When Your are Feeling Stress
Remember to ask yourself, “What can I do about it?” By asking this question you can begin to put your arms around that specific stress and begin to take action steps.
Here is a “Rethink”- When something is stressing you consider the following 4 alternatives:
Avoid – Some stresses just need to be avoided. If I know I can take a less stressful route then I will take it.
Alter – Altering a situation often involves you changing your environment or your communication.
Adapt – Change your perspective – look at it differently from a new perspective.
Accept – Some sources of stress are unavoidable. Acceptance may be difficult, but in the long run, it’s easier than railing against a situation you can’t change.
For more information regarding taking action about your stress, visit the Rethinking Stress section of the Training Library and open the “How I Will Engage and Change” presentation.
