Why do we get stressed?
Everyone experiences stress, but many don’t know how to manage it, meanwhile, unmanaged stress can have devastating effects some of which will be discussed below.
When major life stressors come up, it is important to handle them properly to avoid getting hurt. A questionnaire revealed that the top five most stressful life events are: death of a loved one, divorce, moving, major illness or injury, and job loss.
There is a very thin line between stress management and health management. After experiencing stressful life events, people often break down and fall ill. That is because accumulated stress can aggravate health challenges and other issues; for example, it may affect digestive health, inflammation, the immune system, bone density, sexual health, sleep, anxiety, etc. If you aren’t careful, stress may amplify ailments that were under control before.
Stress is normal but can be monitored.
It’s normal to feel stressed sometimes, but if you always feel under pressure, it can have negative impacts on your mind and body. This is because stress is supposed to be a short-term response to tension and not a constant state of being.
How does stress impact you?
Stress has a bigger impact on your health than you might realize. Stress plays a major role in how your body functions. It can affect your mood, your immune system, your neurotransmitters, and have a host of effects on your mental, physical, and emotional health. Stress can impact your brain all on its own, but it is worse when you don’t take care of your health.
Has your stress resulted in any of the side effects or symptoms of unmanaged stress that includes headaches, digestive problems, sleep issues, irritability, decreased productivity, problems with memory or with concentration, weight gain or loss, and increased blood pressure or heart rate?
Are you finding it hard to eat or stick to a diet? Stress can make it harder to stick to a diet or exercise routine, and often distracts people from their daily meditation regimens.
Did you know insomnia, under or overeating, irritability, and depression can all be triggered by stress, and these conditions then make illnesses and chronic diseases even worse? Stress can prolong certain diseases and conditions for years.
Additionally, Stress can contribute to several mental and emotional disorders including anxiety, phobias, and panic attacks. Emotional stress can make it difficult to focus, make decisions, think things through, or remember things. Stress may also cause irritability, making you easily frustrated and impatient with others, and can even contribute to depression, anger, feelings of insecurity, and relationship conflicts.
For some, they might lead to long-term problems such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, which is a condition of persistent mental and emotional stress.
Stress is not all bad if you manage it.
Hold on! Stress is not all bad if managed properly. Otherwise, what can you say about people who scaled difficult periods and experienced growth afterward? This phenomenon has even caught the attention of professionals and is now called Post-Traumatic Growth. How is it that these individuals come through the trauma with a positive response? And even more importantly, how can more of us experience this? That is where stress management and utilization come in.
