Am I Need of Stress Management?

As we touched on above, it is normal and okay to experience stress in your personal and professional life. In fact, stress is our natural reaction to self-perceived threats, be it sitting in hour-long traffic, which is making you late for work, or getting into a fight with your significant other that could potentially put your relationship in jeopardy. It is important to recognize that you cannot control these stressors and stop them from happening (in most cases); what you can control, though, is your reaction to stress and the actions you take afterward.

Many of us automatically react to stressful events with anger, frustration, and other negative emotions. These emotions might lead us to scream, cry, lash out at loved ones, or even binge-drink. We can all benefit from taking a few minutes to guide the direction of the stress we are experiencing. For example, we can better benefit from…

  • Deep-breathing
  • Meditating
  • Exercising
  • Journaling

…or, channeling our stress in another multi-beneficial way. However, doing so is a lot easier said than done. Fortunately, there is professional help available when it comes to effective stress management. If you are in the Bethesda, MD area, consider working with a stress therapist at Thriveworks Bethesda. Our stress therapists have taken the time and put in the work to acquire skills important to helping their clients lead better lives through stress management. And they are ready to help you as soon as you are ready to set up your first session. Your stress therapist will help you address the harmful effects of stress that you might be experiencing currently and they will pave the way for better stress management in your future.
