What is anxiety?
Do you often feel overwhelmed by the stress in your daily life? While “good” stress is vital and beneficial, “bad” stress can cause symptoms with an adverse effect on your health.
A NATURAL PHYSIOLOGICAL REACTION
A broken alarm clock, transport delays, overwork or simply a supermarket queue that is moving too slowly… Life can be full of stressful situations. Why does stress overwhelm you? Simply because your body reacts by going into “survival” mode when faced with obstacles and pressure. Your body adapts with a natural physiological reaction and stress is its response. That is why we do not all react the same way when faced with a situation. We secrete stress hormones the levels of which vary from one person to the next.
GOOD AND BAD STRESS
In some situations, stress can be your best friend. It enables you to forge ahead.Without this reaction, your ancestors would never have left their caves! It gives you adrenalin, the energy required to avoid danger, pass an exam, take on a sporting challenge, overcome your nerves before speaking in public or make a decision when confronted with a problem. And all this regardless of your age or gender!
However, depending on your emotional state, other situations can generate a type of stress which is more harmful and difficult to manage. For example, when your are experiencing a difficult situation at work, a separation, general burnout, a hard time quitting smoking, etc. Symptoms can soon become apparent and include insomnia, stomachaches and headaches, fatigue, irritability, shortness of breath, the sweats, low morale, snacking, difficulties with concentration or memory, etc. It is then time to react and do something because, in the long term, these symptoms pose a significant risk to your health (e.g. high blood pressure, depression, anxiety or illness).
