What is stress, and how can we handle it?

Stress is the body’s reaction to a trigger and is generally a short-term experience. It can be positive or negative. When stress helps you cope with the deadline that you’ve considered a lost cause, it’s positive. If, however, insomnia results, poor focus, and decreased ability to do the things you usually do, it is negative. Stress is a response to a threat in any given situation.


Which are the stress symptoms?

There are several emotional and physical stress-related disorders, including depression, anxiety, heart attacks, strokes, gastrointestinal problems, obesity, and high blood pressure. High levels of stress can greatly affect both the mind and body.

Because stress can manifest itself in many ways, it will be helpful to know some common symptoms:

  • Frequent headaches
  • Sleep disorders
  • Back and neck pain
  • Confused moods, of faint or dizziness
  • Sweating hands or feet
  • Swallowing difficulties
  • Frequent illnesses
  • Irritability
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Exaggerated concern
  • Fast heart rate
  • Muscle tension
  • Feelings that overwhelm you
  • Thoughts that do not give you peace
  • Poor focus
  • Memory gaps
  • Diminished energy
  • Loss of sexual desire

Stress symptoms can vary and change over time. If you look at your responses to stress, this can help you become aware of how it manifests itself in your case. Knowing this vital information will help you learn how to use stress reduction techniques at the first signs of stress to avoid long-term repercussions.

How can you handle stress?

Learning to cope with stress may require some trials and errors. What works for your best friend may not work for you. It is important to build your own set of stress reduction tools so that you have more than one strategy to act when it occurs:

  • Practice deep breathing:

The best thing you can do when you are stressed is to engage in deep breathing. Practice this strategy when you are calm, so you know how to use it when you are under pressure. Inhale while counting to four, hold the air in your chest four times and exhale while counting up to four. Repeat

  • Practice mindfulness techniques:

The best way to practice mindfulness is to disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with the natural world for a specific time each day. Take a walk outdoors and use this opportunity to observe the surroundings using all your senses

  • Get moving:

Daily physical exercises release chemicals into the brain This can prevent you from reacting negatively to stressful events

  • Keep a journal:

If you record the best and the worst things that happen to you daily, it will help you overcome obstacles and focus on what was right. It is usual for you to experience ups and downs every day

  • Be creative:

There is a result of why adult coloring books, which are so popular, work. Whether you draw, color, write poetry or throw paint on the wall, engaging in a creative hobby gives your mind a chance to relax

  • Listen to music:

If you listen to slow and relaxing music, this will decrease your stress response (just as more rhythmic music will make you run)

If you have difficulties in managing stress, and this will prevent you from doing your daily routine, psychotherapy can help. It is essential to learn to identify triggers and responses and to find strategies that work.
