Do you want to know how to manage stress in an effective manner? If your answer is yes then you should first try to understand how to identify as well as deal with the two types of stress, which are chronic and acute stress. Since acute stress paves the way for the more disturbing chronic stress, it is essential to manage acute stress first.
Did you know that a mild form of stress can be beneficial for your health? It can make you feel energized, motivated, or even incite you to do something. However, if you really feel stressed out, then that means that too many mild forms of stress have accumulated. You can suffer from many serious health problems if you suffer from constant stress.
You may suffer from physical symptoms like tiredness and headache, or social symptoms like bitterness and loneliness. Stress can also lead to emotional problems such as depression and bad temper or a mental problem like poor concentration.
Internal Stress-Causing Agents
All kinds of stress do not arise from things, which happen in your life. You can also be responsible for inducing stress on your own. Internal stressors are those thoughts and feelings that arise in your mind and lead to emotional disturbances. There are different kinds of internal irritations such as uncertainty.
This may happen when you wait for the results of a medical test. You may also be uncertain about your position in office. Fears such as fear of heights, flying, as well as apprehensions like taking part in a group discussion with new people, can also cause stress.
If you have a negative attitude towards your life and towards the world then you can suffer from internal irritations. Don’t set impractical and unrealistic expectations for yourself as you will only increase your stress levels.
