Stress is a naturally arising physiological state that can be detrimental to an individual’s work and home life and ultimately wellbeing, if left unchecked. Humans did not evolve to be in a state of permanent stress as nature only intended it to be short lived. It’s there to get you to take action. In simple terms to move away from something or towards (the carrot and stick). It is a message from the mid brain and is primative in its function – it wants to keep you say or enjoy a reward. Unfortunately for the human psyche modern day living is a challenge for it to maintain balance. However, here’s the good news a lot can be done to alleviate stress and with sound guidance, mind management tools, people can enjoy better emotional regulation and are more able to cope.
The efffects are both phsycial and psychologoical. When people are stressed they function less well – your memory and thinking can be chaotic. Initially stress can make you feel energised, however in the long term people phsyically find themselves unmotivated and drained. Some individuals are even totally oblivious to the changes and it’s the people around them that notice!
Ultimately good stress management gives you the behaviours you desire which allow you to live how you want to be. Stress is one of the prominent factors that hinders the success and growth of an individual, making it harder to sustain the acquired success.
