Life Coach: How to Dial Back the Pressure

Updated: October 21, 2019 04:49 PM

Pressure in life, whether it's at work or at home, can mount at any time.  Pressure situations often add a lot of stress due to the fear of failure, and sometimes we make it a lot harder on ourselves than it needs to be.

Life coach Pam Solberg Tapper gave tips to help dial back the pressure. 

  1.  What is the worst thing that could happen?  Solberg-Tapper said to think about that question and then think through the answers.  By doing this, you can think about the potential outcomes more realistically.
  2. Then ask, on a scale of 1-10, (with 10 being very likely) how likely is it that the worst scenario would happen? This can help you determine the probability of what might occur so we can see the situation more accurately.
  3. Next ask, what is in your control to improve upon the worst scenario?  When you are clear about what you will do, it helps prevent your mind from fearing the worst, thus reducing the pressure.
