Stress is the body’s reaction to a type of change – and a type of change that requires a physical, mental or emotional adjustment or response.
In today’s modern world stress is an unavoidable consequence of life.
But let’s also remember that stress is not always harmful and winning a race, or an election, can be just as stressful as losing.
We all need to find a stress level that permits us to perform optimally as we go through life.
Stress management is something that can help you to harness stress, so that it can work for you and make you more productive, rather than self-destructive.
Stress can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression, which in turn can lead to health problems such as headaches, upset stomach, rashes, insomnia, ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease, and strokes.
With the death of a loved one, the birth of a child, a job promotion, or a new relationship, we experience stress as we re-adjust our lives.
It has been found that most types of illnesses are related to unrelieved stress.
If you are experiencing symptoms of stress you have gone beyond your optimal stress level; you need to adjust the stress in your life and/or improve your ability to manage it.
