Stress management is not a major course taught in high school, college, or universities. Unless, of course, you are studying some form of health science. You may get an introductory course post secondary however, in some cases people may argue that it is reactive rather than preventative learning.
Here is why we think so.
We are constantly encountering moments that are stress related. Now, there are certain people and personalities that are well equipped to manage and deal with stress. Needless to say, there are far more people who simply cannot cope with any varying amounts of stress levels.
So what can we do to help those who are unable to process stress well?
We need to focus on preventative measures or at least educate our citizens in recognizing the triggers that cause them stress and how they can begin to manage it.
This should happen as early as grade school, when most students begin the third grade. These trainings should continue well throughout high school and into post secondary where the pupils will begin to develop an awareness for specified career focused and leadership stress management techniques.
Of course these points are purely based on opinion. We haven’t made the time to research the subject and bring out the factual evidence that some may need in order to agree. However, in the book, Lead and Influence, we intersect with a concept that discuss the notion of leadership and balancing the stresses that come with. Now, judging by your experiences in life, the people you have encountered, the stress levels you have felt. Do you think there would be any loss in giving the opinions express above a try?
