Dealing With Stress

Managing our stress effectively can be rewarding in several ways.

We can improve our own lives and those around us by being happier, healthier, more organized and more worry-free.

We can improve how we deal with stress in our lives by learning some easily understood techniques.

Let’s discuss dealing with stress.

Dealing With Stress

Why Is My Life So Stressful?

  • We may have responsibilities that we find overwhelming.
  • Feeling that we don’t have enough time to manage our lives.
  • Not having enough work, activity, or change in our lives.
  • We may experience discrimination, hate or abuse.
  • We may feel that we don’t have any control over the outcome of a situation.

How to Live a More Stress-Free Life

  • Stop overthinking situations that haven’t happened yet.
  • Stop taking on other people’s problems.
  • Be present in the moment. Stop living in the past and the future.
  • Focus on what you have, instead of what you don’t have.

What Happens After You Stop Stressing In The Moment?

When a perceived threat has passed, hormone levels return to normal.

As adrenaline and cortisol levels drop, your heart rate and blood pressure return to baseline levels, and other systems resume their normal activities. The body’s stress response system is usually self-limiting.

What Are The Health Risks Of Constant Stress?

When stressors are always present and you constantly feel under attack, that fight-or-flight reaction stays turned on.

The long-term activation of the stress response system and overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones that follows can disrupt many of our body’s processes.

Constant feelings of stress can put you at an increased risk of many health problems, including:

  • Headaches.
  • Depression.
  • Anxiety.
  • Digestive problems.
  • Sleep problems.
  • Weight gain.
  • Memory loss
  • Concentration impairment.
  • Muscle tension and pain.
  • Heart disease, heart attack.
  • High blood pressure, stroke.

Final thoughts

It’s so vital to learn healthy ways to cope with stress in our lives.

Eat a variety of foods from all food groups to get a range of nutrients to provide energy throughout the day. Getting enough sleep is also essential.

The news too frequently is filled with stories of pain and suffering. These stories can skew our view of the world and cause us to focus on our worst fears instead of recognizing the good that surrounds us. Consider limiting your exposure by taking a break from the news.

If disorganization in your home is a genuine source of daily stress, consider getting more organized. Pick out one closet, cabinet or drawer to clear out each week instead of overwhelming yourself with doing it all at once. Then move to your next goal when you feel ready and build from there.
