Review

In reviewing this Managing Stress for Mental Fitness Program, it is useful to review the main points that have been made.

#1 Understand that stress and stressful situations are all around us. Each individual has an optimum stress level that acts as motivation to accomplish goals. Unrelieved stress, however, has physical and mental effects that can be difficult to fix.
#2 Manage stress by learning your individual optimum level of stress. It is important to have both physical and mental outlets for stress, including a regular exercise program, a support group of friends and/or co-workers, and adequate rest and nutrition.
#3 Most people need help to understand themselves and others. Finding ways to make contacts meaningful and productive, rather than negative and destructive, is an essential aspect of achieving and maintaining mental fitness.
#4 Learn to develop the principles of good mental health. For this to happen, you must recognize, understand and express your emotions. People with problems communicating often need extra help with this.
#5 It is important to maintain mental fitness. Work to improve yourself by learning, keep a positive attitude, challenge yourself and take care of your health. Value your uniqueness and build up your self-confidence.
