How to Cope with Stress
Start Rethinking the Way You Think About Stress
Experts can say with certainty that stress has a measurable effect on both our mental health and our physical well-being. From weight gain to skin conditions, digestive issues to migraines, and an increase in feelings of anxiety and depression, stress has a lot of power over determining our quality of life.
Unfortunately, we live in a culture where a majority of people still view stress as something trivial and out of our control. Both of these understandings are false, and I created this email series, How to Cope with Stress, because I want to start changing the narrative.
If you’re interested in learning about how to recognize the effects of stress, gain a better understanding of what stress is, and how to start building resilience to cope with it, don’t miss out on this resource!
Meet Sue Williams, the Facilitator of How to Cope with Stress
As a graduate from one of the world’s largest nutrition schools, the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), I felt empowered to help people transform their lives. This lead me to become a Health Coach and an Author and has taken my passion and commitment to encourage healthy living to a whole new level. Sharing my passion with my family, friends, and loved ones through a combination of listening, learning, and suggesting small incremental changes, transformation to a healthy lifestyle for many became a reality. The process of transformation is not that hard, nor does it take a lot of will-power, but rather, it takes small incremental steps that can be easily integrated into your daily lifestyle, and these small steps over time, makes all the difference in the world.
Stress and the Stress Cycle
Stress is an inevitable part of life, and it manifests in a multitude of ways throughout our body and mind, and shifts our perspective on the world around us.
Although stress is inevitable, it isn’t unmanageable. Many people just don’t understand how the stress cycle works within the body, and therefore don’t know how to manage it effectively.
For example, instead of dealing with the issues that are causing discomfort at work, we reach for a glass of wine. After a fight with our partner, we buy a pint of ice cream to drown our sorrows in. Unfortunately, by using quick and temporary fixes for the stress in our lives, we aren’t allowing ourselves to complete the stress cycle, thus creating an environment for stress to stay stuck in our bodies.
My goal for this resource is to prove to you that there are ways for you to manage your stress effectively, as long as you start accepting that stress is going to be an ever-present part of your life and that it’s up to you to find unique and personalized ways to grapple with it.
That’s what I’ll be exploring and discussing in my How to Cope with Stress Email Series. I hope that you decide to join me!
