Three A’s of Christian Stress Management
Having the proper tools can help you manage stress and thereby eliminate the problems that come along with stress. Avoiding, altering, and adapting to stress are helpful ways to handle pressures.
Avoiding Your Stress – Once you realize what causes you stress (see my article on Christian Stress Management: 3 More Tips to Handle Pressure for more information) you need to use all that you know to avoid it.Some things that will help you avoid stress are prayer, try to control your environment, stay away from negative people, and have a healthy lifestyle.
It is not always easy for you to avoid stress, but when you can’t, you may need to try another tool that will help you handle pressure. The second A is altering stressful situations.
Altering Your Stressful Situations – When confronted with pressures that causes you stress, you may not be able to avoid them all the time, but you can try doing the following:
- Learn to express your feelings in a respectful way
- Assert yourself honestly
- Try to compromise
- Use your time wisely
Learning to adapt to your situation will help you cope better. We are tempted to give into our stress, but remember that God is able to deliver you, when it is unbearable (I Cor. 10:13). Try to refocus (view a situation from all angles and see the "big picture") and stay positive.
Accepting Your Stressful Situation – There will be times when your stress can not be avoided or altered. At this time you have to accept your stressful situation. There is no one that can control everything in their life.
Practicing proper ways to handle pressures will help you see the bright side of a situation, learn to share with others you trust, and also learn to forgive people who may cause you stress.
