“Taking control of your stress levels and making it work to your advantage”
Stress is so common in everyone’s life today. Pressures and stress are an unavoidable part of work and life. But sometimes these stressors both acute and chronic overwhelm our coping mechanisms and this may push us into a downward spiral of helplessness and hopelessness. Stress is any demand – positive or negative – that affects our bodies or minds and tends to alter existing equilibrium. This can be a negative event such as a test, divorce, death or illness. It can also be an event that is positive and brings excitement into our lives such as a wedding, a birth, or graduation.
Stress effects both adults and children. Stress should not be ignored as it has been linked to heart disease, worsening of chronic medical ailments, chronic pain syndromes, depression, impaired sexual performance, sleep disturbances, nervous breakdown, alcohol and drug abuse, sickness absence, family break-ups and job dissatisfaction.
Benefits of effective stress management are endless. It reduces healthcare costs, increases vitality and longevity, improves relationships, improves work productivity
