You know stress is a normal part of life. We experience it every day. It then builds. A little stress from today is added to the stress you experienced yesterday, which was already on top of the stress you felt from last week. No amount of rationalizing will make it go away. No matter how much you tell yourself that “that shouldn’t bother me, it’s silly,” it just doesn’t relieve it. What have you done to relieve stress before?
Well, there are a lot of ways to manage the stress that aren’t healthy. They lead to or create other problems in the process. Drugs, alcohol, gambling are among the most common UNHEALTHY methods of stress reduction. Consider hypnotic meditations. If you haven’t tried them before, now is the perfect opportunity. If you have tried them, you know what you have to do.
You’ve been experiencing a period of significant emotional stress, created by multiple life stressors. You know that Stress Management is called for, but what precisely should you do? Regardless of the details of your situation, you need to take action.
Whether it’s the death of a loved one. Perhaps you have an autistic child that requires special consideration. Or even an unemployed spouse. You realize that your situation is having a negative effect on you and so you want to make every effort to get on top of it.
But because there isn’t only one single situation causing your emotional stress, you feel confused in addition to your stress. You’re ready for additional support. You’re ready to experience clarity!
