WHAT IS STRESS?
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.
Stress can help compel us to action. It can result in a new
awareness and an exciting new perspective.
It can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger
| 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
REASONS FOR STRESS
Deadlines, competitions, confrontations and even our frustrations
and sorrows, though the reasons of stress add depth and enrichment
to our lives.
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.
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
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.
