Mary Magalotti advice on Stress

Stress is a part of being human – everyone feels it from time to time, and it can help motivate us to be our best. Although alone stress is not a diagnosable ailment, severe and ongoing stress has a high risk of causing mental, emotional, and physical illnesses. Therefore, it is essential that people learn and develop mechanisms to not only deal with stress but also address the root of what is causing stress in the first place.

Everyone has different methods of dealing with stress, and what works for someone else may not work for you. It is important to find a technique for coping that suits you and your lifestyle. While it can help to take time to speak to friends and family about your emotions, an outsider perspective can be particularly useful.

At Life Resolutions, our psychologists have extensive knowledge and experience in helping people create their own methods to deal with stress. Our principal psychologist, Mary Magalotti, and CEO and Founder, Jodie Brenton, know the huge impact stress can have on people’s mental health. Here at Life Resolutions, we offer specific counselling services for people dealing with stress in addition to an array of other counselling services.

Mary Magalotti and Jodie Brenton have also put together a list of practices that can help you manage stress.

Advice from Mary Magalotti on Dealing with Stress

Mary Magalotti and Jodie Brenton have dealt with their own share of stress, and are passionate about providing psychological services through Life Resolutions to help people handle whatever causes stress in their own lives. Here are some tips that can help you manage.

Maintain a work/life balance – avoid overcommitting at work and create a space at home where work is not on your mind.

Address any personal conflicts – instead of stewing or worrying about arguments with friends or family, address them as soon as you can.

Do something you love – try taking up a hobby that gives you a sense of achievement and accomplishment, like learning a new recipe or joining a sports team.

Exercise regularly – it is important to make time for exercise as it is proven to release tension in both your body and your mind. Even going for a short walk around your neighbourhood can help get these healthy endorphins flowing.

Ensure you get enough sleep – try to maintain a consistent bedtime. This will go a long way towards keeping your body and mind healthy.

Find what works for you – remember that everyone is different, so try new strategies to learn what helps you best.

Seek help – Do not wait until stress has made life too difficult to bear – seek help from professional when you are starting to feel overwhelmed.
