Your Stress Triggers are Unique, Your Coping Mechanism Must be Individualized

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, managing life’s challenges starts with the conversations we have with ourselves and those around us. Now it is a little strange to identify one particular month as ‘Stress Awareness Month’, since stress comes at any moment let alone relegating itself to peak during a particular month. Still, we will go with it and see what support we can come up with.

“Generally, people are more susceptible to stress during big life changes, such as moving, losing a loved one or getting married,” Kim Farris, OKCIC’s director of Behavioral Health, said. “It’s important to recognize what triggers your stress so you can develop coping strategies.”
