Experiencing distress? Here are some skills to help you manage it

posted in: Resources | 0

What is the one thing you want to accomplish over the next 90 days?
With goals come the pressure to achieve them, and with pressure comes stress. Not all stress is bad. Good stress, also called eustress, is the kind that helps motivate you to achieve your goals.

However, if stress moves from eustress to become painful, where you feel you can no longer cope, you are experiencing distress. This is unhealthy stress, and the longer you experience it, the more you are putting your physical and mental health at risk.

Your mental health is shaped by how well you cope. Coping skills are trainable skills that can help you better manage distress.
