Stress Management Q&A

What is stress management?

Stress management refers to the steps you take to overcome adversity and various challenges in your life. No matter what those challenges are, you can work with a licensed professional therapist at Integral Therapy and Counseling to develop or improve coping skills that help you get through each day. 

While you might not feel overwhelmed all the time, stress is the collection of automatic emotional, mental, and physical responses to life’s hurdles. In moderation, stress can be a motivator for problem-solving and growth. However, too much stress can negatively impact your mental and physical well-being and can even lead to complications from various illnesses. 

How does stress management work?

Integral Therapy and Counseling combines individualized therapy with principles to help you manage the stress in your life. With in-person or telehealth appointments, you can work with a licensed provider to develop coping skills and identify strategies you can use to reduce the impact stress has on your wellness. 

Stress management tactics in your life might include:

  • Practicing relaxation techniques
  • Developing time management skills
  • Improving your emotional awareness
  • Strengthening your interpersonal relationships

It can also help to make changes in your lifestyle that foster better overall health and wellness, such as exercising regularly and developing a nutritionally well-rounded diet. 

Can I benefit from stress management?

Some many signs and symptoms don’t come from specific mental health disorders but instead come from having too much stress in your life. If you notice signs or symptoms that indicate elevated stress, setting up a consultation at Integral Therapy and Counseling can rule out other causes and get you on track to effective stress management.
