Last week, we asked you to rate your overall stress level and think about where your stress comes from. This week, you’re going to get a little bit more specific by writing about a single stressful situation and taking a look at how you reacted to it.
Tracking your response to stress can make it easier to spot patterns – the first step toward identifying what you’d like to change. Try to write in your stress journal at least once a week throughout the Finding Balance program. The more you write, the more you’ll get out of it.
Open your stress management workbook and start the week 2 activity.
