‘Stress’, a word commonly used, may as such be related to changes that facilitate growth and better health (a type called as ‘eustress’), but at other times may have a negative and unhealthy impact on one’s body and mind (when it is called ‘distress’). The manner and habit of one’s coping mechanisms help manage the stressors (that is, events that are related to one’s stress) in a better way, resulting in better management of not just stress but also one’s time and other resources.
If you’re looking to manage stress and your time in a more efficient way, you may need to look at the specific stressors impacting you in the present time, as the ‘stress’ can mean different things to different people, and what causes stress for one person may not cause it for another.
Fortunately, there is no dearth of strategies that would help you achieve the goals you’ve chosen for yourself in this regard. In case you’re facing difficulty in doing so by yourself, you could also choose to talk about your mental health to gain the support you need.
