Isnít it difficult trying to manage something when you are not really sure what it is you are trying to manage?

It is true that we all need some stress in our lives to help us function; It is also true that some people perform better when they feel under stress. The difficulty arises when there is no end to the stress, when there is no release.

Stress management helps you identify the main causes of your stress accurately (sometimes we feel that something is causing us stress when in fact it is something totally different), and once these have been identified we can decide what we can do, first of all to minimise the stress, and then to tackle the resulting physical and emotional symptoms.
