Stress Management Skills Blogs

Stress is an emotional and physical reaction to your experience, (both real and imaginary).

Stress can be a positive factor or a negative factor, depending on the person and the context.

Stress can be good because stress can trigger you to make an effort to make the situation better. (If you felt no stress you probably would do nothing of any value).

Stress can also be bad; if you feel that stress is wearing-you-down, rather than psyching-you-up.

Stress management is about ensuring that stress is a positive factor in your life. Stress management is also about PREVENTING stress from having a toxic affect on your mind body and spirit.

Stress management is a combination of managing BOTH the external reality, and the internal perceptions of reality.

The net result is you experience stress only as a positive factor.
