In this high-speed high tech world there are many stressors everywhere u look. People need to know how to deal with stress, because stress can lead to all kinds of illnesses it can even lead to death or suicide. I will write on the causes of stress the effects of stress and some ways u can deal with stress or at least reduce it.
Many people can become stressed out for different reasons, but most people have some common stresses in their lives. One of the biggest stressors is the workplace. With deadlines, noise and having to be worried about being fired its no wonder people become stressed out because of work. Or if you are in school the same things apply having deadlines and grades to worry about can add stress to you no matter what grade level you are in. But an additional stress school can give is finical if your grades drop u might loose your scholarship and have to pay your way through. Another big one is traffic, the fumes and noise and bad drivers can really pile on the stress. I personally hate bad traffic because, of people cutting you off and tailgating and not using there turn signals, that all can add greatly to your stress not to mention it might give you a case of road rage. And finally on off the greatest of all stressors BILLS and other fiscal matters. Ah the dreaded word bills I bet your already thinking of that stack of bills you have at home or might be getting in the mail today. If you are that right there is proof of what a big stressor this is no one like handling bills cause all you do is watch your money slip away. And also if you come short one month on your bills you get the additional stress of fearing for your possessions which you worked hard for at that stressful place called work.
There is many ways stress can effect your body not to mention your mind. For one thing and probably the most common headaches and or migraines are cause by to much stress. Also another example would be a mental state of depression which can lead and have very negative effects to you and those around you, which in turn would cause more stress and reasons to be depressed. Another physical example would be ulcers, which can cause death by your own stomach acid eating your insides. An even deadlier effect of stress is high blood pressure and fast heart rate, which of course can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Also a mixture of stress and nervousness can cause you to vomit or get nauseated whenever confronted with a problem you have to solve. There are of coarse other ways it can effect you because everyone is different.
Now that I have told you causes and effects of stress I bet you want to know ways to reduce or prevent it. One good method is physical activity, which wears you out physically so you can rest easier at night even when worried about something. Another way to relax would be an escape like TV or reading or maybe a game of some kind in which you can forget your troubles and pretend your doing something else. Or if those don’t work for you maybe you should try a massage or a steam bath or something that relaxes your muscles and body so you can forget your problems easier and drift into comfort. And if none of those float your boat you might try just to try and get out into nature by maybe going to a lake or sitting in a park of just staring up at the sky. If any of these work you must remember there only temporary and that stressors will never just go away forever you just need to give yourself a break ever now and then.
Today stress is a lot more common now then in the past humans were not meant for this sort of mental abuse but we do it to ourselves in reality. Now that I have told you some possible reason effects and ways to cope with it get out there and fight the stress monster.
