If we don’t recognise the signs of stress, those around us may be aware we are stressed and will be on the receiving end.
Although some stress can be good for us because it keeps us motivated and alert, in some cases stress can even make us aware of danger signs and how best to avoid them. In abundance stress can make us ill.
Living with stress without any relief, can lead to ‘negative stress reactions.’ Stress is known to disturb the internal balance that can lead to physical symptoms, if our stress persists. Those symptoms can include the usual problems such as headaches, high blood pressure, insomnia and stomach aches.
Stress can also lead to emotional problems such as depression and anxiety. It can hasten other symptoms and increase disease. As long as we know and understand what our stress is, we can turn stress and stressful situations around.
By changing the way that we think about things; by us being more proactive and dealing with our issues and us simplifying our lifestyles, we can help put the lid on stress.
