Stress, such a loaded word. Stressors can range from the smallest thing to the most complicated. How we deal with stress impacts our health greatly.
There are several different types of stress:
*physical - physical activity, injury/illness, pregnancy
*emotional - grief, anger, fear
*mental - anxiety, perfectionism, decision fatigue
*environmental - chaos, extreme conditions, noise/odors
*existential - depression, meaningless, hopelessness
*social - loneliness, social rejection, unsupportive/dysfunctional relationships
Where is your stress? Is it within your control? How does your body respond to stress?
What do you do to de-stress? Who supports you during stressful times?
We ALL have stressors! Stress does not discriminate, not one bit. Increased stress, especially over time, can increase our health risk factors. How we deal with stress (for example more as a challenge than stress itself), can have a huge impact on our body!
The good news is there are several different ways to help reduce stress, handle stress differently, manage it for the long haul, and maintain a positive level of healthy stress!
So what are you waiting for?! Let's co-create a better life with stress today!
