How to Vent for Stress Relief

Do you ever notice how many rants and vent sessions you

stumble up on when you’re scrolling social media?


There’s nothing wrong with a good vent session.

Venting helps you clear your mind,

Lower your emotional intensity, (and your blood pressure)

And connect with other people who can sympathize with you.


But…

When you’re venting to the same person,

About the same problem,

Over and over,

Never coming up with a solution,

Venting is doing more harm than good.


You make the problem bigger, get stuck in negative thought patterns,

and even start to weigh down the people who want to support you.


Venting should help you feel less stressed,

Release the negative emotions that are keeping you stuck,

and lead to a solution so you don’t have to keep venting about the same problem

when you’re doing it the right way.


Focusing on what you think the problem is, then

looking for a solution, either by talking to the right people at the right place,

or through journaling makes venting productive

so you feel good when you’re done.


Life coaching is all about helping you make changes in what you think,

how you respond or behave, and what you believe about yourself and others

so you’re less stressed, unstuck, and don’t need to vent as often.


When you take time to slow down and pay attention to what you think,

you notice the emotions and behaviors you do automatically.


Sometimes that’s venting.

(Sometimes it’s cookies. 😉 )


We all have things we do and thoughts we think when we’re annoyed with our

partner, at work, or when things don’t go our way.

Having a coach to listen and ask questions to see those things,

helps you make changes.


To schedule a time to talk with me, CLICK HERE.

The call is free, it lasts about an hour, and it’s all about where you’re struggling and what you want to experience instead.


We’ll have a conversation about things that feel good in your life right now

and things that don’t.



After we talk, if coaching feels like a perfect next step, you decide if you’re a YES or a no. Either way, you’ll know exactly what to do to get started.


Talk to you soon,

P.S. Your life beyond stress and anxiety begins with a decision. You can decide now to change how your body feels and how you respond when you're anxious, so anxiety loses its power. The question isn't, “Am I ready?” The question is, “Have I decided to be ready?”
