Stress and Stress Management
Stress = the body's reaction to change specifically, change it does not expect, does
not want or feels threatened by
Eustress = positive stress Distress = negative stress.
All stress can be negative if we don't know how to handle it. For example, a
wedding is a wonderful, beautiful time for husband and wife and all the bridal party,
families and friends. It is however a very stressful time. If wedding planning is done
1 thing at a time in a realistic goal with shared responsibilities, it will stay positive. If
the wife is doing everything herself and things start going wrong..it's negative.
Stress ends up effecting all areas of PISES and can lead to heart disease, muscle
tension, confusion, loss of sleep, depression, isolation from friends, poor grades and
When a person is effected by a stressor (something that causes stress), which is
different for everyone, their body reacts the fight or flight response. Heart rate
increases, breathing rate increases, digestive system slows down, and the body
prepares itself as if it was a real fight. This is because of primitive animal instincts
within all animals.
Stress management techniques such as creating lists of things to do, deep breathing,
making "me time", goal setting, object manipulation, exercise and many others, can
be helpful in assisting someone in managing stress
Stress and lack of coping skills leading to depression:
As you may have read on the "emotions" page, if a person is suffering from stress
OR perceives they have stressors in the life they do not know how to manage OR
lack the ability to have positive expressions of feelings, these can all lead to various
negative expressions of the emotions including anger control problems, violence,
drug and alcohol use, isolation, or self hurting such as scratching and cutting one's
self. The reasons vary on why these are the possible reactions but the overall
summary is that they are trying to "feel" better or trying to "escape" or rather "relieve"
the emotional pain.
Lack of coping or management of stressors and emotions can lead to negative self
image as well as depression. Depression can be debilitating. It is important for
young people in particular to recognize that no matter how bad it is, things can
ALWAYS get worse. It is up to each of us as an individual to find what
HEALTHY, POSITIVE method or technique works to help alleviate our stress and
manage our stressors. We should never purposly hurt someone else or ourselves!
