Aug 17, 2007
Stress in every individual varies, depending upon circumstance and how they perceive life and work pressures. What is a "buzz" to one person may be the stress of another, and so it is important for every individual to manage their own stress through recognizing the causes and understanding the effects of stress on them and to others. Personal stress management is all about identifying personal stress and its effects, as well as practicing some simple yet powerful and effective stress management methods.

The advantages of managing one's personal stress levels are various, and touch not only oneself but the people around them as well. The pressures of every day life is not going to disappear, but the way a person analysis and deals with pressures is necessary for good personal stress management. Here are two simple steps for personal stress management:

Know what stress is and how it affects you physically and emotionally. It is important to know that stress is a part of daily life and it can never be completely eliminated accept this fact. The key is to know how to handle it when it confronts you; keep in mind that stress is the body's reaction to change, and it will vary with different situations. Not all stress is "bad", and not everyone has the same stress stimulator as you do.

Learn to identify your stress "triggers" and spot its signs. You can make a diary or list of your top stressors, rank them, and take note of how you respond to these stressors. Be aware of how it affects your emotional state and physical well-being. When one is able to analyze and understand how they react to their stressors, it makes it possible to come up with helpful and effective stress reducers that will help prevent the negative effects of stress.

Know you own mind and think differently about things. Avoid too much pessimism and look at the better side of situations that confront you. Taking off stress means making positive choices and steps to diminish stress in your life.

De-stress through great activities for the mind and the body such as exercise, healthy diet, fun hobbies, booking oneself a mental holiday like a peaceful and quiet time alone, and other alternative ways of relaxing.

Effective personal stress management comes from within and one's determination to overcome their own stresses. An individual who feels de-stressed and in control is more productive and healthier than those people who don't.
