a. Overview

For many people, stress has become a way of life. In small doses, stress provides a source of motivation to try harder and is a positive stimulant for greater performance under pressure. However, under constant duress, stress can be very harmful for both the mind and the body.

Stress is a normal physical reaction to threatening or upsetting events. In other words, the body enters the “fight or flight” response as a defense mechanism against danger, whether real or merely perceived. This response is designed to protect you by making you more focused, energetic, and alert, possibly saving your life in an emergency. However, if stress becomes overbearing, it may cause significant damage to your mood, productivity, relationships, and overall quality of life.

b. Causes of Stress

Stressors are situations and pressures that may cause stress. Stressors don’t necessarily have to be negative; they are simply anything that puts high demands on you or forces you to adjust. Stressors are a matter of perception; your stressors might not be considered stressors to someone else. Stressors can be grouped into internal and external categories. Common internal causes of stress include pessimism, unrealistic expectations, perfectionism, lack of assertiveness, inability to accept uncertainty, and negative self-talk. Common external causes of stress include major life changes, relationships issues, financial problems, children and family, work, or simply being too busy.

c. Signs and Symptoms of Stress Overload

The signs and symptoms for stress are varied and large in number, with four major categories under which they can be grouped.

Cognitive Symptoms:
  • Memory problems
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Poor judgement
  • Intense pessimism
  • Constant worrying
Emotional Symptoms:
  • Moodiness
  • Irritability/Shortness of temper
  • Agitation/restlessness
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Sense of loneliness and isolation
  • Depression or general unhappiness
Physical Symptoms:
  • Aches and Pains
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Nausea, dizziness
  • Chest pain, rapid heartbeat
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Frequent colds
Behavioral Symptoms:
  • Eating more or less
  • Sleeping more or less
  • Forced isolation from others
  • Procrastination
  • Abuse of alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs
  • Nervous habits

d. Things That Influence Your Stress Tolerance Level

  • Your support network: A strong network of friends and family can help buffer against life’s stressors
  • Your sense of control: Having more confidence in your ability to influence events and persevere through obstacles will help to decrease stress levels
  • Your attitude and outlook: An optimistic outlook makes you less vulnerable to stress
  • Your ability to deal with your emotions: The ability to bring emotions into balance helps you bounce back from challenges
  • Your knowledge and preparation: Having more knowledge about the logistics of a stressful situation makes it easier to deal with

e. Consequences of Chronic Stress

The body does not differentiate between physical and psychological threats, so a traffic jam and a life-or-death situation is met by the same physiological response in your body. The more your stress response is turned on, the harder it is to turn off.. Stress can lead to hypertension, autoimmune diseases, and infertility, not to mention increase your risk for heart attacks and strokes as well as speed up the aging process. Chronic stress exposure can lead to serious health complications by disrupting almost every bodily system, and may even cause severe anxiety, depression, or obesity.

f. Dealing with Stress

Stress is an inevitable part of life, precluding the idea of stress prevention. Rather, it is important to know how to cope with stress effectively in a health-conscious manner. Learning how to take charge of your thoughts, emotions, environment, and outlook can help you manage your stress and change a difficult situation into a manageable one. Learning how to relax is also important. Relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, or deep breathing can go a long way to activating the body’s relaxation response.
