Get rid of stress! Its easy!
Stress is a state of inner tension. In a mild form and accompanies many of the individual effects of stage and wakefulness, which increases the individual’s readiness for action and reaction.
When stress is mild in intensity, it helps the individual to understand more properly the difficulties or dangers and react more quickly and efficiently. But since the intensity of stress increases to the point to produce the opposite effect, that persists even though the original cause has now been eliminated or created serious enough without cause, then it becomes a problem for humans.
- Manifestations of stress.
Stress manifests itself in many different forms. The same person can complain of anxiety, inner agitation, inability to find rest, for dizziness, headaches, tightness in the neck, precordial discomfort, gastrointestinal disorders more often in the form of spastic colitis, difficulty to keep his attention concentrated for a long time on a subject and many other atypical symptoms. Apart from anxiety, feelings of the individual are characterized either by phases of anger or bouts of wrath and sometimes depression accompanied by remorse and guilt.
When stress is somewhat more intense, it eliminates peace and joy through the individual, and also dominated by a vague fear for his health, for his ongoing situation or the possible unpleasant developments in his life or the life of his relatives. The more intense the anxiety, the more unable the person is to meet its obligations, to solve a problem or to decide in front of a dilemma.
Finally, in some cases, when the stress is particularly intense, can manifest itself in the form of crisis terror and panic.
The main factors that can be implicated in the creation of stress are:
Temperament. It has been proven that everyone is born themselves in terms of temperament. Some are more or less anxiety from birth.
The upbringing. The upbringing and childhood experiences often feed us with anxiety. If for example we had parents in childhood require of us more than we can deliver or if we lived close to anxious people that were transmitting their own anxiety to us, it is natural that we too have anxiety.
Failures. If we repeatedly had unexpected failures in the past , if we had the misfortune to encounter more difficulties or obstacles than others around us, then we may have developed anxiety inside us.Tips:Do not worry about:
AThings that must be changed and which can be changed. Just Fight to change them!
BThings that must change but there is no way to change them. Accept and adapt them. Because sadness in this situation, is not only useless but also harmful!
Dangers and difficulties. In everyday life there are many risks, sometimes real and sometimes imaginary. There are also many responsibilities and problems that are pushing us every day, demanding their solution. Such situations might include: threats to our health, the value of our existing, our professional or our family situation, fears about possible unpleasant developments that can disrupt our lives or take away the presence and the love of our relatives. Any real or imaginary situation that threatens to deprive us or prevent satisfaction of basic needs, can lead us into anxiety.
Doubt about our capabilities. Anxiety is easily created inside us when we doubt our value or our abilities. It should be noted that even seemingly small or insignificant obligations that we are unable to fulfill them, can create anxiety inside us when they threaten our self-esteem.
The dilemmas. Stress can be created inside us when we face dilemmas or need to get a big decision. Faced with such situations you can waver between two trends: the solution to move or to hold over? To say Yes or No? dare something risky?
Internal conflicts. Stress is often created by conflicts that are inside us, between our desires or expectations on the one side, and the restrictions dictated by conscience or surroundings, on the other.
Guilt. Mistakes, failures or sins of the past that we have not made sure to get rid of them with confession to God, generates us a lot of concern, anxiety or phobia.
Overload. Finally, the more we take to our shoulder burdens and problems such as ours and our close people’s we are forced to run from morning till night or tormenting our minds, the greater the anxiety within us.
Dealing with stress
Dealing with stress depends on its intensity. Intense anxiety or panic attack situations, they need medical treatment, while milder forms can be overcome with proper guidance and without the use of anxiolytic drugs. Anti-anxiety medications have proved a very good way to deal with situations of stress or panic.
Today it is possible that the intensity of anxiety can be reduced significantly in a short time and the patient can be relieved. This of course does not mean that the person is exempt from stress. So an integrated approach must be defined, which consists of two parts: the anti-anxiety medication and supportive psychotherapy.
Anti-anxiety medications are used for a few weeks and rarely for a few months. Then the dose is gradually reduced. For some of them (benzodiazepines, etc.) there is a risk of addiction or dependence, so it can not be reasonably used by patients without medical guidance.
Supportive psychotherapy is meant to help the patient to alter the stressful conditions of his life, or, if this is not possible, to enhance his ability to resolve difficult situations.
The correct solution would be the person to rid of the causes that can lead to anxiety. However this can not always be applied in action, the solution is to strengthen the body’s resistance to tolerate stress situations without causing anxiety or, better to diversify his internal world to the point that he is not affected by situations that otherwise would cause stress.
But how can this happen? I mentioned here a few simple instructions, however, if they applied, they can prevent the person from the risk of creating or increasing anxiety inside him.
ADo not try to reconcile the irreconcilable. For example, no one can be married to a woman and the same time be lover to another woman.
BDo not load yourselves with double weights.
CDo not stay for long in doubt or dilemmas. The extension of an uncertainty can make us mentally exhausted.
DAccepting minor situations, if we can not change them easily.
ETo properly evaluate the priorities. The first things to be placed in the first place and be the first target of our lives. The minor things can be left aside for another time.
