Stress is our body’s way of reacting to any condition which it deems as threatening by activating the sympathetic nervous system which releases an abundance of stress hormones. Stress within the comfort zone is not harmful as it can push us to meet our challenges.
But, when stress becomes overwhelming we become vulnerable to a host of ailments which may include raising of our blood pressure, increased risk of a stroke or a heart attack, a suppressed immune system and a whole host of mental and emotional disorders. It is for these very reasons that we need to avoid and learn how to manage stress.
Stress management involves taking control of your life and making positive lifestyle changes in your diet and routine and changes in your attitude, thoughts and the way you handle problems.
The effects of stress can be prevented with regular physical activity involving both your arms and your legs, which can be anything –going to the gym, jogging, swimming, cycling, tai chi or aerobic exercises. These induce the release of endorphins which makes us feel good. Exercise can also help us to take our minds off our day-to-day worries and negative thoughts.
Take a short time off in a stressful situation and go for a walk or a run or even a dance session and you will realize how well you have been able to take care of the situation without getting stressed.
One of the most efficient ways to deal with stress is to go out and meet people who make you laugh and feel good. Nothing can calm your nervous system more than talking to another person who understands your situation and reassures you. Reach out to your family members, friends and colleagues who are ready to listen to you. This will help you to calm down and release hormones that will reduce your stress. The lonelier you are the more are the chances of your health being affected by stress.
Stressful events flood our body with chemicals to prepare us to face the situation. Learn to counteract stress by learning relaxation techniques, which helps us to bring our mind out of stress into a state of mental equilibrium. Set aside 20 – 30 minutes each day for your relaxation practice.
