Everyone Experiences Stress Differently

April 23 2020

Hello,

 

We all experience stress DIFFERENTLY.

 

The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) focuses on how the current outbreak can be extremely stressful and how every person is adapting to their needs differently. Strong emotions are in no way something that can’t be discussed right now.  We need to address them. Chat about them with the people you trust the most, it can be helpful. Students might speak to you about their stress, so be ready!

 

It’s important to note that coping can be both negative and positive.  The CDC shares the need to monitor increased health issues, mental health issues, alcohol use, and tobacco use. 

High levels of stress can impact people in different ways. How have you identified the stress in your life?

  • Lack of sleep?
  • Overeating?
  • Lost motivation?
  • Anger?
  • Worry?
  • Guilt?
  • Headaches?
  • Stomach issues?
  • …………………?

Take care of yourself! Schedule a Mindful Minute and set a timer, watch a 3-minute guided imagery relaxation video before bed, or set a daily goal of increasing your waking time each day.  Unwind and stay connected.
