This site offers a wealth of information and resources on stress reduction. In order to help you feel supported (and avoid feeling overwhelmed) in your stress reduction efforts, I’ve compiled several different options to help you tailor your experience to your needs. This allows you to receive a little or a lot of information in convenient chunks, keeping you motivated so that stress reduction becomes a regular, simple part of your life.

Try a few or all of the following options, and you’ll find it easier to maintain a less stressed lifestyle.

Feedback Options

If you’re interested making your opinion part of the site, several fun options can allow you to make your voice heard:

  • Email Me With Questions / Ideas
    Have a great idea for an article that you would love to see on my site? You can message me through my Facebook page with your idea, and I’ll put it on my list of topics to cover. I try to write about issues that would be most helpful to people. When someone takes the time to write asking about a certain topic, that tells me that people are really passionate about it and want to know more.

On Your Computer

You can use computer options to stay connected to the site and get the most up-to-date information on stress reduction:

  • Bookmark
    If you find an article you like, just select ‘add bookmark’ on your browser so it’s easy to visit again.  This is a great option for when you find something you'd like to read, but just don't have time to digest it at the moment, or when you've skimmed something and know that you may want to read more, but don't have time right then.  It's also helpful to create a collection of articles that can help you when you need them. Also, if you find an article that's particularly useful, you can refer back to it again and again this way.
  • Social Media
    Using social media involvement for stress management is a great option because it reminds you about your stress management goals while you're relaxing or taking a break from work.  It also provides you with information that you can use in your life while you may already be looking for interesting things to read.  In other words, it you can get a steady stream of digestible information when and where you're already open to receiving it.

    There are several options for getting involved with stress management resources through social media.  You can get daily stress tips, some of which you can't get anywhere else, with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+.  (I'm most active on Facebook and Twitter, but I update in all places!)
  • Make Verywell Stress Management Your Home Page
    I add new articles often, and they show up first on my site's home page. Make Verywell's Stress Management page your startup screen, and you can see what’s new on the site as the changes occur. This is a great way to stay up-to-date, and keep stress management in the forefront of your awareness -- a great way to start your day.
     

Learn About Yourself

This site is dedicated to helping you overcome the negative effects of stress through fun and informative articles as well as other means. The following are some other options that can provide insight into your own personality and lifestyle to help you address the stress in a way that’s tailored to your specific situation:

  • Tests
    The stress tests on this site are geared toward helping you discover more about yourself, learn about specific topics related to stress, and find targeted information to help you make changes that will bring less stress to your life. And they’re fun to take, too.
  • Polls
    As I mentioned above, viewing the results of the polls is a fun tool for self-reflection, and lets you know what other people are thinking and experiencing, both of which can be educational.

    With all the options available for ongoing stress reduction support, you should be able to find the perfect combination for your needs. I look forward to 'seeing' more of you. Enjoy!
