Stress Management and Emotional Health

A famous quote says– “never stress over what you can’t control”

Stress is what you sense when you have to tackle more than you’re used to. Your body retorts exactly like you’re in threat when you’re in stress. It intensifies the pulse rate, produce hormones that make you sweat, the heart beats fastens, you become anxious, you breathe faster and there’s a burst of energy in the body.

In the midst of all the rush and hectic life, its natural to exert. Whether it’s a 9-5 desk job, or a business to handle, from having responsibilities to fulfilling the needs of the family, stressing out can be ordinary. Some stress is essential too. It can encourage you if you need to work hard and quickly. For example, if you want to finish a task on a given deadline, a little stress can help you complete that task quickly, else you’ll be more relaxed.

But if you stress too much and for too long, it can be sickening.

Stress can really become a disease difficult to fight off and it can lead to:

  1. Lower presence of mind
  2. Tensity
  3. Depression
  4. Melancholy

Stress affects your inter and intra personal relationships, your traditional lifestyle. It may seem a stressful situation cannot be dodged, but that’s not completely true.

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT STRESS?

Well, it is possible to reduce stress! You need to keep in check:

  1. Self awareness. Knowing about the reason of stress.
  2. Look for stress reducing methods. It’s more of a subjective and personal way.
