Functional Stress Hardiness

In today’s world, most emergency services personnel have a very good understanding of functional fitness and the training that is required to physically do their jobs well. The physical strain is great, and these emergency services personnel have learned to train their muscles to do their everyday activities safely and efficiently. Stress Hardiness is about training the mind and spirit to deal with the typical stress reactions that come from an individual’s occupational and personal stress. This stress is unique to everyone – one size does not fit all. Know your stress weakness and train for stress hardiness! Learn to identify the causes of your individual stress reactions, what your typical stress reactions are, and most importantly, how to mitigate the impact of those stress reactions by training in advance of the critical moment to retain some stress hardiness during the crisis. Learn some exercises to develop stress hardiness just as one would learn physical exercises to develop physical fitness. Stress management after the fact is not enough – we must increase our stress hardiness so there’s less distress to manage!
