Since stress activates the body's defense mechanism, blood is frequently drawn away from the extremities and to the torso when a stress attack occurs. Digital thermometers (digital because they measure finger temperature) can be used to detect a person's level of stress. Note that the actual temperature is not the most important characteristic, but rather the change in temperature.
Using this knowledge has proven useful in designing treatment for prevention and control of stress attacks. This technique was pioneered by Dr. Claudio Zapata.
Some techniques of time management may help a person to control stress.
1.becoming more organized and reducing the generation of clutter
2.setting priorities can help reduce anxiety
3.using a "to do" list of tasks that a person needs to complete can give a person a sense of control and accomplishment
