Getting stressed occasionally, is healthy and normal. It can drive us to get things finished on time. To motivate us to even get started. But as stress starts to become a daily occurrence and are for prolonged periods of time, there can be a risk of physical illness and mental health issues.
Stress management is key to our physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing.
• Do you have feelings of anger, overwhelm and feelings of being totally out of control?
• Do you use tv, overeating, gambling, drinking, or shopping as a way of dealing with stress levels?
• Do you lose it and get into arguments with loved ones?
• Is stress literally consuming your daily life?
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. It may seem like there’s nothing you can do about stress. The bills won’t stop coming, there will never be more hours in the day, and your work and family responsibilities will always be demanding. But you have a lot more control than you might think.
Effective stress management 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.
