Reframing Stress

Kelly McGonigal gives a great example of how reframing is so important in dealing with problems.  It also links nicely to meditation and mindfulness, which enhance loving-kindness and compassion.  Additionally, mindfulness is a way of reframing stress.  We don’t judge it.  We don’t look at it as the enemy.  We just look at it. We don’t try to get rid of it or beat it down.  We observe it in our minds, emotions, and body.  We don’t react negatively to it.  It’s seen as positive, as a chance to practice.  It might have the same effect as reframing in the way Kelly McGonigal suggests.
