Title: Dr. Cynthia Stuart- How to Manage Stress?

How to Manage Stress?
2
Stress Ways to Manage and Reduce It
  • Once you know what's causing your stress,
    consider how you can eliminate or reduce it
    effectively.
  • If you can't eliminate all of those items on your
    list, you can at least cope with them in a
    healthier way. 

3
Coping Tips
  • Consider your expectations and make sure they are
    realistic. Give yourself a reasonable amount of
    time to get things done and set reasonable goals.
  • Learn to say no and to live within manageable
    limits.
  • Learn to accept the things you can not change.
  • Determine which problems are under your control
    and make a plan to deal with them.
  • Talk to your supervisor about processes or
    problems that are making you feel overwhelmed or
    underappreciated at work.
  • Talk to family members about problems at home and
    enlist friends and family to help solve them.
  • Talk to a consumer debt agency, join a support
    group or go to financial seminars to learn how to
    control your finances.
  • Get help through a mental health specialist or
    support group for problems such as alcoholism,
    recreational or prescription drug abuse or
    gambling problems.
  • Consider couple's counseling for relationship
    problems.

Coping Tips
  • Know the situations or people that trigger your
    stress. Avoid triggers whenever possible.
  • If poor sleep triggers irritability, make certain
    you plan for 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night.
  • If traffic jams are a trigger, plan to go early
    and work out close to work, plan to get breakfast
    near work enjoy some quiet time, or arrange for
    a shifted work schedule that allows you to avoid
    traffic.
  • Schedule time to relax and to do activities you
    enjoy.
  • Set aside 20 minutes a day to sit quietly and
    breathe deeply.
  • Practice gratitude. Recalling what you are
    grateful for in yourself and expressing gratitude
    to others can help reduce stressful thoughts and
    make you feel happier.
  • Exercise every day. This can improve your mood
    significantly. Talk to a mental health specialist
    to help you learn tools to accept those things
    that are outside of your control.
  • Talk to your doctor about medication if you find
    yourself experiencing persistent mood changes
    that interfere with your daily activities or
    prevent you from feeling joy from those things
    that have made you feel pleasure in the past.
