Master Stress Management with a Wellbeing Coach

Ease your mind, protect your health, and improve your relationships

Have your ever stopped to consider the toll stress takes on your life? Many troublesome symptoms impacting your health – headache, insomnia, fatigue – may not have a physical cause, but can be the result of stress in various aspects of your life:

  • Career
  • Finances
  • Relationships
  • Social media
  • Workplace

Failing to recognize stress as the cause can allow its detrimental effects to eat away at your mind and body, causing a wide variety of physical, emotional, psychological and behavioral issues. But learning to manage stress under the guidance of a certified wellness coach can help you regain control over aspects of your life you felt were spiraling out of control. The peace of mind and renewed sense of wellbeing can make you feel like a new person, when you team with a Wellbeing Coach to master the stress in your life.

Negative effects of stress on your body, mind, and behavior

The first apparent signs of stress are often physical, and may include:

  • Back pain
  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss and graying
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle aches
  • Sexual issues
  • Upset stomach

You can spend an awful lot of time and money with medical doctors who are unable to provide any relief. Then the persistent physical symptoms start weighing on your mind, leading to mental pressure and:

  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic sadness or clinical depression
  • Hopelessness
  • Impatience
  • Irritability
  • Restlessness

Troubled in body and mind, you can begin to adopt coping strategies that are ultimately damaging, such as:

  • Drinking
  • Drug use
  • Fighting
  • Gambling
  • Junk food binges
  • Impulsiveness
  • Monomania
  • Overeating or undereating
  • Self-harm
  • Smoking
  • Social withdrawal

Long-term failure to manage stress can lead to damaging conditions, such as alcoholism, drug addiction, obesity, anorexia, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. In many cases, this will mean additional medical treatments that never get at the root cause of the problem. Fortunately, effective stress management is possible, and a Certified Wellbeing Coach can get you started right away.

Effective techniques for stress management

Too often, people suffering from stress seek out distractions, like movies, television, and social media that don’t really provide an escape from stress. These distractions can be too sedentary, electronically stimulating, or disruptive to healthy sleep patterns. Other people sedate themselves with alcohol or drugs; or “blow off steam” with a wild nightlife. These diversions also build unhealthy patterns of behavior without addressing the problem of stress in your life.

While we can never totally eliminate stress in our modern lives, we can train ourselves to respond to stressors in a healthier way. If your customary response is to either fight or take flight, you must retrain your mind to respond more positively. Imagine being faced with the kind of circumstance at work that usually ties your stomach in knots. But instead of being overwhelmed by tension, you take a deep breath and handle the issue with complete composure.

Our Wellbeing Coaches rely on proven methods of stress management that enhance your ability to relax and build healthy patterns of behavior. With proper guidance and motivation, you can implement a number of effective techniques in your life, including:

  • An appropriate exercise regime

  • Yoga
  • Massage
  • Healthy socializing
  • Therapeutic hobbies
  • Time management
  • Conflict resolution
  • Crisis management

The techniques you learn from your Wellbeing Coach can deliver a lifetime of benefits. The sooner you take advantage of this great resource, the sooner you can put yourself on the road to stress reduction.
