Managing Stress with Higher Ed EAP

When things don’t go quite right, that gut-churning feeling, irritability, or anxiety you experience might be signs that you need to learn how to better manage your stress!

We all experience stress, but there's good stress and bad stress. 

Good stress energizes us and equips us to face challenges, such as participating in sports, competing for a new job or a promotion, or taking a trip to an exotic location. 

Bad stress can kick in from dealing with problems such as debt, grief, and any number of other life events, both large and small. Too much bad stress can translate into headaches, insomnia, stomach cramps, digestive problems, anger, and more. Over the long term, it can be a factor in serious health conditions, such as depression, high blood pressure, and heart disease.   

If too much bad stress is eating away at you, listen to your gut and get help. Higher Ed EAP can help you learn to better control your reactions through healthy and productive stress management techniques.
