Reframing is a tool that can alter the pressure we put on ourselves.
Reframing means exactly what it sounds like - to put a different frame on a situation.
Have you noticed how different a painting can look when you change the frame around it? The wrong frame can ruin a painting, while the proper frame can please the eye and reveal details not otherwise seen.
EX: Instead of “I’m never going to get all this done" how about “In how many ways can I get all this done and more, and enjoy the process?"
While some people will say this is just semantics, I say it’s really using the power of words and focus to change your life.
Benefits of reframing
Looking at something in a different way, what we are calling reframing, provides at least two very powerful benefits:
1. Looking at a situation in a different way can reduce the stress of a situation.
2. Often getting a different view allows you to come up with solutions you would have never discovered before.
One of the best ways to get a different look at a situation or problem is to think about your favorite character in a book or movie, or someone whom you look up to. Then ask yourself how this person would look at the situation and solve the problem.
