Understanding Stress:

StressIn everyday life we face countless challenges. We overcome some of them but some put a lot of pressure on our emotion and health. We need stress in small dose to help perform better and to be motivated, but if it’s constant, it is going to take a toll on your system.

Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in any way. It is the body’s way of protecting you. When working properly, it helps you stay focused, energetic, and alert. When it boils over a certain point, it stops being helpful and starts causing major damage to your health, emotion, productivity, relationships, and quality of life.  If we can identify the symptoms, we can take steps to reduce the effect it has on us.

The stress mode become ‘on’ whenever there is a physical or emotional threat present. The longer it is ‘on’ is harder to shut down and easier to go overboard. How much is too much varies from person to person, since some people can cope a lot while others crumbles easily. Some people expect too much of themselves and when they cannot live up to the image they created of themselves it puts a lot of pressure.  Sometimes being human, we always care about what others expect of us and to be accepted  by them, we try to live up to their expectations

Long term exposure will lead to this:

  1. Raise blood pressure
  2. Suppress the immune system
  3. Increase the risk of heart attack and stroke
  4. Contribute to infertility
  5. Speed up the aging process
  6. Make you prone to anxiety and depression.
