Stress management

Stress management refers to reducing negative stress and providing positive feelings of being in control of one’s life and promoting general well-being. One should engage in self-care activities to manage stress.

It can be managed by adopting a healthy lifestyle, diet, exercise, deep breathing, relaxation techniques, yoga, adequate sleep, rest. Making time for yourself and your family, recreation, having some hobbies like singing, cooking, gardening, etc, keeping yourself busy in creative activities like painting, craft, etc is also important. Playing with pets, celebrating milestones, spending time with children, sharing feelings with family can also help.

Besides this, One can manage stress by dealing with problems or difficulties, believing that it is okay to be feeling these things. Apart from this, Family and friends should listen, pay attention to what they are being told, acknowledge, validate and empathize with their feelings.

When someone is distressed despite adequate self–care, has sleep & appetite disturbances, uncontrolled use of alcohol/drugs, persistently sad, unusual behaviors like talking or smiling to self, significant deterioration in socio-occupational functioning, has suicidal ideas and self-harming behaviors, violent or aggressive behavior, or is diagnosed with depression or anxiety, it’s better to seek medical help.
