Stress Management

Start to manage your stress. Make the right choices and start to make the right moves to reduce your stress levels and find a happy medium between work and family life, to enhance your internal and external world. Start to see the possibilities of living in a new way that avoids the negative effects that long term stress can bring.

Long term stress can lead to:

Damaged relationships to the point of destruction. Developing major mental health problems like depression and anxiety problems. Can lead to people developing addictions. It can affect your physical health increasing the risks of hart disease, stomach and bowel problems and many other physical illnesses. Many people can manage their stress more effectively, it can be as simple as just using meditation and exercising more, or include complex life changes and behavioural changes.

Stress is?

Stress is the physical response to situations in life that can be seen as a threat, from trying to achieve deadlines at work, or dealing with financial problems to going to the dentist. When we feel stressed our body reacts as if it is under physical threat and triggers our fight or flight response. This physical response will release substances like adrenalin and other chemicals into the body, these will increase our reaction time and prepare the body for fight or flight, the affect is that we get a boost of energy and can work faster, think faster and react faster, but there is a downside, the body cannot sustain this strain for long periods of time, it is fine over the short term, but the long term affects can be detrimental and accumulate over time.    Stress can help us to be more focused at many types of tasks, like sport or work-based performance and quite often it can help motivate us, but too much stress for long periods can increase our levels of anxiety leading to physical and emotional problems. Under high levels of stress, relationships both at home and in work can be put under pressure to the point they breakdown, people can also become confused, absent minded, short tempered and moody, they can lose the ability to switch off and slow down, often being constantly on the go.

Coping with stress

One way to help is by eating a well-balanced diet, This help us by supplying our physical needs giving us the minerals and nutrients that will help us cope in times of stress, another way to help ourselves is exercising to keep fit, if you're feeling fit you tend to have a better outlook on life and have more reserves of energy when you need it, it also helps our recovery times after any physical activity. People who smoke will place more stress the body, this is because processing the toxic chemicals in our system means that the body has to do more work and this raises the internal stress levels on average by about 10%, and this will have an effect on how we feel, another problem with smoking is that stress normally increases the amount people smoke. Smoking recreational drugs is another way people try to self-medicate, but this also can create an even bigger issue over time leading to addiction and mental health problems. Alcohol is enjoyed in moderation by many people without ill effects, but if you combine stress and anxiety with alcohol it can lead to a spiralling problem that can end in alcohol dependence, lots of people like a drink as it helps us socialise and relax, but if we use it to combat stress we can find that with more stress we need more drink, alcohols effects are reduced over time as the body becomes used to it, and more alcohol is needed to maintain the effect, until the alcohol becomes a much bigger problem. Smoking, using drugs and drinking too much alcohol, will have a negative impact on how you deal with stress and anxiety, by reducing or stopping bad choices and making healthy changes in your life style, you may help your body cope in times of stress, that in turn will help you cope emotionally.  Food can play an important role in how some people cope with stress, eating food can be very satisfying and enjoyable helping, but this can be used as a distraction from difficult or sad feelings, if we use food to make us feel better that can lead to a self-destructive way of coping that can make people feel even worse about themselves, or they can become overweight and develop physical issues like high blood pressure and diabetes.

Not dealing with stress in a healthy way can lead to the pressure building to a point that leads to an implosion or explosion or what some people call a meltdown and end up as a depressive or aggressive episode. We can have a wide range of reactions to extremes of stress from violent out bursts to quietly drinking our life away, depression and other mental and physical problems can manifest themselves in our life while under long term pressure making life even harder.

Lack of control
