Stress and Its Effects on the Body

If you did not know, stress can be causing many of your health-related problems and you may not even be aware. Stress can cause the body and mind to react in ways that normally they would not. Even the headache that you have on occasion, may be coming from stress. Perhaps you are having trouble remembering things like you normally would or you feel that your body and mind is just not delivering productively. Stress may be the blame for these things as well as many others. Putting a stamp on stress early into the game, can help you in finding ways to manage it before it gets out of hand.

Also, never assume that stress is the cause of your headache or forgetfulness, as these may be signs of other, more serious diseases or illnesses. Seeing your physician can help you diagnose the problem and a health care professional should always be consulted when in doubt. Stress can mimic heart attack symptoms, but you should never think that stress is the cause for the signs or symptoms if you ever experience them. Seeking medical or professional help always the right thing to do.

Stress, if left unattended for very long can cause long-standing health issues and can even cut your lifespan down considerably. Steps have to be taken in order to lengthen and increase the longevity of your life. Stress not only wreaks havoc on the individual who has it, it often rubs off to family members and close friends as well. If friends and family see that you are having a hard time with stress and related stressful issues, they may begin to experience it as well.

There are many types of stress busters and finding one that can help reduce or eliminate your stress is desirable. Things like yoga, meditation, relaxation activities and exercise is great for relieving stress. Finding an enjoyable hobby may often be the perfect remedy for eradicating stress. If you have trouble finding something that will take the stress off of you, talking to someone that you trust or a close friend can often help you in locating the perfect activity to knock out stress as well. There may be times when a medication or prescription may be issued to help alleviate stress and you and your doctor can assess and find the one that is right for you. Sometimes stress can be relieved by simply talking to someone close and trusting and you will find that you feel better just getting things off your mind as well.

    Good article on how to reduce the effects of stress. This can be very difficult for college students to deal with due to the increasing pressure to do well at school. I think the yoga and meditation exercises that you mention are great ways to mitigate the effects of stress an preserve a person’s health.

    I alwayz feels tensed without any proper reason.i can’t find the reason behind my tension.twice from my college i felt stiffness of my body due 2 tension.what s my problem ,any treatment for this?

    It could be due to a variety of reasons. Do you have some kind of pressure environment at home or college? I don’t know what you mean by stiffness of body. Do you mean like cramps? Then it could be just because of lack of enough water in the system (dehydration) rather than something to do with tension. Also, if there is no proper reason to feel tensed and you still feel it. It could be from the past. Many people after they go through a trauma feel pressured, and tense. Then it is time you let it go.

    Please have a long chat with the family. Get things off of your brain. Spit out any grudges/mis-understandings in the home/school. You should be fine. If these don’t help, see a doctor.
