Our daily lives are filled with so many
responsibilities, obligations and commitments
as individuals, parents and spouses, that we
get faced with pressures from all sides without
realizing it. Sooner or later, stress catches up
with us. Fortunate are those who realize that
they are stressed and can resolve the situations
that arise and prevent them from getting worse.
The majority of people can’t identify or resolve
stressful situations and allow them to build up
until they progressively deteriorate their ability to
function. Frequent causes of stress include marital
discord, pregnancy, family changes, a new job,
moving, remodeling, changing financial status and
the loss of a loved one. Some individuals are more
prone to stress because they do not know how to
cope with sudden change, or do not know how
to set priorities; they rush into making decisions
without all the information needed, therefore,
the decision is incorrect leading to more stress.
As stress builds up, it can create or aggravate
health problems such as depression, ulcers,
phobias, high blood pressure, sleeping disorders,
tension, headaches and anxiety. Speaking to a
therapist about your worries, concerns or doubts is
extremely important. Don’t wait for the stress to
affect your personal life. Find the time to eat well,
rest, and get regular exercise. Planning your day
ahead, keeping a journal, and making time to relax
and do the activities you enjoy can also help to
keep stress in check.
