Stories That Inspire Us welcomed to today’s podcast, Jessica Harrington. Jessica is a Speaker, and Stress Management Coach. She is the Owner / CEO of Journey to Yourself. Through her career and education, she realized that we all have a common issue - everyone, at some point or another, struggles with handling stress.
Jessica worked in Public Health for many years before she started her business and saw first hand, in many difficult situations, how stress affected the physical and emotional well-being. If we approach stress from a preventative standpoint, meaning implementing different strategies to help us cope through the process, we are able to work through stress much better than always taking a reactive measure.
Stress for many is often handled as “controlled chaos” and Jessica urges us not to put ourselves into a more stressful situation than we already are. It’s a tailwind type of situation as we are in the circle of trying to pinpoint the exact reason why we feel so stressed and yes; that causes more stress!
It’s okay to feel bad; it’s okay to acknowledge how we feel, now it’s time to implement actions to help us through that stress we are feeling. Stress manifests itself through our physical and emotional well-being. It’s about creating that balance through body, mind and our actions. Jessica offered some great tips:
*Take a breath; think of the main thing that you need right now.
*Talk to someone; whether it’s calling a friend or a family, etc.
(And so many more tips as well!)
Jessica offers 1:1 coaching as well as corporate workshops. Her approach is from a “preventative” standpoint taking bite size habits that create solution based outcomes. We sometimes cannot avoid stress (we all have experienced it) yet, there are still things that we can do to manage the stress and if we need to, there’s always Jessica’s approach to “Journey to Yourself” - everyone should have their own Journey and Jessica will help you get there!
