Stress management by increasing the sense of coherence – SOC

Stress management is important in these times and can be acieved by increasing the sense of coherence. Sense of coherence, also called SOC, is a concept developed by Antonovsky. More specifically, he has researched the links among health, stress and various coping strategies that people often use. Sense of coherence distinguishes those who manage to handle stressful life situations with less affected well-being. more importantly, this is characterized by the extent to which one has a pervasive, lasting and dynamic belief that stressful situations are:
1) understandable
2) manageable
3) meaningful
