Stress Management
Toronto Coaching

Most people talk about stress but very few understand what it is. Everyone gets stressed out due to our busy lives, family, frustrations, demands, work, school, extra-curricular activities, and even deadlines. It is our bodies’ way of coping with threats, danger, or other pressures of life.

In small doses, stress helps us get things done and stay focused when under pressure. However, staying in a high-alert state regularly or for longer periods can lead to anxiety, fatigue, burnout, and a lower quality of life. Some people complain about feeling a weight on their shoulders, overwhelmed, having a mental fog, confused, lack of appetite, depressed, anxious, lacking motivation, heaviness in their chest, or even feeling tired.

Chronic stress can take its toll on your mental and physical health. If unaddressed, it can grow into depression or clinical anxiety. Even though stress is common, there are many strategies to help you control it. Seeking out some support and managing stress with professional stress coaching or training is a better way to address the root causes and to get rid of them.

Stress therapy will help you identify what you can control and the changes you need to make. Whether it is mild or severe, stress management will help you stay emotionally steady and take control of your life – even if you are facing challenges or dangerous situations.

What is Stress?

As you may already know, stress is our bodies’ response to real or perceived threats. During these situations, your body can set off a stress response to help you get out of danger or take necessary actions.
Stress is not about the actual situation but rather our perception, interpretation, and reaction to a situation. This means that we, unconsciously, tend to twist the reality into something that seems to be threatening to us. Besides, when we live with stress, we tend to focus on the worst aspects of anything that we are surrounded with.
Some of the common sources of stress include daily hustles, long-term worries, moving to a new job, changing jobs, illness, parenting, major events, or when you think that the demands of a certain situation are greater than your resources. There are positive stressors and negative stressors. Positive stress is manageable and can motivate you to stay focused, take action, and get ready to solve a problem, while negative stress is harmful to your performance, work-life balance, and health. Stress if unaddressed, can lead to a lack of concentration, inability to make decisions, and a feeling of anxiety. Some people experience physical sensations like tense muscles, sweating, headaches, sleep difficulties, and a racing heart.
