Stress Management

Stress is what you get when you are not handling the pressure very well.  It is a natural reaction to excessive pressure.  Stress isn't a disease, but if stress is excessive and goes on for some time, it can lead to mental and physical problems such as depression, nervous breakdown, insomnia, tension headaches and migraine, respiratory infections, asthma, panic disorders, increased risk of cancer, high blood pressure and coronary heart disease.

Stress is common to all of us - from executives to shop floor workers, doctors, nurses, teachers, council workers, mothers and even school children.  No one is immune to stress, though some people can handle it much better than others.  You could be one of those people, by learning how to remove the unnecessary stresses from your life, and how to react differently to those you're stuck with.

Stress results from any event or situation that places physical or psychological demands upon you.  When stress occurs, complex physiological reactions occur that prepares the body to either fight, flight or freeze. These prehistoric responses of fighting, fleeing, or just playing dead, are practical solutions to physical danger and threats to life.  They are not, however, the most suitable response to the pressure of deadlines, presentations, arguments or other events of modern life.

A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?"

Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.

The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter.  It depends on how long you try to hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem.  If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm.  If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance.  In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management.  If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on.  As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again.  When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden."

"So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down.  Don't carry it home.  You can pick it up tomorrow.  Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can."

So, why not take a while to just simply RELAX.  Put down anything that may be a burden to you right now.  And don't pick it up again until after you've rested a while.  You may even choose to never pick it up again.

If you are not sure how to accomplish that, consider hypnotherapy - probably the most rapid and effective method of stress relief available.
