Stress Therapy in Rock Hill, SC—Stress Therapists and Counselors
You tell yourself that you’re not going to let it get the best of you. Today will be different. “I won’t let things stress me out!” You determine to ignore those thoughts that creep in – the ones that make your pulse race and distract you from your work, your family – that keep you from being happy. You try some breathing exercises, but they’re not working. You repeat a mantra you found on the Intranet, “Stress is not my friend.”
But the more you try to repress the stress, it just won’t go away. In fact, it worsens until you’re consumed. Today was going to be different and you wonder, “why can’t I manage my stress?”
What Is Stress?
Simply defined, stress is a state of emotional or mental strain, leading to nervous tension, anxiety, fear, worry, or distress. Everyone deals with stress throughout their lives. In fact, not all stress is bad. Stress can create the fight or flight response in dangerous circumstances. More often, stress is brought on by pressure in life, fears, and irrational thoughts that leave people feeling hopeless and discouraged. According to one Gallup poll, 55% of Americans are stressed on a daily basis. Some people find stress to be invigorating, but far more find it to be paralyzing. If that sounds like you, consider stress therapy at Thriveworks Rock Hill, SC. Call (803) 368-6499.

Many circumstances can cause stress. Nearly 90% of workers in the US report having stress on the job. Challenges on the job, whether with co-workers or a boss, can drastically raise stress levels for employees, and the loss of a job can add a new level of stress, too.
