Stress Management Resources
While work-life balance is an admirable goal, for most faculty members “balance” rarely occurs and, when it does, it is fragile and temporary. The life of a faculty member is filled with pressures and deadlines, and lacks the predictability of many other professions. While stress cannot be entirely eliminated, the resources in this section are designed to get faculty members started in the long-term process of recognizing and addressing stress to make it manageable. The following resources are a useful place to begin…
The American Psychological Association has extensive resources on stress and stress management.
Helpguide.org provides extensive resources for stress management.
You are not alone – stress and burnout statistics show that stress is an extremely common problem.
