hear about it all the time, we see it all around us, and we experience it in our
lives daily. But what IS stress, really? Can we get rid of it? Or do we just
have to learn to deal with it?
This site, designed by a health care
professional, is intended as a workshop for stress, to first develop
understanding of stress and its effects, and second, to develop tools for coping
with stress. The material is presented in an entertaining and enjoyable manner,
but is sincere in intent to help you deal with our hectic modern
The pages are designed as a series of lessons,
to be taken one at a time, and at your own pace. Take each page in sequence, and
use the “Exercises” pages (no, not sit-ups!) for journaling, to help develop
insights into your own stress levels and coping patterns. Print out the
exercises, and use additional paper to get the maximum benefit from this course.
Hopefully, going through this workshop will help you develop the stress
management techniques that you need, but if further help is needed, please
consult with a mental health professional. Some actual WORK is required,
and (uh-oh) self discipline- to get the full benefit of these lessons, please do
the journaling required- it's worth it!
Come back to these pages and review, go over
the pages that you have journaled, practice what you have learned, and you too
will SAIL AWAY FROM STRESS!
