Authored by William G. DeFoore, Ph.D.
These stress management tips put you in charge of your stress. Did you know that stress is what you feel inside, and it's not necessarily what comes from the outside?
Many people think stress comes from work, other people, the economy, etc. Actually, however, your stress level depends on how you handle what's coming at you.
For example, one person can be calm in a highly stressful situation, and another person can be stressed out when things are pretty good.
You're about to learn stress management tools and tips that will help you to activate your natural internal processes for creating lasting health and happiness.
Where Does Stress Come From?
Great question! Is the world stressing you out? Or, are you stressing yourself out because of your world? The position we're going to take here is the second one. Why?
Because if we decide that the world is stressing you out, we have to change the world, which is easier said than done.
Besides that, it is really more accurate to think of stress being a result of what happens to you more than what is happening to you. Here's how the process seems to work:
Things happen in the world around you. You get fired, hired, married or divorced. You have a child or your child grows up and leaves. You are lonely, or surrounded by people you can't stand.
Whatever is happening outside you, your stress level depends on how you think about it, how you feel about it, and what you do about it.
Your reaction might add to your stress, and even lead to anxiety, anger or depression.
If you follow the stress management tips on this page, you will keep your stress levels down, find relief and avoid stress in future situations.
Now let's move on and learn the stress management strategies you need to improve your emotional wellness!
