More Tips for Managing Today’s Stress

In last week’s column I talked about how today’s stress is different and provided proven tips on how to de-stress in these changing times. This week we’re going to take a deeper look at the subject and offer more tips for relieving stress.

First, it’s important to acknowledge when you (or people you love) are experiencing extra stress, whether financial, health, relationship or job-related stress, or uncertainty about the future. We need to become more aware of how stress is affecting attitudes, communications, health and quality of life. Then we have to take personal responsibility, realizing that our moment-to-moment choices do count. They create a map of which emotional roads we will travel on each day and what their destination is.

The process of managing stress isn’t the same for everyone, because of different situations and differences in individual makeup. Yet, there are simple, effective steps any of us can take.
