In today’s world, no one is immune to stress. Everyone is struggling to reach somewhere, everyone is going through different challenges, people have strong competitors in business and at work, similarly there are relationship problems, financial problems, family issues, and unattainable goals, lost dreams, long to-do lists and many more factors which can make us stressed out.
Stress can be neutral, normal or elevated. Neutral stress is a little stress and it is okay, normal stress is actually beneficial; it helps you in meeting your deadlines, while elevated stress or too much stress can wear you down and make you sick, both mentally and physically.
So what is stress?
Stress is the body reaction to a harmful stimulus which can be real or perceived. Stress can disturb both the physical and mental equilibrium. For example, while learning karate your first response to punches and kicks is to defend yourself because you don’t want to get hurt but over time you learn to attack. What happens is a chemical reaction occurs when we feel in danger that reaction causes to act in a certain way. This is the stress response. During stress response heartbeat increases, breathing quickens, muscles tighten and blood pressure rises, which prepares the body for an action. So far stress seems like a good thing right?
Yes stress in small amount is good; it helps in accomplishing tasks and prevents from dangers like getting hit by a car. However, when stress exceeds due to any reasons which can vary from person to person it deteriorates the overall health. You can clearly observe physical, emotional and behavioral symptoms. These include sleep disturbances like insomnia or sleeping too much, muscle tension, muscle aches, headache, gastrointestinal problems, fatigue, nervousness, anxiety, changes in eating habits; overeating or under eating leading to weight gain or loss, loss of enthusiasm or energy, mood swings like irritability and depression. In fact people under stress engage in unhealthy behaviors, such as excessive use or abuse of alcohol and drugs, cigarette smoking, and making poor exercise and nutritional choices.
Now, we know that stress exists in our daily life and sometimes it affect us adversely. We should look at the measures to prevent elevated stress. Recognizing the cause of stress is very important for its treatment. However it’s not that easy to identify the cause of stress. The idea is to fight the elevated stress.
1) First thing that comes to mind for fighting stress is to do exercise for an hour once or twice daily.
2) Along with that meditate or choose any relaxation technique for 30 minutes once or twice daily.
3) Eliminate drug abuse like alcohol or cigarettes. Drugs helps in further elevating the stress levels.
4) If your physician has given you stress controlling medicines, take each dose with strict guidance.
5) Welcome talks about social gatherings and holiday celebrations. Avoid anything that stresses you out like discussing work during lunch break.
