Stressed? Do you understand your levels?

Feeling stressed from life pressures?

If you are experiencing any of these:

  • Cravings
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Sleep concerns
  • Hair loss
  • Rashes and itchy skin
  • Chest pain and palpitations
  • Stressed out skin
  • Eyelid spasms
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Irregular periods and PMS
  • Stomach problems

You might want to take a closer look at your stress levels. 

When we feel under stress, our body kicks into high gear to deal with the threat. Our heartbeat, breathing rate and blood pressure all go up. The longer we feel stressed, the greater the demand on our body.

The more often we are placed under stress, the more often we have to use energy to cope. There is growing evidence that stress may contribute to physical illness such as cardiovascular disease (although this link remains controversial and research is ongoing), high blood pressure, proneness to infection and chronic fatigue

When stress turns into a serious illness, it is important to get professional help as soon as possible. Untreated anxiety disorders can lead to serious depression.

The old adage ‘prevention is better than cure’ is certainly true for stress management. It will help if you:

  • Exercise regularly – regular exercise is a great way to manage stress. You should do some form of exercise that causes you to feel puffed afterwards – a leisurely stroll to the bus stop is not enough! Have at least 20 minutes of exercise three times a week
  • Avoid conflict – avoid situations that make you feel stressed such as unnecessary arguments and conflict (although ignoring a problem is not always the best way to reduce stress). Assertiveness is fine but becoming distressed is not
  • Relax – give yourself some time to relax each day and try to spend time with people who make you feel good about yourself
  • Eat well – a nutritious diet is important. Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and avoid sweet and fatty foods
  • Sleep – a good sleep routine is essential. If you have difficulty falling asleep, do something calm and relaxing before you go to bed like listening to music or reading with a cup of Calming Elixir
  • Enjoy your life – it’s important to make time to have some fun and to get a balance in your life.


So what can you do to feel better?
