Modern life is full of hassles, targets, deadlines and demands.
For many people, stress has become a way of life, but when you are constantly stressed and running in emergency mode, your mind and body will eventually pay the price.
In days gone by, the stress response would have caused our adrenal glands to produce powerful hormones to enable us to run away from danger and for our blood to clot quicker. But in today's environment, we don't go for a run when we are stressed; and if levels of these hormones remain high in our body, they can eventually start to cause major damage to your health, mood, relationships, productivity and quality of life.
Depression, insomnia, fatigue, poor digestion, high blood pressure, heart problems, muscle fatigue, irritability, can all be stress related.
Long-term stress can even rewire the brain, leaving you more vulnerable to anxiety and depression.
How to manage stress
Avoid unnecessary stress. Not all stress can be avoided, but by learning how to say no, distinguishing between “shoulds” and “musts” on your to-do list, and steering clear of people or situations that stress you out, you can eliminate many daily stressors.
Alter the situation. If you can’t avoid a stressful situation, try to alter it. Be more assertive and deal with problems head on. Instead of bottling up your feelings and increasing your stress, respectfully let others know about your concerns. Or be more willing to compromise and try meeting others halfway on an issue.
Adapt to the stressor. When you can’t change the stressor, try changing yourself. Reframe problems or focus on the positive things in your life. If a task at work has you stressed, focus on the aspects of your job you do enjoy. And always look at the big picture: is this really something worth getting upset about?
Accept the things you can’t change. There will always be stressors in life that you can’t do anything about. Learn to accept the inevitable rather than rail against a situation and making it even more stressful. Look for the upside in a situation—even the most stressful circumstances can be an opportunity for learning or personal growth. Learn to accept that no one, including you, is ever perfect.
Natural remedies for lowering stress include:
Gentle exercise, yoga, a healthy diet, herb and vitamin supplements, getting plenty of sleep, and various forms of complementary therapy.
