What to do with negative surprises…

What to do with negative surprises…

A negative surprise is something not positive that we were totally not expecting. We humans like being in control and when the surprise is negative, we like it even less.

Our automatic nervous system puts us into what is called “reaction”…reacting to the surprise and the fact that we do not like it; did not expect it; cannot control that it happened; annoyed that we are annoyed.

One of the easiest ways to get out of reacting or overreacting, is to understand that whatever happened is not permanent except in our reaction mode. The more we deal with the situation, the better we will feel and the less anxious we will continue acting…once the negative moment gets stuck in our brain loop, it is very hard to remove it. So analyze the happening and get in front of your feelings and judgments. It can be very stress relieving.
