Under stress is common for you? While a little stress can be good for you – it can motivate you and push you to your full potential; a lot of us are dealing with too much stress. Unrelenting stress, whether it concerns about finances, job stress, or over-committed responsibility can happen every day, it can mean that the fight or flight response can be activated most of the time.
Chronic stress can be harmful to your health and wellbeing. This makes it a priority to deal with your stress. You can turn stress into strength with the help of Psychotherapy.
The old adage that “you cannot fix a problem until you can identify the cause” is true of stress management as well! Whether it is a long drive to work, the boss angrily complain about deadlines, or worry about how you will pay the next bill, it is important to identify the causes of stress in your life.
Identifying your stress, even if they are a daily hassle, and how you react to them, can provide objective information to cope with stress. In essence, once you know the cause of your stress, things that trigger stress, and how you react to them – you are in a better place to manage your stress in a proper way.
In my practice, I found that different people like different stress management techniques, and that some of them are more useful in certain situations than others. However, like any skill, whether it is to learn to play tennis or driving a car – stress management techniques take practice. But the good news is that you can develop a suite of techniques to cope with the stress that you can use at almost any time.
