Why Manage Stress?
Posted September 22, 2009on:
Everyone experiences stress at one time or another. It’s just that some of us handle it better than others. The trick to dealing with stress is to manage the stress instead of allowing it to manage you.
Why manage stress? Because when it gets out of control it can be one of the most destructive influences in your life. If you can learn to manage stress, you can then have the resemblance of some sort of control. While you are still going to experience stress in life and cannot get rid of all your stressors, if you learn how to recognize symptoms of stress and manage them, you can stay one step ahead of the game and be more effective at dealing with the conflict that occurs with stress.
Make no mistake about it – stress does cause conflict. But by managing stress, you can learn to alleviate some of the conflict that stress brings on.
