Ten Characteristics of Good Stress Managers

As we get ready to start another school year we are faced with things that can interrupt our lives and cause distress. We are trying to restart routines. Our children are starting music lessons, dance, sports or other activities. All of these things can cause challenges in our lives. People who manage their stress well tend to have similar characteristics. Below are 10 characteristics of a good stress manager. This is not a list of all the characteristics or good stress managers. Good stress managers may not have all of these characteristics but they understand which methods work for them.

Good stress managers:

  • Are physically active- We should all be getting 30-60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity 3 to 5 times per week.
  • Eat a healthy diet- We should be eating as whole and natural as possible.
  • Get adequate rest every day- Adults need 6-8 hours of sleep per day. A short nap can be beneficial as well.
  • Schedule daily time to unwind, relax, and evaluate the day’s activities.
  • Understand their own feelings and accept their limitations.
  • Recognize and regulate stressors within their capabilities.
  • Learn from previous mistakes.
  • Enjoy life despite occasional disappointments and frustrations.
  • Give themselves freely to others.
  • Have a deep meaningful life.

Remember to take some time for yourself everyday. We often get caught up taking care of our families and forget that we better serve our families when we take time for ourselves. The first 3 items on the list are really important. make sure you are being physically active, eating well, and getting enough sleep.
