Stress Management 101

We may not always be able to prevent stress. But we can work on relieving the symptoms.

What Is a Stress Reliever?

A stress reliever is an activity or technique that helps calm you down.

We all react to stress in our own way. Some may experience anger, while others may experience sweaty palms.


It may take some trial and error to find the best technique for you…

However, a few popular techniques include exercise, deep breathing, or counting backwards from ten.

How To Change Your Habits

Like any habit, practice makes perfect. Your new habits may not be able to eliminate stress 100% – but they certainly can help dial it down.

Can Stressors Be Eliminated?

The answer is yes and no.

Some stressful events are completely out of our hands and can’t be changed.

However, we can change the way we think and react to them.

Here’s an example.

Say a friend said something that upset you.

You can either keep your feelings to yourself…

Or you can take a few deep breaths and be honest with them.

That one conversation could potentially save you weeks of stress.
