Stress Relief Tool – Learn Your Stress Triggers

By simply becoming aware of our stress source, we can learn coping skills to stay on top of it.

It probably will come as no surprise to you that most of our stress these days is mental. But what may surprise you is that most of our stress is self-induced; we do it to ourselves rather than someone or something doing it to us.

Now, not all stress is bad. In fact, good stress is actually helpful for getting things done. The first step is to understand the difference between good stress and bad stress, and then eliminate the bad stress. By simply becoming aware of our stress source, we can learn coping skills to stay on top of it – and my blog has over 100 quick and easy coping mechanisms you can try so you are bound to find at least one or two that work for you.

A five-minute, nine-question quiz by Psychology Today can help you learn what triggers your stress response. It gives you a summary of what triggers you based on your responses and provides suggestions for handling those stressors that align with many ideas already shared on my blog.

While we can’t control the world around us, we can choose how to react to situations. And that all starts with focusing on our good stress and understanding our negative stress triggers.
