Everyday more people describe their lives as increasingly hectic and stressful. Health educators are a significant source of information to help people cope with stress. Health educators must prepare to respond to questions about stress in a school, community, or worksite setting. Helping consumers limit the harmful effects of stress is important so they can maintain a healthy qualify of life. Based on experiences in providing stress management workshops for caregivers, this commentary is written to share with health educators some ideas about which stress management techniques would be helpful to consumers in alleviating some of their stress, given only a short period of time in which to teach consumers these approaches.
