WHAT IS STRESS?

Stress-Reduction-Therapy

According to the American Institute of Stress, stress is one of America’s leading health problems. Many times, you experience stress due to psychological threats, such as losing a job, relationship problems, or the death of a loved one. These threats are relatively common and can happen more than once in your life.

Stress is another form of your body’s flight or fight response or the reaction you have when there is a physical threat to your life. This reaction causes your brain to release cortisol and adrenaline into your bloodstream. This reaction causes clotting, elevated heart rate, blood pressure, and blood sugar, as well as an increase in your blood flow.  

Your body’s response to stress is uncontrollable. If you’re constantly stressed, you could develop diabetes and chronic pain and be at a higher risk for heart attacks and strokes. Looking for stress management can help with these risks.

 If stress is ongoing and unbearable, it can contribute to many mental and physical health issues. Research studies have suggested that high-stress levels can cause:  

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Anger issues
  • Chronic pain
  • Migraines
  • Intimacy problems
  • Changes in your mood or health
  • Drug or alcohol addiction
  • Irregular sleeping patterns
  • Less productivity at work
  • Less enjoyment in social activities
  • Stroke or heart attack

These issues may disappear after you attend stress management therapy. However, some problems can get worse if you do not get treatment. It is imperative that you get treatment for stress management before some health problems become untreatable.
