Stress Management

Inner Well Being > Counselling Area > Stress Management

If you’re living with high levels of stress, you’re putting your entire well-being at risk. Stress wreaks havoc on your emotional equilibrium, as well as your physical health. It narrows your ability to think clearly, function effectively, and enjoy life.

Effective stress management, on the other hand, helps you break the hold stress has on your life, so you can be happier, healthier, and more productive. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun—and the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on. But stress management is not one-size-fits-all. That’s why it’s important to experiment and find out what works best for you.

Stress is an expected response to challenging or dangerous situations. A small amount of stress can be a good thing and increase energy and motivation. But if the stress becomes greater than our ability to cope, it can affect quality of life and cause problems with physical and mental health.

Everyone encounters stressful situations at times, and there are several different ways to deal with stress. Also, stress affects everyone differently so a good first step in managing stress is to become aware of how it affects you. It is helpful to learn more about the causes and symptoms of stress.

Stress management starts with identifying the sources of stress in your life. This isn’t as straightforward as it sounds. While it’s easy to identify major stressors such as changing jobs, moving, or a going through a divorce, pinpointing the sources of chronic stress can be more complicated. It’s all too easy to overlook how your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors contribute to your everyday stress levels. Sure, you may know that you’re constantly worried about work deadlines, but maybe it’s your procrastination, rather than the actual job demands, that is causing the stress.
