Sturgeon Bay Psychologist Dr. Dennis White says stress management can be controlled by challenging your own thinking. He says that we are consistently talking to ourselves in our heads. Our thoughts can be a mixture of rational and irrational ones.
Dr. White recommends challenging your thoughts when they may not be rational, thus lowering the heat and reducing emotional pressures. Choosing safer options when making decisions and not reacting impulsively can improve your wellbeing and lessen regrets.
