consume me all the time. i try my best to carry out my normal day to day activities but some times i just cant take it anymore. i would really appreciate if someone can advice me something.

  • YOUR SO VERY BRIGHT. THAT WHY I AM SO SAD OF OUR FAMILY I AM HURT BUT I AM TRYING SO HARD. CAUSE I AM THE SECOND CHILD AND THAT WHY I AM SO SAD EVERYDAY ON MY LIFE��

  • Hello Bright side team, I’m writing on my behalf of Father. He tried this. It worked on the first day but second day. His fingers and palm is pain and is swelling. Please reply what to do relieve the pain and swelling.

  • It was awesome. The last example was like something I never thought of. And woww woww woww. I was a retarded all my life to feel I’m a looser:)

  • IDEA 2 is an alter remind that life is full of uncertainties(accidents). It helps me cherish the present and focus on meaningful things. Thanks!

  • Have an exam in 15 minutes! Was very anxious, tried this and let me tell you it effin works! I was skeptical at first but the longer you press each finger, the calmer you become!

  • I work in a nursing home during this pandemic as a janitor, and if I don’t do my job properly these people may get very sick in their own homes. I know they deserve the best and I am going to give them my best.

  • so im getting harassed online and i could feel my heart almost beating out of my chest, this worked but not really, it only helped me sleep and sleep made me feel better

  • Today I’m starting a new job, my general anxiety is already bad but because of this new position, damn it’s unbearable. Thank you so much for making this, I really needed it! ��

  • I don’t really feel much of a difference because a had a few slight flare ups of anger that were still there while I tried the excersize.

  • Lovely Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you heard about Eenlit Dignified Eradicator (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a great one of a kind guide for enjoying life and free yourself of any internal mind blocks without the headache. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my work buddy at last got amazing success with it.

  • As someone who recently started with a tight knit company in a field I have never previously interacted with who’s insecurity comes out 90% at work and used to be my complete worth this is beyond a treasure to me �� I have a review in 20 minutes and this allows me to walk into it with dignity, confidence & an ability to see growth in any criticism.

  • How do you help a friend who has “depression “ so she says idk if she’s been diagnosed but I told her to focus on the present and she’s not financially in a place where she can see a therapist or doctor and she has 3 tiring kids and she’s supposed to be going through a divorce or that’s what she told me

  • Super glad I found this video. I work at a restaurant that is super short-staffed and super busy on weekends. I just listened to this video for the first time this morning and it helped to relax me. Off to work I go & thank you so much for posting this! ���������� Do you have any more videos like this for work anxiety?

  • I think multitasking has proven to cause brain damage. I wish she had said “I am good at handling a variety of tasks, without falling into the trap of multitasking” or something like that.

  • Thank you so much, my life is really painful, I think about my future all the time, 24/7 my mind tells me that if my future is secured only then I will be happy

  • When I was going through my grief journey of having lost all my family members, I would watch holocaust movies. It was my own way of treating myself to not feel sorry for myself. Granted, grief is real, and it hurts on all levels, physical emotional mental and spiritual, but if you do not have a good support system, which I did not, then taking charge and empowering yourself with how you can help yourself is the most empowering thing you can do so that you can get on with life.

  • Watching someone’s head getting chopped off? That’s a bad suggestion hopefully nobody decides to search that up it won’t help solve anything

  • Yea… stress is stress, the way you handle is what is important. If you compare the stress with the ocean, it has waves, it can be choppy, or just wavy. You are the boat, if you learn how to handle you, your boat, and learn about the ups and down of the energies of stress and emotions, you can navigate like a pro during stormy times.

  • i have an ibs and whenever it happens to me i feel worried and scared and kinda sad and I’m literally feeling scared and forget how to control myself even when I’m in house and i go to restroom 3 times maybe in 10min and after20 min after what happened i feel relax and that’s sucks cuz i can’t go anywhere or with anyone cuz I’m always thinking maybe it will happens and my house faraway from mall for example and feel like nobody cares abt me and they like ur not baby and that’s so painful �� this happening to me since 7th grade 5 years ago��

  • Watching people’s heads being chopped off definitely takes a toll on your mental health, you stupid fucking wannabe!! People get PTSD and triggers from this kind of stuff but I guess you feel “crass” now with your fucked up advice! To the people here, don’t take advice from a whiny bitch boy who cries about a B+ and then goes to the internet to spread his “wisdom”. I’m sure he also touches himself watching bizarre videos.

  • This video has really good points. For one your health and happiness can never be purchased or traded. Your number one asset is too invest in yourself! When you invest in yourself everything else manifests into positives. The mind is a tricky game but play it correctly and you may win.

  • Thanks for this content! You may also enjoy the Shamanic point of view of How to stop worrying about the future: https://youtu.be/umEyuwpjEnk

  • Please don’t take this guys advice.. watching heads getting chopped off everyday is not going to help your psyche.: he also doesn’t even understand real worry. Getting a B instead of an A? Caring about your washer breaking isn’t about what to wear it’s about the money it will cost to fix it. This is a horrible video. Please don’t listen to this nonsense. Yes you shouldn’t worry but this video has horrible advice.

  • I would sell my legs for a billion dollars since nowadays I could afford myself cool prosthetics and keep functioning like a normal human being, but with a ton of $$$ in my pocket that I can use to travel and to learn stuff…

  • This is the only way to release all stress and has been scientically proven, I cut of all my fingers except my pinkies, I no longer have anxiety, anger, fear and sadness. But I do have self respect still ��

  • Watch the video of Jesus Christ. Hopefully you will understand how much Jesus loves you. You guys miss the point it’s all in the Bible. Please�� try to read the Bible by yourself and ask God to reveal his words. It’s so powerful.��
    God bless you all abundantly.

  • I love your video it was really good except for the head being chopped off part. Just knowing that does happen and not viewing it is enough. I would say something maybe like living in a grass Hut in Africa with no power and with little or no food and water.

  • I have an interview today and I’m glad I found this!! I hope I get the job Prayers would be great �� my anxiety is so bad. I hope I really get the job

  • Job interview in a few hours. I suffer from GAD, panic disorder and depersonalization. Interviews terrify me yet I tend to be fine once I get the job. Sigh. Hoping I do well and can keep my composure. Thank you for this.

  • Watching people’s head being chopped off will just make you feel bad your doing your hobbies while people are getting their heads chopped off

  • I am not sure i share this message. The fact that people out there starve doesn’t make me less hungry when i am hungry. The fact that someone out there is seething with rage because his daughter has just been raped doesn’t make me less angry because my car got keyed. The fact that there are homeless people doesn’t make me less worried about my cc debt. It can help me remind there are worse situation and keep it in the right prospective, but being hungry-angry-worried would still be the right reaction, if in the right amount. Virtue is in the middle, and those emotions are there to help you react to the potential negative effect you could get or are already suffering: control them, but accept them. They are normal, and one feel them because he cares.

  • Don’t get me wrong, I don’t wanna be the one who throw a spanner in the works concerning your idea of working like a dog. Although I know you’ve had your work cut out for you, you can’t going on in this way, otherwise you’ll end up being classified as all work and no play. Then mate, try working your socks off till the end of Friday if you’re longing for working your way up and let’s enjoy the weekend successfully.

  • Thanks a lot for such a fun and useful lesson. For me it’s the best way to learn idioms. Had fun all the way watching this video.����
