What Is Stress? Quite simply it is the condition or feeling experienced when a person perceives that the demands being placed upon them are greater than their ability to cope. Furthermore we all react to stressful situations and circumstances differently and in a highly individual manner. It is also worth noting that not all stress is bad. Positive stress provides us with motivation, excitement and energy. It drives us forward, to achieve and reach our goals. However, it is when we cross that “tipping point” and the level of stress in our lives becomes more than we can cope with that we fall victim to tiredness, exhaustion and ultimately illness.
Stress the modern plague. At one time the only people who suffered from the effects of stress were Senior Executives and Business People who ran large companies. But today we are all vulnerable to the stresses caused by living in a modern, fast paced world. We all have our own issues to deal with; be it financial pressures, problems with relationships or family, failing health or pressure at work.
Our hospital wards are filled to overflowing with people suffering from high blood pressure, heart disease, digestive disorders, depression and anxiety to name but a few stress related illnesses. But it is at a personal level that we see the real tragedy as people’s health and lives are blighted, confidence eroded their happiness and peace of mind robbed by stress.
