Life Resolutions- Learning to Deal with and Reduce Stress
Stress is simply your body’s reaction to an emotional or physical challenge. In our modern world, some amount of stress is expected, but prolonged tension on our bodies and minds can cause us harm.
If you are finding work, relationships or daily life overwhelming, you may be suffering from severe stress. Stress is not itself a diagnosable health condition, but it is often connected to disorders such as depression or anxiety.
The team at Life Resolutions have many years of experience in helping clients deal with stress. Our principal psychologist, Mary Magalotti, and CEO and Founder, Jodie Brenton, have spent their careers helping individuals manage the stresses in their lives. At Life Resolutions, we offer specialised support for people dealing with stress, as well as general counselling services.
Advice from Mary Magalotti and Jodie Brenton on Dealing with Stress
Mary Magalotti and Jodie Brenton know that stress is a part of life, but they also know it can be debilitating and harmful. They are dedicated providers of psychological services through Life Resolutions and have compiled some advice for managing stress.
A frequent cause of stress is our relationships and friendships. Take time to talk through these feelings with your friend or loved one and discuss conflict resolution methods that work for both of you.
Another part of life that often causes people stress is work, especially for those with a job where they seem to always be ‘on call’. Take time to unwind after work and try not to take your troubles home with you.
Try to find a pastime or hobby that takes your mind off the anxieties of life. Pick up something new that you have always wanted to try or get back into an activity you enjoyed when you were younger.
Exercise regularly, even if it is just a short walk after work. The endorphins released will help keep your body and mind healthy.
The amount of sleep needed to stay well varies from person to person, but aim for seven to nine hours every night. Any less, and you risk waking up already tired.
If stress is getting the best of you, it is important to reach out and seek help from a professional. Counselling can help you learn new coping mechanisms for managing stress.
