This session introduces important information on understanding just what stress is and how it can affect our bodies. Learning to identify situations that can be stressful is the first step, followed by understanding how different stressors call for different stress management strategies. One particularly important issue in managing the stress that comes from having a chronic illness is sleep. The Children’s Health and Illness Recovery Program (CHIRP) introduces the importance of improving sleep by learning healthy sleep hygiene practices and monitoring this with the help of the Sleep Log. Improvement in sleep hygiene and physical activity are emphasized as important building blocks of CHIRP.
