Living With Stress

Life is full of curveballs, but those who live with stress are hit extra hard. Stress—whether a chronic problem or acute from dealing with a major life event—can make a person feel like the weight of the world is on their shoulders, impacting their mental and physical well-being. Symptoms can range from feeling overwhelmed, agitated, or depressed to chest pains, headaches, and stomach problems. Assess your stress levels as managing stress can make it difficult to focus on work projects, attend social functions, or just participate in day-to-day living. Stress can also increase unhealthy eating and drinking habits. Untreated, chronic stress can contribute to long-term conditions like obesity, sexual dysfunction, gastrointestinal problems, and other physical and mental illnesses. Fortunately, stress is highly treatable, and patients who learn to cope with stress can manage whatever problems are thrown at them.

AbleTo helps patients dealing with stress understand the root of their issues and learn coping strategies to manage unexpected changes. We help participants learn to target the early warning signs of stress and develop healthy habits that can be integrated into a positive daily routine. Simple changes in eating habits, short meditation and breathing exercises, and one-on-one counseling teach participants to react to stress with realistic expectations. Treating stress can reduce associated anxiety and depression, allowing participants to strengthen personal relationships and get back to living.
