What do you do when you get thirsty? You get a drink of water. What do you do when you are hungry? You eat. What do you do when you are stressed and overworked? Do you work even harder? Most of us do.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 15, 2016
Stress management is about recognizing what works and consciously using those strategies to build your stress-reducing approach to life. Five Steps to Reducing Stress: Recognizing What Works (Brown Books Publishing Group) is based on author Genella Macintyre’s extensive experience as a corporate trainer and consultant in human resources management, executive leadership, personal and executive coaching, individual and family counseling, and program development and evaluation. Delivered in a fun, interactive and relaxed environment, her workshops are focused on finding practical solutions for personal and professional challenges.
“No single coping method is best for everyone. You need to determine the method that works best for you. Think of going to a dinner buffet. There are many foods to fill your plate. Some of the items you like; some you don’t. In the end, no two person’s plates are alike. You have learned what you like, and what you don’t like, you leave. Stress-reducing strategies are like that,” says Macintyre. “You need to recognize what works and fill your plate.”
Macintyre introduces readers to the Five Steps to reducing stress that made the difference in her life and continue to ease tension from the shoulders and minds of her workshop participants at Partners in Discovery Ltd.
“The biggest challenge is recognizing you need to give managing stress a priority. Many people say they are stressed but don’t make the time or the changes needed to remove stressors,” she says. “What do you do when you get thirsty? You get a drink of water. What do you do when you are hungry? You eat. What do you do when you are stressed and overworked? Do you work even harder? Most of us do.”
Macintyre’s essential model for reducing stress is built upon five basic steps: 1) understand stress, 2) take stock, 3) manage the external environment, 4) manage the internal environment, and 5) take action.
Five Steps to Reducing Stress is more than a self-help book; it is a toolbox of practical micro-strategies to build your stress-reducing style and recognize what works for you. It includes recommended activities for reducing stress based on the identification of different access points — physical intervention, emotional switch and cognitive adjustment — and the construction of your strengths around these access points.
