Stress And How To Avoid It


Everyone knows that stress isn’t good – that it can get on

top of us and effect our wellbeing. What most people don’t

realise is that stress can effect much more than just our

mood or mental state. Stress has been shown to have a

detrimental effect on many parts of our body and indeed

peoples health in general.

Most people are so used to stress and tension in their lives

that they do little or nothing about it until it begins to

have major negative effects on them. Everyone suffers from

stress – but it is important to sit up and take notice when

that stress begins to effect you.

Stress has a negative effect on your mental processes, it

can make you moody, anxious and unable to calmly cope with

life. However stress effects all of your body. Stress can

cause many afflictions such as high heart rate and blood

pressure difficulties. These are two key indicators of

stress being a problem so if you suffer from them then it is

time to try to reduce the stress in your life. By acting

early you can dramatically reduce your stress level and your

health should return to normal.

If you’re wondering about whether or not you should reduce

stress in your daily life, the answer is probably yes. Even

if you do not feel overly stressed out all that often,

stress reduction will still improve your life. Since being

too stressed can have major long term effects on your

health, this is one case where you’re probably better safe

than sorry.

Reducing your stress is not difficult, a little time spent

planning how to change your life can make a huge difference.

A small effort will go a long way to making you feel better

about yourself and others.

The first thing that you should do is to sit down and make a

list of all the things that are causing you to be stressed

out. It doesn’t matter whether or not you think something

should be stressful – write down anything that genuinely is

stressful to you. Then, go through the list again and see

which things you can eliminate from your life.

Obviously you wont be able to elminate everything on your

list from your life, there are some things like work that

are simply necessary. But there will be lots of things on

your list that you genuinely can address. Doing this, even

with only a few of the things on your list, can make all the

difference in your stress level.

Relaxation is something that you should add to your schedule

on a regular basis. There are few things that reduce your

overall stress level like a good time spent relaxing.

Therefore, you should set aside a period everyday to relax –

and make sure that it’s actually scheduled, after all,

you’re doing it for your health.

Exercise is another excellent way to combat stress, it will

make you feel better and more confident. It is particularly

good because it will make you fitter also, so your health

will benefit doubly.

seeing improvements in your health right away. Also, even

if you are not noticing that your health is improving right

away, you should still feel confident that it is – the more

relaxed you are, the better you should feel. Start working
