What is Stress?
Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand. It can be caused by both good and bad experiences. When people feel stressed by something going on around them, their bodies react by releasing chemicals into the blood. These chemicals give people more energy and strength, which can be a good thing if their stress is caused by physical danger. But this can also be a bad thing, if their stress is in response to something emotional and there is no outlet for this extra energy and strength. This class will discuss different causes of stress, how stress affects you, the difference between ‘good’ or ‘positive’ stress and ‘bad’ or ‘negative’ stress, and some common facts about how stress affects people today.
Stress can affect both your body and your mind. People under large amounts of stress can become tired, sick, and unable to concentrate or think clearly. Sometimes, they even suffer mental breakdowns.
How to overcome stress? Following are some tips to relieve your stress and be happy. So read them and relieve your stress and share it with others as well so they can get benefit.
Chew a gum
Keep your jaw busy and decrease your anxiety by chomping on a stick of gum. Chewing gum can help you stay focused and alert while multitasking while keeping your stress levels in check. Blowing some bubbles might also lighten your mood. But, no matter the flavor you choose, make it sugar-free!
Research has shown that most of us are traumatized, just sitting at our desks. Change of scenery can help you reboot, especially when you have been working for a long period, without a break. When you feel fatigued, leave your desk for 5 minutes to walk around, probably outside in the open air or to the bathroom.
Make the effort to go outside and fill your lungs with fresh air. Take a nice walk and enjoy the scenery and sounds of the outside world. This is often a fantastic way to clear your mind and organize your thoughts.
Express Your feelings
Don’t bottle up your emotions. You should experience emotions regardless if they are negative or positive. You should also express the way you feel to others, and find ways to release pent up emotions. Great methods include singing and writing.
Drink More water
Being slightly dehydrated can amplify your stress, and if you’re superstressed, chances are high you are not taking in enough liquids to begin with. If you’re feeling the pressure of the season and your mouth is dry, sip some water to clear your mind.
