Journey Counselling
Stress is a normal response to situational pressures or demands and is part of everyday life. But chronic stress can lead to mental health problems and medical issues. When a person is stressed, our nervous system called the “fight or flight” response- becomes activated to confront or protect us from danger. The body releases large quantities of chemicals such as cortisol, adrenaline and other hormones. Factors of the environment can trigger this reaction called stressors. Some examples would be loud noises, aggressive behavior, scary movies, or even going on a date.
 
Here are some way to be able to control and deal with the stress we deal with in our every day lives. It is important to deal with our stress in a healthy way.
 
How to deal with stress:
Connect with others- a brief exchange of kind words or a friendly look from someone will calm your nervous system. Spend time with people who make you feel good.
Learn to relax- since we can’t eliminate stress for our life we can always try to control how ti affects us. Join a yoga class or practice some deep breathing at home.
Eat healthy- food can improve or worsen your mood and affect your ability to cope with life stressors. Eating a rich diet with fresh fruits, vegetables, high-quality protein, can help you cope with life’s ups and down.
Engage your senses- find the sensory input for you. Does listening to music help calm you? Or smelling fresh flowers? We all respond to sensory input differently.
Get moving- increasing your activity level will help relieve some stress. Exercising regularly can lift your mood and distract you from your worries. It allows a break from negative thoughts that can feed stress.
Get your rest – even though you may have troubles falling asleep it’s most important so you can think rationally.
 
Seek help if signs and symptoms of stress have been present for a long period of time. Recovering from chronic stress is possible.
