Do you feel physically and emotionally drained even though you do your best to relax?
Do you often get infections such as colds or influenza?
Do you experience headache and brain fog?
Do you often feel helpless or trapped?
This looks like chronic stress.
And it’s more dangerous than you think.
Your body is not designed to stay in fight-or-flight mode for extended periods of time.
But constant pressure at work, worrying about money, marriage issues, the challenges of parenting, and factors like political instability can make you feel stuck in a never-ending fight-or-flight reaction. And since you can’t really fight these factors or run away from them, you may feel like a trapped animal.
This constant state of alertness isn’t just exhausting. It undermines your mental health, leading to burnout, anxiety and depression. It also takes a physical toll on your entire body, weakening your immune system and increasing the risk of potentially deadly diseases. So once you’ve recognized that you’re suffering from chronic action, you need to take action as soon as possible.
But how do you overcome stress?
“Just get rid of the things that stress you” is not realistic advice, especially if it means you’d have to get rid of your job, your spouse, your mortgage and your neighbors.
Here are some better options.
Reduce stress by cultivating emotional resilience and mental toughness.
Reduce stress by practicing gratitude and mindfulness.
Reduce stress by decluttering your mind.
