This month our theme is working with STRESS.
What Is Stress?
Stress is a feeling of strain and pressure. In small amounts stress can be beneficial, and even healthy, helping us to improve, be motivated and achieve our goals. When the feeling of pressure reaches a point where we start to worry about it and it bothers us, we call it excessive stress. This kind of stress may lead to bodily harm, increasing the risk of strokes, heart attacks, ulcers and mental illnesses such as depression.
How Can It Affect Me?
If you are stressed you can feel tense, anxious, upset, hopeless, helpless, worthless, guilty, irritable, angry and restless. You may feel you can't cope or don't have the resources to deal with what you have been asked to deal with, whether at work or facing a life event such as moving house, divorce or having a child. You may experience loss of appetite or overeating, be tense and unable to relax, have problems concentrating, remembering details or making decisions. Stress can also cause sleep problems fatigue, aches, pains, digestive problems or reduced energy.
