    One of my friends in my unit is about to go see a mental health professional at behavioral health for “abnormal stress reactions”. The guy gets stressed out somewhat easily and it has sometimes had an effect on his job performance. However, he does try hard and can usually get the job done. However, his stress management issues have led the CO to send him to mental health. He is worried that he might get discharged or barred from deployment. What are the chances of this happpening?

    I need to do a presentation about Biofeedback as a stress management technique to my A level PE class. It would be very helpful if there was a way I could do some simple biofeedback techniques with them to demonstrate how it is done, but I am not sure how I could do this without expensive equipment etc. Any ideas would be very welcome, thank you.

    Hey(: So I’m in high school and I was wondering what are a few stress management tips/techniques I can use? Were learning stress symptoms and management in my child development, and we have to come up with some techniques 🙂 Thanks.

    I have developed some not exactly healthy methods to deal with stress, including smoking. I mention it because needing to have a smoke is one of the biggest indicator I’m under too much stress.
    Work, money, eating right, difficult people, traffic, things breaking down around the house, negative news, etc…
    I don’t necessarily want to be able to handle more stress.
    I’ve started a journal where I have noted the things that I find stressful, and have rated them according to how stressful they are and how much control I have over them.
    I am open to any answers, even pollyanna & (non-fundie) religious ones.
    I’m looking for advice on what the path towards better stress management really entails. Any good books you could suggest, too.
    Thank you in advance.

    I think it’s pretty important for stress management if you’re really involved with politics.
    I guess the next question would be “do you actually take them seriously?”
    To be fair, HuffPo does have some good conservative writers.

    A professor was giving a lecture to his student on stress management.

    He began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see & asked the students: “How much do you think this glass weighs?”

    “50gms!” …. “100gms!” …..”125gms” ..the students answered.

    “I really don’t know unless I weigh it,” said the professor, “but, my question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?”

    “Nothing” …..the students said.

    “Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?”, the professor asked.

    “Your arm would begin to ache”, said one of the student.

    “You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?”

    “Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis and have to go to hospital for sure!”, ventured another student and all the students laughed.

    “Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?”, asked the professor.

    “No” was the answer.

    “Then what caused the arm ache and the muscle stress?”

    The students were puzzled.

    “What should I do now to come out of pain?”, asked professor again.

    “Put the glass down!”, said one of the students.

    “Exactly!”, said the professor.

    Life’s problems are something like this:
    Hold it for a few minutes in your head and they seem okay.
    Think of them for a long time, and they begin to ache.
    Hold it even longer, and they begin to paralyze you.

    It’s important to think of the challenges or problems in your life, but EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to “PUT THEM DOWN” at the end of every day before you go to sleep.

    That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh and strong, and can handle any issue, any new challenges that comes your way!
    i know it not a jokes…but though of sharing it n nt sure where to put it under

    I am working 2 jobs now, both of which involve alot of physical work
    (in other words minimal sitting at a computer, lots of being on my feet carrying heavy stuff around or helping a customer)
    They are good jobs, but between them I only get one day off, sometimes none at all
    and I’m used to a nice even M-F with the weekends off. Now my “weekend” is in the middle of the week
    and I’m also physically exhausted from early morning and long days.
    I feel like my freedom is gone.
    I feel depressed at times, especially when there’s still a long week ahead.
    is there a good book for a 20-something who’s working too hard
    and needs advice on how to relax, be optimistic, and make time for important stuff
    like her fiancee and her various responsibilities?

    I’m 16, a guy done with puberty and all of that. Recently this week I have been getting very stressed over little things. I haven’t had a problem with stress for months, not since maybe november. Anyway, a few weeks ago I noticed that I began to gain a lot of weight. I’m not sure what is causing all of it, it’s not puberty, all the tests confirm i’ve been done for well over a year btw. But I read today that stress causes weight gain, only thing is the weight gain started about two weeks before the stress. I haven’t eaten any differently (actually i’ve been eating healthier) so I can’t just not be taking care of myself. I’m not really sure what’s up, but I’ve been watching what I eat and all that stuff and I’ve never had to do that before. I truly think that the stress and weight gain are somewhat related, but to the extent I’m not sure.

    Whats going on

    My older sister is a fantastic person but when it comes to dealing with stress she just can’t handle it. She has a tendency to freak out and lash out on other people when put in pressuring situations. Way after the fact she sometimes apologizes. But I feel like she gets way too freaked out over minor issues

    (One of many) Example: We were at a bookstore and she couldn’t decide what book she wanted (she had a limit) she ended up getting angry my mom and I and then breaking down crying later when we left the store. In the end she left with no books at all.

    This is a frequent problem and I have offered therapy up as a solution more than once. However my sister is an extremely prideful person and prefers to deal with her own issues herself. I know I can’t force someone who doesn’t want help.

    I’m at loss of what to do. Is there anything I can do to help my sister with this? And what do you suggest I can do about it to deal with it? (Because it gets to me)

    I think I’ve been having some sort of panic attacks lately. I’ve recently given up smoking, but I guess the withdrawals, along with some personal stress, has caused me to be panic-sticken. I don’t really have the time or money for a massage or whatnot. I was just wondering if there is some kind of vitamins or homeopathic remedies I can take that can help me reduce my body’s reaction to stress. I’m going to the doctor on Friday, but in the meantime, can someone suggest something? I am just so tired of being stressed out.
    LOL… It was cigarettes. Weed isn’t exactly legal here.
