Stress is the #1 problem of our times. We live in a fast-paced, complex world and trying to keep up with it brings a lot of stress into our lives. In this article, you’ll discover 7 ways stress relief training will help you while you learn to help others. Yes, there's a certification at the end, but more important than that, are the ways your life will change.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know how to live a stress free life and help others, clearly define your relationships, remedy faulty thought patterns, deal with frustration factors, gain a lifestyle that will help you cope with stress, cultivate joy, and learn how to rest in the peace of God? All of these benefits can be yours.
Stress is identifiable by its symptoms which may include frequent frustration, lack of focus, headache-tension, substance abuse, among others. And often, people develop unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with these symptoms.
Aaron Roy of Relevant Magazine says, “Unhealthy coping mechanisms create an endless cycle of stress and self-medication.” So it can become a vicious circle.
People are looking for stress relief solutions everywhere and believers want them based on the Bible. If you’re passionate about helping others deal with stress, you’re in the right place.
I’ve always heard that stress was a killer but did not know the root causes of stress. From this training, I’ve learned the internal and external causes of stress...I can transfer the knowledge not only to myself but to other persons.

#1 Live a Stress Free Life and Help Others
Dealing with stress will leave you feeling joyful and in control of your life.
Heather Riggleman says, when stress dominates our lives, it’s not because we’ve lost the ability to trust God. It’s because we aren’t armed with a game plan to counter stress.
The word of God arms us with solutions for dealing with stress. God shows you how to deal with your stress and that of others. Our stress relief training will show you how.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” - 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
#2 Define Your Relationships
We live in a community and have to interact with people every day. Trying to please everyone will lead to burnout and stress because you can’t attend to the needs of every person.
Learn how to avoid others running your day, week or life. Stress management training will equip you with the tools to define or redefine your relationships.
“If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.” - Matthew 18:15
#3 Remedy Faulty Thought Patterns
Our minds face constant bombardment by thoughts of all kinds, some good and others evil. This is the reason we are to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ.
Dealing with faulty thought patterns requires a conscious effort to unlearn distorted thinking patterns and develop healthy ones. This topic is addressed in more depth within our specialized Stress Relief Coach certification program.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” - Philippians 4:8
#4 Deal With Frustration Factors
Frustration comes when you don’t get the results you expect in any situation. You feel a lack of control and that causes you anger, anxiety and fear. No matter how hard you try to get your desired outcome, you feel stuck and helpless.
Learning to look at a problem or situation from a different perspective can lead you to a solution that finally works. .
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” - Proverbs 19:21
#5 Acquire a Dietary Lifestyle That Helps You Cope With Stress
Stress makes many people turn to food for comfort. The short term pleasure of comfort food can fool you into believing it can give you stress relief.
There are healthy foods that help you cope with stress. The increase in intake of certain nutrients and vitamins will reduce your stress levels. When your body and mind are healthy, you will feel better and become better at helping others deal with their stress.
“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” - 1 Corinthians 10:31
"As a Pastor’s wife, I had convinced myself that I was stress free. And then I started having twitches but no. That’s not me because everything is perfect. We all live a stressful life and need to know how to make it stress free. And there’s biblical answers to that. So join us, this is a great program."
#6 Cultivate Joy as a Daily Practice
Life can bring with it unpleasant circumstances that steal your joy and happiness. Stressful situations leave you feeling discouraged, depleted and defeated. Yet this is not God’s will for you. True and lasting joy that comes from God is available to everyone.
Stress can block the flow of joy in your life if you let it. However, you can learn to take your thoughts captive so that your focus on thoughts that bring joy and peace. When you are full of joy, you inspire your clients to do what it takes to have the same joy in their lives.
“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.” - Romans 5:3
#7 Rest in the Peace of God
God knew we would face troubles in this world and they would leave us feeling stressed. Because of this, he offers us a peace that surpasses human understanding.
Dealing with the stress in your life allows the peace of God to fill your mind and heart. It’s not unusual to feel restless or stressed when others around you feel that way. But when you are at peace, you can remain calm as you listen to your clients and help them eliminate their stress.
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:6-7
