SOME KEY CONCEPTS
With You Every Step of the Way
What is stress?
Stress is a highly orchestrated response to a real or imagined threat or challenge that includes biological, behavioral, cognitive, and emotional elements.
The ability to respond to stressful or threatening situations is critical for our survival. However, prolonged exposure to stress has a toxic effect on the brain and body.
Stress may be acute, chronic, physical or psychological. Physical stressors often have psychological aspects and vice versa.
The key is to understand that it is not that happens to you that causes stress but by how you respond to it.
Good news is that with coaching and therapy you can learn skills and techniques that can help you change your response to challenging situations.
