How to Manage Stress?

Stress- you hear this word everywhere these days; from senior citizens to adults to kids complain of stress. Well, what is stress? Simply put, stress is the reaction of the body to everyday pressure and tension. Besides, it gives a feel of being unhealthy all the times.

Symptoms of Stress

Obviously stress affects the emotions first and causes psychological symptoms. Early symptoms of stress may include anxiousness, distraction, nervousness, excessive worry, changes in sleep patterns, irritability, anger, depression, intolerance, thought of hurting self or others, palpitation and internal pressure.

These emotional situations slowly start affecting a person’s external appearance. The person affected may seem self-absorbed, distracted, angry or irritable, and unusually nervous or anxious.

Now, as the level of stress ascends or if it lasts for a longer period of time, the individual may start experiencing severe physical symptoms like: headaches, excessive fatigue, nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea, tachycardia, chest pain, high blood pressure, flushing or dizziness, shortness of breath, restlessness, choking sensation or hyperventilation.

Causes of Stress

Stress is usually caused by any kind of emotional or physical stimulus or situation. Most often, people speak of varied types of stress like relationship stress, work stress, or parenting stress. There are a few kinds of stress that are related to particular stages of life such as pregnancy, ageing, teen years, menopausal transition and the like. In fact, even children are affected by stress in the contemporary world.

Risk factors contributing to uncontrollable stress include medical illness, lack of social support networks, social and financial problems and family history of family discord or stress.

On top of this, our lifestyle and food habits make our nerves week from both structural as well as functional point of view. The safest way of coming out of such a situation is to nourish our nervous health so that it responds constructively to otherwise difficult situation in life.

Treatment for Stress

Well, yes. Once you start feeling stressed, It is always ideal to take action instantly – the sooner, the better.

There can be three groups of effected people –

Group 1 – Stress is apparently without a reason.
Group 2 – Stress is because of an unidentified reason
Group 3 – Stressed for known reasons, but not able to resolve.

Our study and research have found that people belonging to Group 1 have weak nervous system. The people from Group 2 are also unable to exactly identify the reasons for stress because of weak nervous system. The people belonging to Group 3 are not able to resolve it even after knowing the root cause – again because of weak nervous system
