Biodot Question and Answer

QUESTION: How do biodots help people reduce stress?

ANSWER: As a rudimentary biofeedback device, biodots give you biological feedback about what's going on inside your body. The information, or feedback that it gives you let's you know whether your efforts have been successful. Say you were trying to meditate as a way of lowering stress. At the end of the twenty minute meditation period, how would you know whether your meditation had actually worked to help you relax? If you were wearing a biodot, and it had turned from black to blue you'd know that the temperature just beneath the surface of your skin had increased and (by deduction) you would know that your capillaries had opened up, that the blood flow had improved and that you had activated the relaxation response. That's how biodots help people to reduce stress. By giving you feedback on internal functions of the body that you can't detect in any other way.

6 Steps ModelThe Six Step Stress Prevention Model is the latest thinking on how to manage stress at home and at work. It’s a model that recognizes the realities of managing stress, promoting strategies that can be used to manage stress on the fly. It’s a model that is built on changing the structure of how individuals see stress and how they interact with it. It relies on simple time-tested strategies like journaling, planning, time management, cognitive restructuring, mindfulness and resilience training that have been around for decades and have been clinically proven to be effective.

JournalingMost of us only have a vague notion of what is REALLY causing us to feel stressed. For example, when you say "my job is stressful," what does that mean? There could be any number of reasons why you feel that your job is stressful. One of the best ways to pinpoint exactly what is going on is to keep a journal or a log of anything and everything that stresses you for at least a week, preferably two.

Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How they Heal
By: Belleruth Naparstek
Read Jim's Review >

Beleruth Naparstek: Invisible HeroesIf you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic event, you know the devastating impact it can have on your life and your spirit. Life-threatening accidents, illnesses, assaults, abusive relationships-or a tragedy like 9/11-all can leave deep emotional wounds that persist long after physical scars have healed. Survivors become "invisible heroes," courageously struggling to lead normal lives in spite of symptoms so baffling and disturbing that they sometimes doubt their own sanity. Now there is new hope for the millions affected by posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Drawing on more than thirty years' experience as a therapist and on the most recent cutting-edge research, Belleruth Naparstek presents a clinically proven program for recovery using the potent tool of guided imagery. She reveals how guided imagery goes straight to the right side of the brain, where it impacts the nonverbal wiring of the nervous system itself, the key to alleviating suffering.

Quick Stress Tips

What can I do to help me manage anger right now?
From the Article: Managing Anger

Assume the other person didn't intend to make you angry. What gets us all riled up is the thought that another person intended to make us angry. But this is rarely the case. (It's almost like assuming that when two people are laughing across a room they are laughing at you.) Most people who make you angry do it completely unintentionally. When you fully realize this it will defuse a lot of the anger you experience in life. If it's a friend, family member or coworker, don't even hint that your angry. Just ask them why they did what they did, and you'll invariably find out that if they knew you were bothered by it, they wouldn't have done it.
