Stress Management

Stressors can harm your personal relationships, limit your ability to work effectively, and even make you susceptible to illness. It is important to recognize your stressors and learn how to prevent and avoid them.

Stress is relative and will vary depending on your perception of a situation. Our interpretation of situations drives the level of stress we feel. It is important to maintain a positive outlook and overcome unproductive negative thoughts.

When you feel in control of a situation, stress is low. Therefore, gaining a feeling of control can help to reduce the amount of stress you experience. Realize that in life there are occasional setbacks, but these setbacks won't ruin the rest of your life. You will overcome obstacles by working hard and maintaining a positive attitude.

This website provides stress management techniques that can help you to cope with stress, as well as prevent it.
