Self-Care & Stress Management
When stress becomes overwhelming it can damage an individual's health, productivity, mood, relationships, and quality of life. Stress can sneak up on you so that being drained and overwhelmed starts to feel normal. The person may not recognize how much it’s affecting them, even as it takes a heavy toll on their mind, body, and behavior.
The modern life is full of frustrations, deadlines, and demands. The stress response is the body’s way of protecting the individual, and helps them rise to meet challenges. Self-care involves changing the stressful situation, changing responses when you can’t change the stressful situation, taking care of yourself, and making time for rest and relaxation. Therapy focuses on replacing old emotional habits with healthier ways of thinking, feeling, behaving, and relating to others.
