Dealing with stress more effectively

How do you react under pressure? Which signals do you recognize?

We all have developed our own ways of coping successfully with stressful situations. To protect ourselves and hide our insecurity. Some might react irritated or sarcastic in an exciting situation, where others remains too nice or tries to hide their discomfort by giggling nervously or talking too quickly.

To discover the reactions to stressful situations of your clients, coachees, participants, employees, or yourself in a very accessible way, we have developed the coaching cards; Stress! Do you recognize the signs?. Using the 50 beautifully illustrated coaching cards enables you to quickly identify your protection mechanisms. Use of the provided exercise included in the card deck, or with the help of the exercises you’ll find here on the website to get started more effectively with stressful situations.

Getting the chills

Have you ever heard someone describe an event that “gave them the chills?” Perhaps it’s the idea of making a critical mistake or getting on the wrong side of a very scary boss. Or even what could happen if you missed a crucial deadline!

While the expression is well known, anxiety is not the first thing most people think of when they start to feel cold for no reason. But chills can be a very common sign of stress, so it’s good to stop and think about what might be causing you to shiver.

If you’ve ever experienced cold hands and feet or a shiver down your spine when you’re feeling anxious, read on to find out whether stress is the culprit for you. This blog will unpack how anxiety can leave you feeling chilly when the sun’s blazing and what you can do to feel better.
