Just about everyone who you talk to nowadays will complain about being “stressed out.” Thirty years ago, no one ever even used this term. Today, however, it is a staple in most conversations. We often refer to ourselves as being “stressed out” when we discuss our careers as well as our personal lives.
We all experience stress during the course of our lives. There is a difference, however, in being constantly stressed out and experiencing stress due to a certain situation. Anything that dramatically disrupts our lives is a cause for stress. Most people recover from the stressful situation after it has been resolved or over a period of time.
In order to really be able to help cure ourselves from being “stressed out” we need to know how to do the following:
- Identify stressors that affect our daily lives;
- Eliminate the stressors of which we can free ourselves;
- Learn to deal with stressful situations in a healthy way
