"Stress is not what happens to us. It is our response to what happens and response is something we can choose." - Maureen Kiloran
Now for the last couple of blogs we have been speaking on the importance of emotional intelligence and its four components. These four components were relationship management, self-awareness, self-management, and social awareness. By understanding these four basics, we get a holistic understanding of what emotional intelligence is and how to apply it in our everyday lives in order to be more efficient with our relationships at work or life, our own emotions and awareness, and overall sanity. With that being said we can move on to another topic which is stress management and the different strategies you can occupy yourself with in order to reduce and manage your stressors so you can have an overall health and balanced life!!
Stress management definition according to the Berkeley Well Being Institute, is defined as the "tools, strategies, or techniques that reduce stress and reduce the negative impacts stress has on your mental well-being or physical well-being." These strategies and techniques are what we will be going over the next couple of weeks to understand how stress management improves our body's overall well-being and autonomy!! Now let's go into some benefits of stress management before we wrap it up and conclude.
Moods become more stable
Thoughts become more clear
Risk of illness decreases
Control your weight
Have less muscle tension
Be in a better mood
Get along better with family and friends
These are all the benefits of having stress management routines and habits within your life so that you are able to be as optimal and healthy as possible. Stress management also builds our overall resilience and can help us become more sophisticated in hard times. Hope you enjoyed the blog, and I hope you are going to enjoy my next couple of blogs and stress management techniques. With that being said, peace!! :)
