Dealing with the ups and downs of everyday life can be daunting. When you feel you’re not equipped to handle everything that is thrown at you, your mind and body react. As a result, you may feel stressed.
Stress is the feeling you get when faced with adversity. Life’s to-do lists, deadlines, and chores can add acute stress to your life. These types of events are manageable. However, major life events or episodes can trigger stress, including a death in the family, divorce, career disruption, or injury. This kind of stress can take a dramatic toll on your health.
All stress can be mitigated with the right mindset, tools, and techniques. Learn how to identify signs of stress and read about relaxation techniques. Use time-management skills to take control of your busy mind and focus on one task at a time.
