Module 1: Stress
Total wellness takes three parts: mental, social and physical awareness. When we are mentally/emotionally aware we can manage stress, think clearly and feel and act in healthy ways. Social awareness includes our online and face-to-face interactions. The final component, physical awareness, includes our activity, nutrition, hygiene and self control. When we can blend these three areas in a balanced way, we are in total wellness mode.

While you can’t remove every single stressor from your life, it’s possible to manage stress and maintain your health. This is important because stress can cause mental fatigue, irritability, and insomnia.Since it’s not possible to eliminate every stressor, it’s important to find ways to cope with stress. Knowing the signs and stages of stress can help you take appropriate steps to manage your stress level and lower your risk of complications.It’s essential for your body to repair and recover during the resistance stage. If not, your risk for exhaustion rises. If you can’t eliminate a stressful event, regular exercise can help you cope and maintain a healthy stress level. Other techniques for stress management include yoga and deep-breathing exercises.
