Let’s be real--rates of anxiety and depression are at an all-time high and we have seen an increase of stress since the pandemic.
Our ability to handle difficult situations and stress overall is lower than it was, which is why it’s so important to a.) talk about it and b.) find ways to manage our stress better.
As I think about Stress Awareness Month, I couldn’t talk about how to handle stress without talking about the Enneagram. The Enneagram is a personality tool that has transformed the way that I understand, interact and communicate in both personal and professional relationships.
Personally, as a Type 8, my expectations of myself and others are ridiculously high. My nightstand is full of self-help books and I have coaches in all the areas that I want to be better.
My relationships sometimes suffer because I always expect more or better, never accepting someone's personal best. It is a daily struggle to remind myself that everyone in my life is doing their best, and I need the love and companionship to meet them there without my expectations.
Because of everything I’ve learned and the ways I’ve grown, I want to shout it from the rooftops so you can all benefit from it as well.
I know that we all manage stress in unique ways, but that our personality definitely guides what drives it. Managing stress in a healthy way is something we all aim to do so we first need to talk about what causes stress for each Type:
Type 1: Moral Perfectionist
Type 2: Supportive Advisor
Type 3: Successful Achiever
Type 4: Romantic Individualist
Type 5: Investigative Thinker
Type 6: Loyal Guardian
Type 7: Entertaining Optimist
Type 8: Protective Challenger
Type 9: Peaceful Mediator
