Stress is something that we all experience. It is a part of life that, for most people, ebbs and flows with circumstances. But there are times for everyone when stress reaches a level which can be hard to manage. A person may experience both physical and emotional symptoms and find it difficult to focus on what they need to. 7 Cups offers online counseling for stress to help discover ways to reduce the burden and get you back to a healthier way of life.
What Causes of Stress?
Stress can be caused by both positive and negative influences in life. Something exciting, like a marriage or new job, is still a source of change and stress. And, undesirable stressors seem to be all around us. They can be major events like the loss of a loved one or health issues, or they can be small but consistent influences like a busy schedule which simply accumulates over time. Stress is a normal part of life, and we all have to discover our own ways of coping it.
Symptoms of Stress
An individual may experience a wide range of reactions to stress. Some are common like anxiety, sleeplessness, nausea, acne, and aches and pains. Other responses may include substance abuse, depression, anger, apathy, tearfulness, or feelings of being overwhelmed. Our responses to stress are individualized and no two people will react the same. The toll that stress can take on a body is significant, and a good reason to address the issue sooner rather than later.
