How to Handle Stress in the Moment


  • Identify what your physiological signs of stress are so you can work to alleviate the tension
  • Counteract stressful situations by taking deep breaths
  • Find someone whose judgment you trust who can listen and provide counsel


  • Forget the reason you feel stressed in the first place — you are being asked to do something important and you want to succeed
  • Let the negative voice in your head spiral out of control — talk to yourself in a logical, gentle tone
  • Project your stress onto others — speak in a calm, controlled way and others will too
