Stress Management Series

If you’re feeling out of control and unlike yourself, the reason could be due to stress.

Stress could explain the feeling of overwhelm, inability to think straight and that sense of helplessness to do something about it. But there are always things you can do to get back in control of the situation.

Recognising your signs of stress and identifying your own stressors are the first steps you can take in order to do something about it.

Part 1: Stress - What is it and how to recognise the symptoms?

We all know stress and have experienced it at different times, in different doses and durations. But we often don’t realise just how much of a grip it has on us and the extent of the impact it’s having on how we function.

According to the Australian Psychological Society, stress is “feeling overloaded, wound-up, tense and worried, and occurs when we face a situation we can’t cope with.” #1

Understanding when it’s your stress response talking and not your usual self can help you put some perspective on the situation.
