Chronic Stress

By: Jamie Sue Tan

Everybody encounters stress, nobody is exempted from it. In every facet or our life, in every situation we might come across, every success and failure, up to the very mundane parts of our existence we will face stress. Since it is inescapable, it would seem that experiencing constant stress would then be normal. But there are levels of stress that we can consider to be normal and helpful and there are levels which would generally break us down physically and mentally, this is called chronic stress.
Stress may be considered normal. But chronic stress is something that must not be ignored. To be able to distinguish chronic stress, we need to be able to know how it works. For starters, chronic stress is the brains continuous response to undesirable events for an extended period of time. These events are often those beyond the individuals control.
Chronic stress is a development of stress when the brain has little chance to relax in a long period of time that it is exposed to stressors. By nature, we can handle acute stress but not chronic stress. Note that each individual has different stressors and stress levels. But prolonged exposure to stressors eventually causes us to break down.
So how will you know when you are experiencing or on the verge or experiencing chronic stress? You will be able to tell the difference between acute and chronic stress by observing your symptoms. Chronic stress is mainly characterized by symptoms such as; upset stomach, headache, backache, insomnia, anxiety, depression, anger, weight loss/gain, and hypertension. In severe cases chronic stress can lead to panic attacks or a panic disorder and can also play a role in worsening depression and cardiovascular disease, plus make us look way older than we really are.
Chronic stress is the accumulated result of all the stress and stressors that we face everyday. Problems that are never solved at work, at home, with family, with co-workers, with bosses, with money, and others lead to stress. Chronic stress happens when our body cant take it anymore and it snaps. To prevent this, we should identify each stressor and deal with them one by one before we develop chronic stress.
It is important that you take the time to know everything about chronic stress and how you will be able to handle it. If you find that you have chronic stress dont waste any time in finding a solution. The good thing about this condition is that, there a lots of easy to learn techniques out there that will be able to help you out. Some you can learn by enrolling and some you can learn by yourself. Some requiring you to practice and some will only require you to laugh, because the good thing about chronic stress is that you dont need to go far and pay much in order to get better.
