What Is Stress?

Stress is something that almost everybody feels at one point in their lives, but yet nobody can quite define it. Stress can affect both your body and your mind, and is your body’s way of responding to a demand of any nature. The demand could be good or bad, the body’s response is the same. When people feel stressed their bodies release chemicals into the blood in order to help deal with the stress.  These chemicals are designed to give people more energy and strength to deal with the stress. Whist this is a good thing at the time and may be a matter of life or death if you’re in a dangerous situation, it could also be bad if the stress is in response for example to something emotional where there is no outlet for the extra energy and strength the chemicals deliver to the body. This causes a different type of stress that in the long term could be harmful to you.

Identifying what is causing you to be stressed is often the first step in learning how to better deal with it.

Different types of stress:

Survival stress: This is the response to when you are in danger. You’re afraid someone may physically hurt you and you respond using the ‘fight or flight’ mechanism.  The stress is over once the stressor has gone.

Emotional stress: This type of stress is internal, where you worry about the things you have no control over, or have to many things to do in too little time. This stress can often be lingering causing lack of sleep and poor concentration, although some people say they thrive in this kind of situation.

Environmental Stress This is a response to things around you that cause stress, such as noise, heat, cold, pollution, crowding, and pressure from work or family that has not necessarily come from you.

Exhaustion stress – This kind of stress can be hard on your body. It builds up over a long time and is generally caused by overwork, and pushing your body too far without taking time to relax and recuperate.  

People under large amounts of stress can become tired, sick, and unable to concentrate or think clearly which may lead to a nervous breakdown

The first thing you may think of when you hear the word stress is feeling overloaded and nervous. But stress can also create upset stomachs (IBS), migraine headaches, skin inflammation in the form of eczema, hives or psoriasis, excessive drinking and smoking, depression, anxiety, brain fog, insomnia, tense, sore muscles and joints plus many more ailments.


How can I help my body cope?

Many stress symptoms can be relieved by proper nutrition and there is no better place to start than to make sure you are eating a well balanced diet and getting in enough daily vitamins that can help combat extreme stress levels. Stress actually depletes essential vitamins by using them up in order to cope. During time of stress you may need to take larger than normal doses of certain vitamins in order to re-address the balance until you get better. It’s about supply and demand.

It may seem simple, but there is a lot to be said about setting some time apart for yourself to organise your life and ask yourself – what am I getting so uptight about? Tackling a problem head on and ticking it off your list of things to do will greatly improve the situation.

Meditation and other relaxation techniques are also extremely valuable. Whilst one way may work for one person another may suit another. It’s all about working out what is best for you.
