Stress Management Encompasses Techniques

Stress management encompasses techniques intended to equip a person with effective coping mechanisms for dealing with psychological stress.

Stress management defines stress precisely as a person's physiological response to an external stimulus that triggers the "fight-or-flight" reaction.

Causes of stress: Work, life, many things can start the stress reaction, including danger, threat, news, illness, as well as significant changes in one's life such as the death of a loved one. The Holmes Rahe Scale is used by psychologists to test stress levels.

Techniques of stress management include:

• self-understanding (e.g. self-identification)
• self-management (e.g. becoming better-organized)
• conflict resolution
• positive attitude
• self-talk
• Autogenic training
• breathing
• meditation
• exercise
• diet
• rest
• Stress balls

Some techniques of time management may help a person to control stress.
For example:

• becoming more organized and reducing the generation of clutter
• setting priorities can help reduce anxiety
• using a "to do" list of tasks that a person needs to complete can give a person a sense of control and accomplishment.

To Aviod Stress Management

• Define Your Priorities and Adjust Your Schedule to Reflect Your Values. No matter how hectic life gets, no matter how much irritating seems to be present, the truly successful people are able to rise and maintain their perspective. They can do this because they know what's important.

• Build Stronger Relationships. Because of the fast pace of our world and our lives we get into the habit of not communicating well about our feelings and needs. Many of us measure ourselves more and more by the quantity of our achievements rather than by the quality of our relationships.

• Recognize and Acknowledge Your Strengths. The vast majority of us think that through criticism or judgment we can shame ourselves into being different. But this rarely works. Most people don't respond well to disparagement, in fact they usually become defensive and resistant. We're no different. In order to make the changes necessary to create the life you want, you have to shift your position from focusing on your flaws and shortcomings to recognizing your strengths, talents and positive qualities.
• Effective stress management involves learning to set limits and to say "No" to some demands that others make.
