Finding Balance: Making an action plan
Week 3: How you respond to stress is up to you
Last week, we started looking at specific stressful events and examining how you react to them. This week, you’ll take a closer look at how you cope to see if there’s anything you’d like to do differently.
It can be as simple as trading a negative action for a positive one – like deep breathing instead of overeating. Small changes like that can make a big difference in how you feel. So try setting a goal this week, and make an action plan to achieve it.
Open your stress management workbook and start the week 3 activity.
