Flying on a rocket to space is probably stressful
While going into space is very cool, I had never really considered how stressful it might be. There are so many unknowns! So many things that can go wrong. So many things that if they go wrong will probably kill you. It’s insane!
So, how do astronauts manage stress? Astronaut Chris Hadfield discusses his strategies for managing stress here
He covers many of the things that I work on with my clients:
Know what stresses you - how can you do anything about it if you don’t understand it?
Understand what you can control AND then have a plan for it.
Understand what you can’t control AND see if you can accept it or let go of that stress.
