When Does Stress Become Harmful to Performance?
Stress is a natural mental and physical reaction to life experiences. We all experience it from time to time, but for the most part, our daily lives do not consist of life experiences that cause significant amounts of stress. Being unaware of stress management practices can and will take a mental and physical toll. This typically results in sickness or lack of motivation within daily life tasks, in turn leaving you feeling like the world is crashing down on you. Add in an extreme life change, such as a divorce and the end results are never good.
Stress Management Within Mediation
Within the mediation process, it can become difficult to express how you may be feeling or that you may need to try a different method of progressing your case. You may just find that you need more time to process the daily life changes occurring. I could go on and on about the many reasons clients may be feeling overwhelmed or stressed at any time in their case. What is important is acknowledging that you are not alone. In moments of high stress or feeling defeated, remember to lean on the support systems not only in your personal life but here at the firm as well.

We want our clients to feel supported and free to express how the process may or may not be working for them. If at any point in your case you feel that you just need someone to talk to or to further explain something that may be causing confusion, reach out. We will always do our best to provide the support you are looking for. In the event that Anthony or myself are unable to assist with your needs, we will work with you to try and obtain the support that you need.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to make sure that you have support or reach out whenever you feel it is needed. There are so many times when we tend to feel like we are strong enough to handle certain battles alone. The divorce process is not one of those battles we should face alone. Having a strong support system can only make you stronger than if you were to stand alone. In the moments when you feel at your lowest the people in your corner will always be there for you and will only help to lift you up if they know that is what you need.
The main takeaway that I hope you get from this article is that it is okay not to be okay. It is okay to let others know the ways in which you may be uncomfortable. In the moments that we are not okay, we need to remember the resources and people in our lives that help to facilitate support and understanding. It is in these moments we can reflect and lean on that support, in turn making daily struggles seem less daunting. West Coast Family Mediation Center prioritizes that you feel heard.
