Stress Awareness Month: Stress-Busting Strategies

Identifying and managing stress can happen in different ways for different people. If you are looking for ways to manage your stress, here are some tips:

  • Recognize how you deal with stress
    • Determine if you are using unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, drinking alcohol or over/ under eating to cope.
    • Are these routine behaviors, or are they specific to certain events or situations?
    • Do you make unhealthy choices as a result of feeling rushed and overwhelmed?
  • Find healthy ways to manage stress
    • Consider healthy, stress-reducing activities like meditation, physical activity or talking things out with friends or family.
    • Keep in mind that unhealthy behaviors develop over time and can be difficult to change.
    • Try not to take on too much at once. Focus on changing only one behavior at a time.
  • Take care of yourself
    • Eat right, get enough sleep, drink plenty of water and engage in regular physical activity.
    • Ensure you have a healthy mind and body through activities like yoga, walking or playing sports.
    • Take regular vacations and breaks from work. No matter how hectic life gets, make time for yourself.
  • Reach out for support
    • Accepting help from supportive friends and family may improve your ability to manage stress.
    • If you continue to feel overwhelmed by stress, you may want to talk to a psychologist or counselor who can help you better identify and change unhealthy behaviors.
