The word stress refers both to physical and to emotional responses to the pressures of life. Sometimes, stress affects you positively, motivating you to perform at your peak level. On the other hand, you may also experience negative impacts of stress, such as insomnia, headaches, or muscular tension.
Stress management is an unavoidable challenge. Health Promotion has compiled the collection of resources listed in the right-hand navigation to help you meet this challenge. Reviewing these resources will help you develop a personalized strategy for managing not only your stressors, but also your responses to them.
If you are experiencing stress that is negatively affecting you we recommend you make an appointment with the Counseling Center.
