What is Stress management?

Category: Lifestyle Modifications

false

Not all stress can be avoided, and it’s not healthy to avoid a situation that needs to be addressed. The goal should be a balanced life and the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on. Resources such as meditation, exercise, family and friends can be very helpful.
