We have started our Stress Journal project. Keeping a journal with our stressful events, our feelings, the irrational belief that makes the event stressful and then disputing this belief can help us manage our stress. It can also help us see unhealthy patterns and when we are aware of such information we can take steps to correct, improve or alleviate the stress all together.
REMEMBER TO DO YOUR STRESS JOURNALS!!!!
