WHAT IS STRESS?


StressStress is the "wear and tear" our bodies experience as we adjust to our continually changing environment. It has physical and emotional effects on us and can create positive or negative feelings.

POSITIVE INFLUENCE
Stress can help compel us to action. It can result in a new awareness and an exciting new perspective.

NEGATIVE INFLUENCE
It can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger and depression.

HEALTH PROBLEMS
Headaches, upset stomach, rashes, insomnia, ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.
With the death of a loved one, the birth of a child, a job promotion, or a new relationship, we experience stress as we readjust our lives. In so adjusting to different circumstances, stress will help or hinder us depending on how we react to it.

REASONS FOR STRESS
Deadlines, competitions, confrontations and even our frustrations and sorrows, though the reasons of stress add depth and enrichment to our lives.

STRESS MANAGEMENT
We all thrive under a certain amount of stress. As we have seen, positive stress adds anticipation and excitement to life. Our goal is not to eliminate stress but to learn how to manage it and how to use it to help us. Insufficient stress acts as a depressant and may leave us feeling bored or dejected. On the other hand, excessive stress may leave us feeling "tied up in knots". What we need to do is find the optimal level of stress which will individually motivate but not overwhelm each of us.

SOME PRACTICAL TIPS ON STRESS REDUCTION

GET SMART ABOUT TECHNOLOGY
Using the phone just for emergencies keeps you from becoming a slave to it.

HOME IN ON CLUTTER
Put the kids to work. Use the library. Read books to keep your mind off the possibility of unwanted stress.

StressDON'T WEAR A WATCH!
If you're late, there's not a damn thing you can do about it, and checking your watch a thousand times isn't going to get you there
any faster.



AVOID AN ANXIOUS BRAIN
Do just one thing at a time. Read the newspaper or listen to the radio or eat dinner -- not all three at once. Multi-tasking only feeds anxiety.
