Some may ask what do I know about the subject of Stress Management? I do not have a doctorate in psychology. There are no cool titles or letters before or after my name. No Dr. Eidson or Christy Eidson, Ph.D. I’m just your average Joe. I finally found ways to reduce my stress, but it took a lot of work. I am experiencing the lowest level of stress that I have felt in years.
I may be a comedian, but this is a very serious topic to me, and one that we see affecting most of us on a daily basis. It is a perfect topic for a comedian to cover because, as a group, most comedians are often affected by anxiety and depression. We use humor as a coping mechanism in dealing with stress in our search for happiness. We search and search for exterior elements to make us happy, but that won’t happen, at least not for the long-run. True happiness comes from within.
I have been doing standup for over 15 years. I have been suffering from anxiety and depression for twice as long. I have been suffering from chronic insomnia for the better part of the past decade. It has taken me half of my life of trial and error to figure out what works for me to cope.
With this course, I will help you reduce stress while seeing your life in a new light. You will be able to define stress and identify stressors, discover helpful and effective stress management techniques that have been proven to work. I haven’t selected these techniques flippantly. They have worked for me, but why? I started researching the science behind each one and share it with you here.
In these lessons, I may mention pop culture references to make my points. I think it makes the material more relatable. For instance, I will be mentioning the Bill Murray movie, “What About Bob”. In the movie, Bob had to learn to cope with his anxiety by not get overwhelmed with how monumental the task was, but instead by taking baby steps to achieve his goals. He used baby steps to make changes in his life and not become crippled by his fear.
I am not happy one hundred percent of the time, but I have learned various ways of coping with the negatives when they pop up. I have spent half of my life suffering from depression and anxiety. I have lost jobs because of it, shut people out because of it, and even lost my home because of it. But I have come out on the other side. I have found purpose in my life, started a business that fulfills me, and found joy in the small things. I have learned to stay in the moment and really enjoy the here and now.
