Stress Management Thoughts

More thoughts from the CBT show on the Great Courses. In this lecture, he’s discussing cognitive behavioral stress management.

Emotion-focused coping: somatic quieting, deep breathing/square breathing, meditation

Problem-focused coping: if the stressor is something you can change, focus on taking steps to change the situation, task-oriented behaviors

Seek out social support (can be emotion-focused or problem-focused)

Schedule and take part in pleasant activities


Stress is normal.

Sorry, this was a pretty boring entry.
