Another technique I will use is setting priorities. By setting priorities I can ensure that things will get done and I won’t find myself in a bind. When I have free time, I will do the things with the highest priority first, that way I won’t waste my time on things that are unimportant or can wait for a later date.
2. What are some stress management best practices or techniques you can use for Stressor #2?
The stress management techniques I can use to eliminate stress from change in social activities are, stop limiting myself to the things I can and cannot do. Have better time management so I can have things finished and not have to worry about if I can go here or there with my friends and if it will affect my personal, work, or school life.
3. What are some stress management best practices or techniques you can use for Stressor #3?
The stress management technique I will use to eliminate stress from marriage is staying focused. . I worry about if my marriage will succeed and if people will view me and my fiancé as a good fit and a good structure for my family. If I focus on why I am getting married rather than on the marriage alone, I will rid some of the stress that I am feeling behind the situation.
4. How does time management affect stress management?
Time management can affect stress management if you don’t manage your time effectively. A person will be more stressed if they feel like they don’t have enough time to do the things they have to or want to do. Whereas on the flip side, if a person has good time management, they will have done everything they need to do by their deadline. Having things done by the deadline will take away from the stress and it allows you to do something else that will bring pleasure and enjoyment to an individual and eliminate some if not all of the stress.
