Surfing Your Stress to Success Program Offers a New Way of Dealing with Stress
Date:3/23/2009

HALLOWELL, Maine, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Kevin Polk, a clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience in stress management is offering a new web program and DVD for stress management. The program is based on Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT). It emphasizes decreasing struggling with stress and increasing valued living. Dr. Polk points out that while traditional stress management techniques such as deep breathing and thinking differently about stress can be effective, in times like these, high stress can occur with the best stress management in place; sometimes it's better to 'Surf the Stress.'

The 'Surfing Your Stress' program consists of three main components: 1) Carefully noticing what is going on in the body, mind and world in the present moment, 2) Identifying the ways you struggle stress, and 3) Identifying valued life directions that you want to take action toward. For example, a person might learn that he or she struggles with high workplace stress by avoiding coworkers, but the person has also recognized that work is a valued activity. The person also realizes that the whole company is under high stress and relaxation only goes so far. By realizing work is of very high value the person can choose to have the stress (surf it) and go ahead and interact with coworkers.

Dr. Polk points out that his 'Surfing Your Stress' program can take a bit of practice, but his experience with over one thousand people has been that they have fun with the process. As Dr. Polk says, "Stress is no longer the enemy. It's just a natural part of us that we all take along for the ride anyway. By making it into something to 'surf', it frees us up and allows us to be more flexible as we go from choice to choice."

Research has shown ACT to be an effective workplace stress intervention. ACT focuses on people accepting internal things like stress rather than struggling with them. This frees up mental resources
