If there is one factor that can be termed our present world’s biggest killer, it has to be stress. Stress is at the root of all our problems. Everyone from a child to an old person experiences stress at all stages of life. Some people are more likely to get stressed out than others, and the triggering factors could vary from one person to another and from one context and situation to another; but the fact is that stress is a constant of life.
That prolonged stress can lead to problems with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and migraines is proof of the killer effects of this condition. People who have a chronic stress problem enjoy life much lesser than normal people. Stress aggravates health issues and makes it difficult for people to focus on the important tasks and assignments. It can also impair problem solving skills and erode creativity.
A multitude of strategies
Medication helps to an extent and is sometimes needed, but therapists look for research-based behavioral strategies that could be more long lasting and effective in reducing stress and improving symptoms of depression and anxiety in people.
Since each of us is unique and carries a different set of skills and interest; there is no “one size fits all” approach to handling stress. This is why not all strategies will appeal to everyone. A method called “Goldilocks” approach, which will give to its participants as many as 20 research-based strategies from which they can discover the ones that are suited for each of them individually, will be imparted at a webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional trainings for the human resources industry.
This webinar will have Esther Williams, who is a nationally known Educator, Author and Licensed Professional Counselor, as speaker. Just visit http://bit.ly/2eAYXat to enroll for this highly educative session.
