WHAT TO EXPECT
Although life provides numerous demands that can prove difficult to handle, stress management provides a number of ways to manage anxiety and maintain overall well-being. Many practical stress management techniques are available, some for use by health professionals and others, for self-help, which may help an individual reduce their levels of stress, provide positive feelings of control over one's life and promote general well-being.
The process of stress management is named as one of the keys to a happy and successful life in modern society. Stress management has physiological and immune benefits. Positive outcomes are observed using a combination of non-drug interventions: treatment of anger or hostility, autogenic training, talking therapy (around relationship or existential issues), biofeedback and cognitive therapy for anxiety or clinical depression
