18: Stress Relief For Business Owners With Professor Pete Alexander

Professor Pete Alexander, author of the book: “Lighten Your Day: Fast, Easy and Effective Stress Relief” joins Nana on this week’s Build Value By Choice to discuss how business owners can relieve stress. Find out about the different types of stress, why they are not all bad, and also find out what resources he recommends to increase your quality of your life. 


One way to reduce stress is to be grateful for the things you have. In any negative situation there will always be positives you can take from it. It’s up to you how you choose to react to a problem and finding things to be positive about can increase self esteem in the moment. 
What are your personal values? You should be able to use them to guide you towards the right solutions that stay true to who you are. If you don’t keep your personal values in mind then the situation will cause more stress. 
Eustress means beneficial stress. The excitement of a roller-coaster ride, a scary movie, or a fun challenge are all examples of eustress. The anticipation of a first date, the first day at a new job, or other exciting firsts also fall under the umbrella of eustress. Eustress is a type of stress that is actually important for us to have in our lives.
Your conscious brain only accounts for 5% of your thinking space, the rest is unconscious.
