Stress is not always bad. But prolonged (chronic) stress can lead to health problems. Preventing chronic stress can reduce the risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, and depression. It will also prevent memory impairment, difficulty in making decisions and the inability to enjoy.
You can avoid or reduce stress …
- By planning affairs, tasks, goals
(compile lists and adequately evaluate the time you spend on doing things)
- Priority problem-solving (important things should be done in the first place)
Preparing for stressful situations (pre-scroll through an unpleasant conversation in your head or think over a backup plan)
Physical signs of stress:
Dramatic weight gain or weight loss
Frequent or severe prolonged colds
Constant muscle tension
Some stressful situations can be difficult to avoid, but you can always turn to affordable ways to deal with stress:
Time to rest
Activity and healthy eating
Meditations (help normalize breathing, relax muscles)
Conversations, meetings with friends and family
Stresses are a normal part of life right up until the moment when they begin to harm your health, and you can not cope with them on your own. Do not be afraid to seek the help of a psychologist — there is nothing shameful in this!
