Stress Management Q & A

What is stress management?

Stress management is the practice of training how you respond to stressful situations or events. When an individual is stressed, they often experience symptoms such as:

  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Frustration


These symptoms have the potential to spiral and cause mental, physical, and emotional health conditions within the body, such as hypertension. 

Commonly known as high blood pressure, hypertension is a state of increased psychological stress. The condition is one of the most significant risk factors for the majority of cardiovascular diseases that are acquired during one’s lifespan.

Dr. Mark aims to provide all of his clients with the appropriate tools needed to address the root cause of their stress. He also provides individuals with the ability to intentionally shift their body into a positive state during a stressful situation or event.


What causes stress?

A variety of factors relating to an individual’s professional and personal life often influence stress. Examples of occupational stress include:

  • Working long hours
  • Having an overwhelming workload and responsibilities
  • Being unhappy in a job
  • Fear of termination
  • Workplace harassment
  • Working in an unhealthy environment or under dangerous conditions


Examples of stress caused by an individual’s personal life include:

  • Death of a loved one
  • Becoming the primary caregiver for a loved one 
  • Divorce or relationship problems
  • Increased financial obligations
  • Traumatic events such as sexual assault


How individuals react to these stresses differs dramatically. Reactions to stress are often dependant on personality, as well as the coping mechanisms that one practices. These reactions have the potential to either increase or decrease the overall effects of stress on the body.
