Recently, my 15-year-old son asked, "What are some tools I can use to not feel stressed?" I was stunned. What struck me first was the fact that he had the self-awareness to identify his own anxiety. What really impressed me, though, was his ability to ask for help in order to alleviate his discomfort.
My son's question got me thinking about my own stressful experiences, and how I've learned to deal with them.
