21DPC Day 7 – What Stresses You? Why?

This is Day 7 of the 21-Day Positivity Challenge held in March 2012, where we work on being positive for 21 days. The challenge is now over but you can do the tasks in your own time. Visit the overview page for all the tasks.

21DPC Day 7 Question

Today’s positivity question is:

What Stresses You?

… and…


(Even if you are normally not stressed, there will always be certain situations that push our buttons more than others. Do you know what they are?

For the second question, there are 10,000 possible situations that can stress someone. Why do the particular situations you mentioned above stress you, above all else?)

Your Task:

  1. Reflect and answer today’s question(s). Write as few or as many words as needed to fully express yourself.
  2. Give yourself a break. Today, instead of pushing yourself to oblivion as you may do every day, cut yourself some slack. Take a break. Leave work earlier than you normally do. Go take a walk. Hug yourself. Do something fun. And take some time to reflect over the questions for today.
  3. Identify at least one positive thing about your day. It may be something small or something big – as long as you deem it as something positive, it counts. If you have more than 1 thing to share, then by all means, go for it!

Share Your Answers!

After you are done, share your answers in the comments area.

If you’re doing this at the start of the day, you can post your answer for today’s question first, then work on your positivity task throughout the day, then return at the end of the day to share your results for your positivity task and your end-of-day positive reflection.

Check out other participants’ answers. Pick 1-2 participants’ answers and make a meaningful reply to them. Engage in the discussions. This is a group course, so let’s support each other in these 21 days!

Look forward to reading your responses!
