We are all engaged in activities and situations that cause us stress: work, school, relationships, financial situations and life events. Stress can’t be eliminated completely nor do we want to eliminate it completely. Some stress is healthy and propels us toward achievement of goals. It’s when stress becomes excessive in our lives or we are unable to manage stress that it causes emotional instability and problems.
The first step in controlling stress is to assess our emotional makeup and ability to react to stress. It’s only then we can take steps to create emotional stability and tranquility.
