Stress Management & Wellness

Share

Stress is the body’s response to any kind of demand or threat that disturbs a person’s physical and/or mental balance. When you feel endangered, the nervous system reacts by releasing a large quantity of stress hormones including adrenaline and cortisol which prepare the body for emergency action. Because of this, an individual’s heart rate increases, muscles tighten, blood pressure rises, breath quickens, and the senses ultimately become sharper.

Healthy levels of stress can help us defend ourselves at a time of danger and boost our reaction time to avoid danger when needed but when stress accumulates and reaches levels beyond the normal comfort zone, stress can stop being helpful and begin to cause major complications to both an individual’s mind and body.

Unhealthy levels of stress commonly cause pain and aches of various types, digestive problems, sleep problems, weight problems, depression, and in more serious cases, heart disease, auto-immune diseases, and skin conditions such as eczema. Eliminating stress entirely is the best solution for avoiding these types of complications but while the process of doing so can occur gradually and take time, reducing the amounts of stress in the body can help decrease its effects on the body.

First, closing your eyes, take 10 deep breaths while focusing on inhaling and exhaling. This process can help slowly relax the body. Then, when there’s a high concentration of stress, it’s essential to avoid consuming sugars altogether as it can create mood swings. Then, it’s often recommended to take part in some form of physical activity every day. From taking a walk to participating in an exercise class, staying active can also help reduce the levels of stress in your body. And finally, take some time for yourself to stop using your media devices and social media to enjoy some quiet time with your loved ones, focusing on what you’ve achieved and setting up new goals for the future.

Stress affects a large majority of the population. While healthy levels of stress can help a person get through a difficult test or drive others to perform to their fullest abilities, unhealthy levels of stress can begin to harm the body rather than help. Eliminating stress is important for anyone and while often difficult, decreasing those levels of stress can be achieved through simple stress management procedures.
