8 Ways Mental Health Experts Prepare for High-Stress Days

Stress is a natural and very normal part of everyday life. But some days are inherently more stressful than others: you have a job interview, you know your schedule is going to be busy, you have a crowd of guests for a holiday meal, you get the idea.

And the current backdrop of negative global news (inflation, war, political strife and climate change) has put Americans’ daily stress levels at alarming levels, according to survey data.

“Many of us find ourselves overwhelmed and stressed by our increasing tasks and responsibilities in life; juggling heavy workloads, household chores and childcare responsibilities,” says Monica Vermani, PsyD, a clinical psychologist in Toronto and author of Deeper Well-Being: Overcoming Stress, Mood, Anxiety and Trauma.

Often, it’s when we take on the stress of others and let their stress overwhelm us that we begin to feel out of control, adds Gail Saltz, MD, clinical associate professor of psychiatry at NY Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell School of Medicine in New York. and the host of How can I help? iHeartRadio podcast.
