Coping with the stress that results from difficult life events requires understanding, sensitivity,
acceptance, and patience. When these events endure over an
extended period of time and the stress becomes cumulative
it is even more important to take steps to reduce the effects
of this cumulative stress. When choosing stress reduction
techniques it is important that individual choose what is
right for him or her. Each person handles stress differently.
It is important not to judge individuals about the methods
they choose or force them to choose particular strategies.
As long as the stress reduction strategies chosen offer the
individual comfort and relief without any harmful effects
they are appropriate choices for managing the stressful situation.
