O: Open a Stress Relief Toolbox
Waiting until we’re overstressed and pushed well beyond our limits is not the time to try to figure out coping techniques. If we have a tool box of possible de-stressing techniques at our fingertips, it’s easier to access them and pull out the tools when we need them.
Help Guide has a page, Stress Management: How to Reduce, Prevent, and Cope with Stress, which talks about stress management and has several different ways to combat stress in positive ways.
Help Guide’s Stress Relief Toolbox
Come up with a list of healthy ways to relax and recharge. Try to implement one or more of these ideas each day, even if you’re feeling good.
If you had to get a Stress Relief Toolbox ready, what would you put in yours?
