Stress Management

What is Stress Management?

Stress occurs when we feel like what is required of us exceeds our emotional, physical, or mental resources. Instead of feeling excited and energized about tasks, you can start to feel overwhelmed or even demotivated and burnt out.

Life can be very stressful at times, especially when we have too much on our plates. Learning how to manage stress effectively is important to prevent burnout. It can be challenging to set priorities when there is so much that we want and/or need to get done. It can also be hard to say “ no”  when others are relying on us.

Learning how to manage stress can get you out of a pickle, and can help you put systems in place to keep things running as smoothly as possible in the future.

Is your stress level getting out of control?

Are you:

  • Frequently preoccupied or distracted by your worries?
  • Becoming short-tempered with people who don’t deserve it because you have too much stress?
  • Restless or sleepless because you don’t know how to cope with daily hassles or changes in your life?
  • Procrastinating or zoning out unproductively because you just can’t face what’s stressing you?
  • Having trouble meeting your work and family responsibilities because you’re too overwhelmed?
  • Starting to withdraw socially?
  • Having difficulty making decisions, constantly second-guessing yourself?
  • Starting to avoid activities you once enjoyed?
  • Spending little time doing activities simply for fun or relaxation?
