Reframing is a technique used to change the way we look at things in order to feel
better about them. The key to reframing is to recognize that there are many ways to
interpret the same situation (ie. the situation such as is the glass half full or half
empty). Learn to get rid of negative thoughts or feeling that can result in stresses.
There are three simple things you can do.
For example if you have got into an accident, you may thank God that you have escaped
with only minor injuries. You could have been killed, or worse, you could have been maimed
lost eyes, feet, hands, etc. You could have been paralyzed. You could have been in
a comma and become a vegetable.
Another way to rationalize is to believe in coincidences and what it can do. For
example, Redfield in Celestial Prophecies talks about how you can learn from each event.
If you are religious or believe in spirituality, that can be a great coping mechanism.
For example, religion teaches us that everything happens for a purpose and it is the will
of God. You just leave the things to God to straighten out. The result is that your brain
does not have to pump out adrenaline to your bloodstream constantly. You feel relaxed.
There is no long tern stress any more.
