Working life can be seen as a series of problems or demands which require adaptation from us. To be effective to cope with these demands, we already have a set of skills present in our own arsenal that can be associated with internal and external resources. Examples of our resources could be a well-developed problem solving technique or a regular practice of meditation. Examples of resources are money or collaborators who can help us.
When demands are greater than our skills or resources, we will feel stressed; but we can also feel stress because of boredom or routine.
The response we make to a stressful situation will be affected by our view of it. The way we think is able to change the way we cope; both in a more effective or a less effective manner.
In this short approach, we will note that coping capacities must be trained and are fairly long process to obtain.
