Stress Management

StonehengeStress management is an overused term, but none-the-less an extremely helpful set of skills to use. Stress Management is 1) the identification of situations and triggers that “cause” stress and 2) learning to cope with them in a healthier way. It involves applying one of many different strategies and using one of many tools to understand or think about the stress trigger differently. It sounds simple on paper, but takes a little practice. Once new thinking habits and strategies become second nature, the effects of stress are minimized.

There are many common stress triggers (red lights, freeway traffic, barking dogs, social gatherings, late for appointments, rude people, family gatherings, self-doubt, etc…). Each person has their own personal triggers. The hardest part in managing stress is establishing new thought habits and not responding to stressors in the same old ways. The best way to develop new habits is to practice. Dr. Seay offers you all the evidence-based treatment approaches, support, and tricks in order to create a healthier and happier life.
