Black to Green: How to Inscape Stress
I visited my old school recently to give a pro-bono class on managing toxic stress. While I was waiting in the student personnel office a senior student popped by and lit up when he saw me. He said “Mr Carroll, you’ll never believe what happened to me!”
I said “What happened?”
He said I was at the community college last week to do an orientation. The staff their issued each of us with a dot to stick on our wrist. She said it was to measure our stress levels. I put it on and it turned black. The three colors black, red and green represent levels of stress:
· Black (most stressful)
· Red (Beware you are moving into stress)
· Green (you are in a good place)
He continued “I remembered what you taught us. I found a quiet corner, sat down for five minutes and practiced the techniques. I went up and asked for another dot. I put it on and it turned to green!
I couldn’t believe it was that simple!” He broke into a smile and said thank you as he gave me a hug.
