你感到压力吗? 你能辨别你的压力程度及有效的处理压力吗?

根据美国心理协会(American Psychological Association)提供的资讯,  以下方法能帮助你管理你的压力.

APA offers the following tips on how to manage your stress:

了解你如何感受压力 Understand how you stress. Everyone experiences stress differently. How do you know when you are stressed?How are your thoughts or behaviors different from times when you do not feel stressed?

辨认你的压力源 Identify your sources of stress. What events or situations trigger stressful feelings? Are they related to your children, family, health, financial decisions, work, relationships or something else?

学习压力来时的信号 Learn your own stress signals. People experience stress in different ways. You may have a hard time concentrating or making decisions, feel angry, irritable or out of control, or experience headaches, muscle tension or a lack of energy . Gauge your stress signals.

辨识自己如何处理压力 Recognize how you deal with stress. Determine if you are using unhealthy behaviors (such as smoking, drinking alcohol and over/under eating) to cope. Is this a routine behavior, or is it specific to certain events or situations ? Do you make unhealthy choices as a result of feeling rushed and overwhelmed?

找出健康的方法来处理压力 Find healthy ways to manage stress. Consider healthy, stress-reducing activities such as meditation, exercising or talking things out with friends or family. Keep in mind that unhealthy behaviors develop over time and can be difficult to change. Don’t take on too much at once. Focus on changing only one behavior at a time.

照顾自己 Take care of yourself. Eat right, get enough sleep, drink plenty of water and engage in regular physical activity. Ensure you have a healthy mind and body through activities like yoga, taking a short walk, going to the gym or playing sports that will enhance both your physical and mental health. Take regular vacations or other breaks from work. No matter how hectic life gets, make time for yourself — even if it’s just simple things like reading a good book or listening to your favorite music.

寻求(专业)帮助Reach out for support. Accepting help from supportive friends and family can improve your ability to manage stress. If you continue to feel overwhelmed by stress, you may want to talk to a psychologist, who can help you better manage stress and change unhealthy behaviors.
