About Stress

Stress is The adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them.

Pressure can be positive and a motivating factor, helping us to achieve goals and perform better, but stress occurs when this pressure becomes excessive and we perceive the demands are greater than than our ability to cope. When faced with a potentially stressful situation, our mind instructs our body to get ready for 'Fight or Flight' and does this by releasing chemicals into our body. You may have felt your heart and breathing rates increase, your hands sweating or your muscles tensing, perhaps completely focused on the situation and unable to think of anything else - all caused by these chemicals. As brief, occasional occurrences, this is not a bad thing as it allows us to take appropriate action and when the situation has been dealt with, the body recovers to a normal state. However, if we experience stress excessively or for a prolongued amount of time, the body is constantly flooded with chemicals and has no opportunity to recover. This can result in physical and/or mental illness.
Stress can also result from having too few demands, as we can feel undervalued, lack recognition, become bored and feel we have little or no say in what we do and how we do it.

How can you tell if you are suffering from Stress?

There are many signs and symptoms of stress and the common ones are listed below. What one person finds stressful can be perfectly normal to another. The key is to look for a change in how you usually are and if you feel your attitudes or behaviours are changing due to a situation at work or home, these symptoms may indicate stress. It's possible you may experience such symptoms which are not caused by stress and it's always advisable to seek advice from your GP.
