Why you need to handle stress

“I’m so stressed! I can’t take this job anymore!” “I don’t have enough time to get things done!” Stress is a part of everyday life, but that doesn’t mean you have to be victimized by your stress. Victims are powerless, and you are not powerless! The truth is we were built to handle day-to-day stress; it’s part of our fight-flight nervous system that evolved to protect us from danger. We may have been built to handle situational stress, but we weren’t meant (or equipped), physically or emotionally, to live with chronic stress. And that’s a fact!

In this Self-Coaching episode, join me as I discuss the deleterious effect stress has on your body and emotions. You may not be able to eliminate all the stressful challenges of your life, but there’s a lot you can do to minimize life stress, especially self-induced, needless stress.
