Stress is something we have all experienced at different times throughout our lives. It’s the feeling of pressure and overwhelm, and it’s important to know that prolonged stress isn’t healthy and can lead to significant negative effects on every aspect of our health.
To understand stress, you need to understand that it’s the body’s biological response to something that could be dangerous or considered a threat. Examples can be work, family, health, and financial problems. There of course are different types of stress, such as chronic stress, acute stress, or episodic acute stress. Some symptoms to recognise stress in your every-day life can be feeling restlessness, forgetfulness, lack of focus, dizziness and anxiety.
Since stress is something, we cannot just avoid, we must learn to manage it, to make sure it doesn’t have control over our lives and doesn’t jeopardies our entire well-being. Identifying the sources of stress would be the first step to dealing with it. This will allow you to react and handle it better. Once you adopt self-awareness in your life, you will be able to easily identify sources of stress, and this will allow you to begin making changes on said sources.
