What is Stress ?

Being under pressure is considered a normal part of life. It can be used constructively, as you may feel more energized and get things done faster. However, if you often become overwhelmed by stress, these feelings could be a start to a problem for you.

Symptoms of Stress

Our body’s response to stress is automatic. When stressed, hormones flood the body, thereby boosting energy, and helping one cope with the stress. That’s less likely now because people face multiple challenges every day, associated with work and family. Regardless of the source of the stress, the body reacts in the same way every time. Stress can then have an impact by creating minor health issues- like a stomach-ache, or major issues like a sudden breakdown. Sudden emotional distresses, especially anger, can trigger heart attacks, irregular heartbeat and even death in some cases.

Most people do not see signs of the heart weakening, or excessive stress, until it gets worse. When stress interferes with your daily life for an extended period of time, it gradually takes a toll on the body and mind, leading to fatigue, inability to concentrate, and irritable mood. Chronic stress can cause disease, either because of changes in the body or because of the overeating, smoking, and other high-risk behaviors people use to cope with stress.

Excessive stress is associated with increased risk of coronary artery disease. Depression and low levels of social support also increase risk for cardiovascular disease. When these types of illnesses occur, stress can make it harder to recover.

Treatment for Stress

Identifying the cause of stress is the first step in dealing with it. People who fixate on the stressor, instead of taking action, are less likely to actually manage the situation. Avoid habits like procrastination or poor time-management skills, which put people in needlessly stressful situations. Talk to people who can help you get out of such situations.

Pay attention to what makes one get stressed. If you feel stressed on a regular basis, try managing daily tasks rather than bigger challenges. Pose some tough, but realistic, problems to see if you get nervous when trying to find a solution. If so, then you are likely to get stressed when actual problems arise on the job. Most people get stressed by work at some point. People who claim they never get stressed might take problems too lightly.
