All stress isn’t all bad stress. At lower levels, stress prepares our bodies for day-to-day challenges by boosting energy, improving cognitive performance, and focusing attention. It’s when stress is too extreme, or lasts for too long, that it becomes problematic. If you’re living with high levels of stress, you’re putting your entire well-being at risk. Stress wreaks havoc on your emotional equilibrium, as well as your physical health. It contributes to heart disease, anxiety, depression, relationship discord, drug use, weakened immune systems, and much more. It narrows your ability to think clearly, function effectively, and enjoy life. It may seem like there’s nothing you can do about stress, but you have a lot more control than you might think. Effective stress management helps you break the hold stress has on your life, so you can be:
1. Be a happier, healthier you
2. Eliminate unnecessary energy drain
3. Be more productive
4. Maintain stored resiliency
5. Have improved memory, focus, and other brain functioning
Who wouldn’t benefit from a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun. The goal is to build resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on. Therapy and stress management tips can help you do that. Call us today to schedule your appointment!
