Online-Parent Training to Release Family Stress
Managing unavoidable stress
If the tasks cannot be managed anymore, stress can't be prevented – neither by good time management, nor by appropriate expectations or thoughts. The following section discusses the techniques that can help to reduce acute stress and prevent negative outcomes!
There is a great variety of possibilities to react to stress. There are favorable and less favorable management possibilities.
Research data shows that negative management strategies are less efficient than positive ones! In addition it is clear that in many cases it's worthwhile to take action and not to brood over the problem for a long time.
In order to be able to behave efficiently in stressful situations it is necessary to think about what kind of things help us best to reduce stress. According to the characteristics of a stressful situation some special management strategies can be recommended.
Three simple questions will help you to define what kind of a strategy is the best:
situations where we have often chosen an inappropriate management
strategy, we are not yet capable of assessing the situation accurately.
Established perception patterns will automatically assess the situation
and activate a problematic reaction. When we are confronted with this
situation, or one similar to it, it is important to try to correctly
assess the situation. If afterwards, we can perform a profound analysis of
what happened then we can prepare ourselves for the next similar
situation. This will help us to choose a sensible and rational management
strategy in the future!
