08 May How Can You Overcome Stress Right Now?
Life teaches us many things with ups and downs. In this scenario, we often become stressed out due to the events that might be out of our control. We feel stressed out when we are unable to cope with a certain situation or event. It can become chronic if we don’t learn to manage and overcome stress in the meantime.
These stressful situations can arise from work, home, relationships, financial pressures, school performance pressure, and so on. Anything perceived as a danger or challenge can become the source of stress for the person.
What happens when you are stressed out?
When a person faces a perceived danger or threat, the face a partial physical reaction. Their brain indulges them in the flight-or-fight situation where they are given the option to either stay and handle the situation or they can get to safety as fast as possible.
The body produces a large quantity of cortisol, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. These hormones trigger the following reactions:
- Heightened muscle preparedness
- Increased blood pressure
These factors can either improve the individual’s response to the sudden challenge and dangers, or they can make them run away and seek protection. Again, it all depends on how we perceive the things around us.
Types of Stress
The National Institute of Mental Health has identified the following types of stress:
- Routine stress – such as financial responsibilities, childcare, homework, chores, and academics.
- Sudden and disruptive stress – such as the finding of the loss of jo or family bereavement, etc.
- Traumatic Stress – an accident, death of a loved one, environmental disaster, war, etc.
Each stress can trigger the body and mind on different levels. However, if an individual learns to manage the stress at the very acute level, he/she can be able to cope with the bigger situations as well.
