stress management

Stress management refers to the wide spectrum of techniques and psychotherapies aimed at controlling a person's levels of stress, especially chronic stress, usually for the purpose of improving everyday functioning. In order to develop an effective stress management it is first necessary to identify the factors that are central to a person controlling his/her stress, and to identify the intervention methods which effectively target these factors.

Stress affects the body. Physical signs of stress include:

-Headaches

-Back pain

-Problems sleeping

-Upset stomach

-Weight gain or loss

-Tense muscles

-Frequent or more serious colds

-Racing heart

-Cold and sweaty palms

-Trembling or shaking

-Sexual problems

A few minutes of practice per day can help in stress management. "Research suggests that daily meditation may alter the brain’s neural pathways, making you more resilient to stress,"

It's simple. Sit up straight with both feet on the floor. Close your eyes. Focus your attention on reciting -- out loud or silently -- a positive mantra such as "I feel at peace" or "I love myself." Place one hand on your belly to sync the mantra with your breaths. Let any distracting thoughts float by like clouds. Pace yourself throughout the day, taking regular breaks from work or other structured activities. Try mindfulness meditation. Limit (or eliminate) the use of stimulants like caffeine, which can elevate the stress response in your body. Plan leisure activities to break up your schedule. Find humor in your life. Laughter can be a great tension-reducer. Spend time close to nature, near trees and a lot of plantation.

Remember, a twenty minute walk has been proven to be a better tranquilizer than some prescription drugs.

Here are five healthy techniques that psychological research has shown to help reduce stress in the short- and long-term.

  • Take a break from the stressor
  • Exercise
  • Smile and laugh
  • Get social support
  • Meditate
