Dealing with stress

  1. Assalam alaykum guys/hello there,its been a long time since i posted on my blog resumption has been stressful from one project to another.I happen to have learnt that stress is dangerous if u dont understand how to deal with it.

According to websters dictionary,Stress is primarily a physical response. When stressed, the body thinks it is under attack and switches to ‘fight or flight’ mode, releasing a complex mix of hormones and chemicals such as adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine to prepare the body for physical action.stress affects the body and mind in ways we cant imagine.

Each person responds to stress in a different way, but too much stress can lead to health problems.These demands can be related to finances, work, relationships, and other situations, but anything that poses a real or perceived challenge or threat to a person’s well-being can cause stress.

Stress can be a motivator. It can be essential to survival. The “fight-or-flight” mechanism can tell us when and how to respond to danger. However, if this mechanism is triggered too easily, or when there are too many stressors at one time, it can undermine a person’s mental and physical health and become harmful.So to actually deal with this stress issue we need to take adequate measures to avoid having health issues.

A doctor will normally diagnose stress by asking the patient about symptoms and life events.

Diagnosis is complex. It depends on many factors. Questionnaires, biochemical measures, and physiological techniques have been used, but these may not be objective or effective.

The most direct way to diagnose stress and its effects on a person is through a comprehensive, stress-oriented, face-to-face interview.

Treatment includes self-help, stress management, and medication.

Nine self-help tips

Here are a few steps you can take to manage or prevent the feeling of being overwhelmed.

Masssage, yoga, or listening to music can help destress or prevent stress from building up.
Masssage, yoga, or listening to music can help destress or prevent stress from building up.

1. Exercise: Studies have shown that exercise can benefit a person’s mental and physical state.

2. Reducing intake of alcohol, drugs, and caffeine: These substances will not help prevent stress, and they can make it worse. They should be cut out or reduced.

3. Nutrition: A healthy, balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables helps maintain the immune system at times of stress. A poor diet will lead to ill health and additional stress.

3. Prioritizing: Spend a little time organizing your to-do list to see what is most important. Then focus of what you have completed or accomplished for the day, rather than what you are yet to finish.

4. Time: Set aside some time each day just for yourself. Use it to organize your life, relax, and pursue your own interests.

5. Breathing and relaxation: Meditation, massage, and yoga can help. Breathing and relaxation techniques can slow down the system and help you relax. Breathing is also a central part of mindfulness meditation.

6. Talking: Talking to family, friends, work colleagues, and your boss about your thoughts and worries will help you “let off steam.” You may be comforted to find that you are “not the only one.” You may even find there is an easy solution that you had not thought of.

7. Acknowledging the signs: A person can be so anxious about the problem that is causing the stress that they do not notice the effects on their body.

Noticing symptoms is the first step to taking action. People who experience work stress due to long hours may need to “take a step back.” It may be time to review their own working practice or to talk to a supervisor about reducing the load.

8. Find your own destressor: Most people have something that helps them relax, such as reading a book, going for a walk, listening to music, or spending time with a friend or a pet. Joining a choir or a gym helps some people.
