Hello Friends! After many weeks of work, I’ve finally finished my Stress Worksheet. This worksheet is a combination of my own experiences as well as a course that took many moons ago. In college, I actually had to take Physical Ed and Health … yes me taking PE [hilarious]. The mere thought of being in a gym with many people for Physical Education was ridiculous. However … thank goodness for online courses. I was able to do my practical exercises, by going to the track, and the exercises given in the course.
The good part about taking a health course was really finding out about stress and how it affects your state of mind and well being. There are several side effects related to stress which you can find here at Stress.org. Stress doesn’t have a true definition but according to The American Institute of Stress the term [as it is currently used] was coined by Hans Selye in 1936, who defined it as “the non-specific response of the body to any demand for change”.

Stress can affect your body’s day-to-day operations, causing everything from diet changes to mood swings, and suicidal thoughts. If you feel your stress is more than you can manage alone or with family and friends talk to your doctor about seeing a therapist. Working through my stress to identify what my triggers were was very helpful, so I thought I would create a worksheet to help you get through it. Here is the free Stress Worksheet download …
AS A DISCLAIMER | I’m not a professional … nor do I claim to be, so if you’re having serious medical issues as a direct result of your stress, please consult your doctor or therapist.
Please feel free to comment about some of the ways you deal with stress, and how you manage it.
