Keeping Calm During Stressful Times

Posted on: August 20th, 2019 by Dr. Susan Pazak

Stress can affect your entire body and is a primary contributor to many common emotional and physical problems people experience every day.  Stress is something we address in all types of counseling sessions include addiction counseling, marriage counseling and couples counseling.  A good psychology expert will not only get to the root cause of stress, but also offer coping skills to help reduce tension.  Let’s take a look at a few strategies everyone can use to help ease anxiety during stressful times.

Your situation is temporary

Regardless of how bad things might seem, remember, your situation is temporary. Things could get worse before they get better, but be assured, they will get better.

Take each moment as it comes

Worrying about tomorrow does not solve today’s problems.  On the contrary, it often causes increased anxiety and a feeling of being overwhelmed.  Deal with each moment as it comes, rather than trying to solve all of tomorrow’s problems at once.

Will it matter 10 years from now?

Think about whether or not the problem you are facing will really matter in ten years.  Many of the most common contributors to stress are situational and temporary.
