How to Cope with Stress
Thinking of Solutions Outside the Box

Having a Variety of Stress Management Ideas
 in Key in Knowing How to Cope with Stress

There are as many different ways to learn how to cope with stress as there are stars in the sky.  You just need to think outside the box.

How are your decision making skills?  Are you a control freak going way overboard trying to live a life of perfect wellness?  Or maybe, you are the exact opposite of that, doing absolutely nothing, because it would just take too much effort.  Maybe, you try to do your best, doing a few things here and there, but you really don't get very far.

You would like to get better results, but you don't have a lot of money and you are very busy so you don't have much time to invest in learning how to cope with stress. You get along as best you can, but it isn't easy. You go back and forth between days when you feel in control and days when you think that drugs for anxiety are the only answer to staying sane. Some consistency would be great.

You would like help, but who has time to read books and who has the money to pay for counseling?  If only you could talk to others who have the same problems.  You need answers and you need them fast.  You, like most people you know, have so many problems, so many wellness challenges, and you feel stretched to the limit.  You just feel like crying.
