Some of the approaches that can be utilized to help manage stress can include breathing exercises, meditation, exercises, meditation, or yoga, physical exercise, cognitive re-framing, gratitude journals or other positive psychology techniques, a healthy balanced diet, massage, and enjoyable social activities. You may have tried one or more of these activities in the past, and found that you weren't able to sustain it, and so you didn't reach your stress management goals.

Amidst all the bad news about the impact of stress on our well-being, there is also good news. There is a lot that can be done to help you better manage your stress and protect your health. Turning Point Life Coaching helps you to identify the areas that you need to address in order to accomplish this, and then we get to work and address them. There is no one prescription for managing stress, but rather a large number of things that can be done to help.
The basic premise of stress management is to prevent or eliminate your stresses whenever possible, but since stresses often cannot be eliminated or altered, we work together to develop a number of strategies that reduce the negative impact of that stress. The goal is to help your body get a break from the physiological activation caused by stress, and enable it return to a non-activated physiological state - a normal, or sometimes even to a very relaxed state - in order to protect your health and promote your well-being.
