About Stress

Stress Is Natural

Stress is viewed today as something that should be avoided; however, stress is inevitable. We can’t avoid stress, so, we must somehow cope with it, manage it, or control it. The old way of thinking about stress simply does not work for many people. Instead of managing stress, what if we could use it to our advantage? We must learn to mold it into a source of motivation instead of something we try to avoid.

Sources of Stress

External = Environment

 

People

Weather

Obstacles (Ex. traffic)

Internal = Personal

Self Criticism (Voices in our heads)

Trying to be perfect

Being afraid of failing

Natural Reaction to Stress

The physiological reaction to stress is to create energy. To prepare you to act!

What you do with this energy determines if it is healthy for you  or damaging to your wellbeing.
