Stress is detrimental for your health, but is manageable.

Stress signs

  • Mental: difficulty concentrating, feeling overwhelmed, being forgetful
  • Behavioral: being irritable, eating/sleeping too much/little, drinking/smoking more
  • Physical: headaches, dizziness, chest pain, faster heartbeat, sexual problems

Manage stress

  • Maximize eustress (good stress) while avoiding other types
  • Action: directly address cause of stress (e.g. write down priorities, say no)
  • Emotion: change the way you feel instead of situation (e.g. meditation, exercise)
  • Acceptance: situations outside your control (e.g. support group, journaling)
