How to Manage Stress Like a Champ

A brief story of how I failed at managing stress.

Recognizing what does not work for stress management:

  1. Negative self talk
  2. Using mood altering substances to manage stress
  3. Failing to recognize the need to deal with emotions

Tools that do work for stress management:

  1. Asking for help from God and others (being honest, open, and willing)
  2. Deciding not to “should on yourself”; Henry Ford once said, “If we think we can or we can’t, we are right”
  3. Scripture

These things helped me to manage stress like a champ.

Be Still and Worship – Praise helped to get me out of the cycle

Catholic in Recovery – helpful tools and community.
