As I have said in many previous articles, stress can be one of the most debilitating emotions we can have. This is not only mental stress, but also, in many circumstances, it can lead to physical health problems, both in the short term and in the longer term. The sad thing about stress is often not so much the stress itself, although this is very unpleasant for the person who is stressed, but the fear of other people's reactions if the person wishes to trust a friend, family member or work colleague , even stress management specialists. Another sad fact about stress management, and as I am a stress and anger management professional I know very well, is the widely held view that stress management does not matter; which is a 'fluffy' concept which is not necessary, or which is only for weak minded people. From many years of experience now, I can tell you with all my heart that this couldn't be further from the truth.

We all know the effects that stress can produce and if you are reading this looking for a cure, or at least some relief, from personal stress or a loved one, the effects of stress need no further explanation. What I will do in this article is to suggest the main reasons why, from my personal professional experience, "stress management" can be a useful course of action.

STRESS MANAGEMENT CAN STOP STRESS FROM WORSE - An old saying comes to mind here that "a shared problem is a problem cut in half." From experience, one of the main factors that stress is stressful is that it starts out quite minor. This problem, whatever it may be, is often "hidden under the rug" in hopes that it will resolve itself, which is rarely the case. As such, it is then dropped and becomes a much bigger problem. By tackling stress head-on, you can stop it from getting worse right away, before stress reduction can begin. The course of action to take and the rates of improvement depend on many factors that vary over time, the nature of stress, and of course for each and every one of us, as we are all different. However, a reputable professional will tailor his approach to best meet his client's needs.

MANAGING STRESS CAN GET TO THE ROOT CAUSE OF STRESS - This is often not as easy as it sounds. Very often, the cause of stress is not really what the person thinks. The stress of the commute to work every morning, for example, may not really be the main cause of our stress. This could be caused by a colleague at work or even something in our family life, but we have fooled ourselves into believing that this is the main cause of stress because it is the simplest solution. Left to ourselves, the probability is that we will not even begin to resolve this stress and will probably leave it as an underlying problem. Talking to a stress management professional can help us get to the root of stress, aided by talking to someone with extensive experience on these issues, but also to someone other than friends or family, something I'll discuss shortly.

MANAGING STRESS MAY PROVIDE COATING TECHNIQUES FOR THE FUTURE - Getting to the bottom of stress is one part of stress management, but the other equally important part of the process is acquiring techniques for managing future stress. It often happens that talking to a stress management professional, while helpful and initially relieves current stress; It is of little use if the person is going to stress again in the near future. Stress management, therefore, provides a means of providing each and every person with the skills to relieve stress that may arise in the future, and the skills are tailored for each person. Therefore, this stress management is not only for the here and now, it can also greatly improve future well-being. visit:

LET US TALK WITH AN EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL WHO IS COMPLETELY NEUTRAL - It can be difficult to discuss any topic with close family and friends, especially stress. We may fear that family members will simply tell us that they love us and that it doesn't matter, friends can be very biased, especially if it is a family member or another close friend who is causing the stress and we may not want to tell them. to co-workers. for fear of being seen as weak or unreliable. Also, with today's job market, we just might not want to risk losing our job if this workplace stress is discussed.
