by SKILLING India SKILLINGINDIA
Stress management is basically a broad spectrum of psychological and behavioral techniques and psychotherapy geared to managing an individual's level of stress, usually for the purpose of relieving daily function and for the sake of improving daily living. Stress management includes aspects of health care, such as sleep hygiene, healthy eating habits, regular exercise, managing anxiety and other psychological disorders, learning new coping skills, and maintaining effective relationships with family and friends. The benefits of stress management include reducing the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and other serious medical conditions. It also helps an individual to maintain or even improve their work performance and reduces feelings of anxiety and frustration in the workplace. It can also be used as an individual behavior modification technique to reduce feelings of anger and frustration and increases productivity and happiness.
It is important that people learn how to manage their stress levels. A recent study revealed that the leading cause of death in America is chronic stress. Chronic stress is when an individual repeatedly and unnecessarily pressures themselves for small results that do not always materialize. Stress management is about more than just getting enough rest and eating well. The goal is to learn new coping strategies for coping with everyday stress. This includes stress management techniques such as meditation, yoga, exercise, stress management support groups, and learning new stress management skills such as goal-setting and problem solving techniques.
One of the most common forms of stress management is yoga. Yoga is an ancient form of exercise and stress management practice that works to strengthen the body, increase flexibility, balance mind and body, and bring about inner peace. One study found that regular yoga participants were less likely to experience headaches, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain than those who did not take part in yoga. Another study of yoga participants showed that those who practiced the traditional Indian stress management techniques were less likely to develop heart disease. This was especially the case for hypertension, which is a common condition among people who are under stress. Other common yoga stress management practices include breathing exercises, controlled breathing through pursed lips, sustained eye contact, deep breathing, scalp massage, and regular movement.
Stress management is important to everyone, whether they are at home in school or in the workplace. Many employers offer paid holidays or time off for parenthood, and some have established policies encouraging organizational leaders to set short-term goals and to meet them on a regular basis. To help employees create and maintain healthy work environments, management training in leadership, teamwork, communication, and stress management techniques are often provided through professional development programs.
The most effective way to fight stress is to be proactive and get started. A new study revealed that simply being able to say "no," "thinking positively," and "being flexible" helped employees stop negative thoughts before they even started. In addition, one of these three skills is an excellent short-term and long-term Stress management technique. Learning how to stop negative thoughts and become proactive may seem difficult at first but, once mastered, it can have positive benefits for employees. Another way to get started in creating a healthier work environment is to encourage employees to take short breaks from work to decompress or go for a walk.
Another proven short-term and long-term stress management technique is learning to use breathing exercises to relieve stress. Breathing exercises have been found to help people manage stress by reducing anxiety and tension and increasing the body's ability to relax. While this may not seem like something that you could do on your own, it is surprising how quickly and easy breathing exercises can become part of your daily routine. For these reasons, it is easy to see why management training in leadership, communication, teamwork, and stress management techniques is important for everyone.
