A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Stress Management’.
Before we look at what stress management is, allow me to state what ‘stress’ means. Google defines it to be “a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances.”
Stress happens to be a term all of us are, regrettably enough, well acquainted with. However, stress is a dangerous phenomenon that will adversely affect our life and hence is of need to be managed in order to live a happy life.
Wikipedia defines the term stress management as follows: “Stress management is a wide spectrum of techniques and psychotherapies aimed at controlling a person’s level of stress, especially chronic stress, usually for the purpose of improving everyday functioning.”
Simple stress management techniques include meditation, yoga, and exercise. Laughing therapy is also a popular form of therapy undertaken today, along with acupuncture and massage.
