Summary

1/26

There are a wide variety of time tested techniques listed below which help cope with stress. It is worth taking the time to read about each technique and think about which one(s) may work best for you. There is no limit to the number of stress reducing techniques you can use at the same time.

This is one area where it cannot hurt to experiment to see which technique(s) work best for you.  

If a situation is stressful, consider taking a break and doing something that helps relieve the stress. For example, call a friend, take a brisk walk for a few minutes, or reach for a non-alcoholic drink that you find soothing, such as a cup of tea.

If it would be helpful to work through stress techniques in a group setting, many medical centers have stress mangement programs.

Last, but not least, consider professional counseling. If you have health insurance, policies have to provide treatment for mental health conditions to the same extent as physical conditions. If you have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at work, your employer may provide mental health counseling. All contacts with EAP personnel has to be kept confidential under law.
