Effective Ways to Manage Stress #3

3. Stress:  Choosing What to Tackle and What to Release

When facing a stressful time, it can be very helpful to categorize and prioritize the things that are causing your stress.  There are two critical questions to ask yourself when doing this:

In this situation, is it a high priority or a low priority?

Is it easy to change or difficult to change?

When you ask yourself the two questions (high priority or low priority, able to change or difficult to change?) you can determine where it’s best to put your time and energy.

Not every issue or situation is worth the attention we give it; sometimes we stress over things that really don’t matter, or things we can’t change.  Use these questions to help you decide which problems deserve your attention and which ones don’t, and spend your energy accordingly.
