Stress Management Q&A

What is stress management?

Stress management uses techniques to relieve feelings of anxiety or tension. Stress is how your body responds to a perceived threat. It causes your stomach to churn, your heart to beat fast, and your palms to sweat. 

Everyone experiences stress on occasion, but if your symptoms occur frequently, they can interfere with your quality of daily life. 

Research also suggests that chronic stress increases your chances of developing other health problems. By participating in stress management, it’s possible to reduce your risk for certain diseases. 

How does stress affect my health?

Stress is a biological response meant to protect you, and if you’re in danger, it prompts you to become more aware of your surroundings. However, when stress becomes constant, it increases your risk of various health problems, including:

  • Damaged blood vessels
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke 
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Insomnia

Chronic stress places an enormous toll on your physical as well as your mental health. 

What happens during a stress management consultation?

At Embracing Uncertainty Therapy & Wellness, your stress management treatment plan is based on your needs. There’s no way to prevent stress completely, but there are various ways to reduce the frequency of negative episodes. 

Before making any recommendations for treatment, your provider asks about your symptoms, including when they first started and if there are any situations where they’re worse, like at work or while driving. After gathering the information they need, they develop a personalized stress management plan.
