Stress happens, it's normal. It’s the body’s reaction to change that requires response or adjustment. These reactions can be emotional, physical or mental.
Events happen around you that might be out with your control. Things that you do yourself also causes stress. The feeling of stress can occur from your body, your thoughts and your environment.
At times stress can be positive as it can keep you alert so you avoid danger. The negative side of stress occurs when an individual faces challenges one after another without relaxation or relief between these challenges. The person then feels overworked and stress-related problems build.
If stress isn’t dealt with in the correct manner through breaks and relaxation between each challenge it can lead to destress. Destress is a negative stress reaction that can lead to several health problems such as chest pain, headaches, increased blood pressure and upset stomach. Stress can worsen these symptoms too.
Stress can become more harmful when people turn to tobacco, alcohol or drugs to relieve their stress.
Whether it's your thinking ability, physical health, emotions or general behaviour, stress can affect all parts of your life. People handle stress differently so no part of the body is immune.
