WHY YOU NEED TO LEARN TO MANAGE STRESS.....PART ONE
Stress is the way humans react both physically and mentally to changes, events and situations in their lives. People experience stress differently, but the reaction is based on your perception of an event or situation.
It is often said that stress is a fact of life. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, you might not be able to completely avoid stress but one thing I know you can do is to manage it, put it under your control to avoid the reverse which does not go down well.
Changes in our lives-such as going to college, changing job, adjusting to a new environment, keeping up with child care and school run, preparing for a big event, moving into a new apartment can really be stressful. Most of the time, these frequent causes of stress are sourced from meaningful activities we have long anticipated for.
The first step in managing stress is to know yourself and carefully consider the activities that stress you out. Learning to do this takes time, and although you cannot avoid stress in totality, the good news is that you can minimize the harmful effects of stress such as depression or hypertension.
Fundamental key is to develop an awareness of how you interpret, respond, react to circumstances. Being aware of this deep part of you will help you develop coping strategies or techniques for managing stress.
