Removing ‘STRESSED’ From Your Vocabulary Can Lower Your Stress Level

How often does a co-worker tell you they’re “stressed”? Now one expert is saying if you feel you’re under pressure, you should be careful how you describe your feeling to others. Seth Swirsky, a clinical psychotherapist explains, “Just saying that you’re stressed can set off a cascade of chemicals in the body – epinephrine and cortisol – and neurotransmitters in the brain that make us feel, well, completely stressed out.” The good news is you can adjust how you feel by choosing your words differently. Swirsky suggests saying something like, “I’m up against it this week, but I know I will get there in the end.” (Daily Mail
