Tips For Managing Stress

Dealing With Stress
Use these tips to help you manage your stress.

Stress is a part of life and no matter who you are or where you live, you are probably dealing with some level of stress. It’s good to understand that stress is almost inevitable but it’s even more important to find strategies that you can use to manage your stress. Stress that goes unmanaged or that is covered up with unhealthy habits can lead to a person developing health issues. Here are some tips you can use to manage stress in a healthy way.

Put Your Problems Into Perspective

Because we are so closely invested in the issues we’re having, sometimes it can be hard for us to put them into perspective. This leads to us thinking of these issues in terms of extremes rather than as normal parts of life. For example, not getting a job you applied for may seem like the worst thing that’s ever happened to you at the moment but after putting it into perspective, you’ll gain a better understanding of the situation. You’ll realize there are other positions out there that you could get and that you’ve dealt with tough situations before. Draw on your past experiences to help you deal with stressful situations.

Accept What You Can’t Control

It’s crucial to understand that there are certain things in life that we’re just not in control of. Many of these things can be our greatest sources of stress, so it’s important to come to terms with this fact. We are only in control of our own actions, so stressing out over the actions of other people or other factors outside of your is spending energy that could best be used elsewhere.

Take A Break

Whether your stress comes from your work life or personal life or a combination of the two, sometimes you just need to take a break from it. Instead of engaging with the issue that is stressing you out, take a moment to engage in a healthy activity that’ll take your mind off of your issues for a bit. You could meditate, watch your favorite TV show, or listen to music to decompress for a bit. Taking a break might even provide you with a new perspective on the things that have been stressing you out.

At Family Service Foundation (FSF), a social services organization in Baltimore, Maryland, we are dedicated to providing advocacy and support to individuals with mental and physical disabilities that have recently left inpatient settings. Integration back into the community can be difficult; for that reason, each member of our team works to provide services specifically tailored to each individual and family that we work with. We believe that all individuals can achieve their highest levels of social, physical, and emotional well-being in the community when they have the proper support. FSF specializes in serving Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and individuals with intellectual disabilities. We also have American Sign Language interpreters on staff at all of our locations for the convenience of our Deaf and hard of hearing clients.
