Keep Calm and Learn How to Cope with Stress - FREE ONLINE CLASS -
There is a lot of pressure to hold it together at all times, and if you don't, somehow you feel like a failure, stress starts to affect you and you feel defeated. Developing a healthy and balance style to deal with stress is an important factor in physical and psychological wellbeing. This is especially important when individuals are confronted with negative or stressful life events that can test their ability to cope, adjust and deal with stressors. So far this year has been a very stressful one! A lot of people are struggling trying to balance family-work-personal life, worrying about finances and child care, and fearing contacting Covid-19 now that the country is open and cases are rising.
Stress is unavoidable, especially now. It results from the changes we must adapt to and from not having the necessary strategies to face the current stressors. In today's reality, many have lost family members and friends to the virus, and others have lost their jobs, plans for the future, celebrations, and a sense of normalcy. Political issues that involve the reality of Hispanic children separated from their parents during the pandemic, and the stress of being black in America have also added a wave of overwhelming emotions to our country. We face stress not only as individuals but as a society. Managing stress effectively right now seems key to personal balance as we work together to defeat the pandemic and take action to create social change for those in disadvantage who face injustice and inequality.

“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
