Awareness, acceptance and acknowledgment of stress indicators (symptoms) and stressors (causes).

Choice gives you the feeling of taking control of your life, celebrate the days of your life.

Direction and discipline give you a sense of accomplishment, and feeling good about yourself.

Expression of feelings, emotions and thoughts. Do not act on your feelings. Just express how you feel (in physical terms) if you are not sure of the emotional words.

Feelings, emotions and stress are body responses.

Grounding in your body offers you the ability to be and stay centered as you respond realistically to the here-and-now situation.

Hourly assessment of yourself and your body is helpful in determining stress indicators and stressors.

Invest in yourself.

Journal keeping is essential to uncover your profile of stressors.
