be resilient

change how you think about stress

How you respond to stress may be more important than the cause of the stress itself.

A healthy emotional life doesn't affect just the way you feel; it can also positively affect your relationships with family, friends and co-workers. Likewise, emotional difficulties can make it tough to get through even the simplest daily routine, much less the rigors of your job and family life. The resources, plans and programs below are available to help you manage stress and find ways to become more resilient in the face of life's challenges.

is stress putting your heart at risk? 

Stress is one of the six most common risk factors for cardiovascular disease. In response to stress, your body automatically increases blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, metabolism, and blood flow to your muscles. This response is intended to help your body react effectively to a high-pressure situation. But when you are constantly reacting to stressful situations without making adjustments to counter the effects, the pressure can threaten your health and emotional well-being. Chevron has partnered with WebMD® to offer the Healthy Heart Program to eligible employees. By participating in this program you can understand if stress is putting your health at risk, create a plan to reduce stress, work with a health coach, and use a variety of online tools and resources that are personalized to you. To get started, take the health questionnaire.
