Stress Management and Priorities
Self-soothing techniques and priority-setting skills are too often lacking in our fast world – leading to a reliance on alcohol/drugs and other crutches to ‘calm down’ and stop negative mind-chatter.
Heavy responsibility can lead to a feeling that the world is overwhelming. Chronic stress can lead to health problems, lack of energy, loss of sexual desire and depression.
Some of the questions I hear the most around stress are …
“Ever since my last child was born, I don’t feel the joy as much anymore. I am constantly busy and often feel overwhelmed. I KNOW I should be doing more ‘self-care’ for myself but I never end up having the energy to do it. How do I feel zest again? ” ~ 36 year old mother of two.
“I get so cranky when I am feeling stressed. I end up being a royal b*tch to my husband. No wonder he never wants to have sex anymore.” ~ 45 year old business woman.
