A Few Words About Stress
The impacts of stress on daily life are often unique to each
individual as these tend to manifest in our weaker areas. Our
bodies and minds can become fatigued and we feel tired or worn
out. Our immune systems can become slow to respond so that we
become ill more often or recovery from an existing illness
becomes much more difficult to achieve. One or more important
areas of our social lives may be affected such as work and
personal relationships, and parenting. We just don't
find pleasure and take less time to do the things that will
help to relieve stress and promote relaxation.
While we cannot always change or eliminate the things that
trigger stress in our lives we can make a conscious effort to
change our behaviors in response to these factors. We can say
no to new responsibilities, or put limits to what we take on.
We can take care of our bodies by healthful eating, drinking
plenty of water, and exercising. We can use various stress
reduction strategies such as setting aside some quiet time for
ourselves, adding humor to our day, visiting with friends, or
getting a massage.
Stress-causing situations may be common place in our
fast-paced society but this doesn't mean that we have to
accept their consequences as a fact of life. This is where
exercising our personal power to take control and either
change the conditions or our response to situations can make
all the difference.
