From Exym: What is the First Step in Handling Stress?
10 Ways to Manage Stress
The last few years have been extremely challenging, and many people have felt their stress levels steadily rising. During the pandemic in 2020, mental health services were overwhelmed by people struggling with stress and seeking support. Since then, mental health organizations have been making an effort to raise awareness about stress, and inform communities about the physical and mental health risks associated with high stress.
When considering stress levels, it's important to take into account the amount of support a person has and the resources available to them. Lack of support can cause loneliness and isolation, which in turn lowers people’s wellbeing, and impacts mental health, which can lead to elevated risk for mental illness. This key factor underlines the importance of community in reducing the impacts of stress and mental health issues. Social isolation is an important risk factor for both deteriorating mental health and suicide. As we strive for more positive mental health and stress interventions in the future, it's critical that individuals receive adequate support from their communities and clinical professionals.
