What Is Stress Management

A working definition would be that Stress Management is a skill set whereby a person can effectively minimize or eleviate the affects of stress in his or her life and maintain balance and a sense of internal control over the direction and meaningfulness of his or her life . In other words--the external stressors in life don't manage us, we learn to manage the external stressors. As a result of effective stress management, we can expect to find that our mind and body are in balance--we are not experiencing physiological symptoms of unresolved stress, such as headaches, GI complaints, sleep problems, unexplained back or neck pain, or other physical manifestations of stress. And we are not experiencing mental or emotional symptoms of unresolved stress, such as constant worry, rehearsals and rehashing, regret and second-guessing ourselves. Instead, we have learned the skills to confront issues as they present themselves, with calmness and rational thinking. We learn to forgive ourselves and others for our human frailties and imperfections, and love ourselves for doing the best that we can, and being the best that we can be.
