A constant bombardment of highly stressful situations leads the body to suffer from chronic stress. This is detrimental to our physical and emotional well-being. Medical research has shown that stress is a major cause of disease and illness. The National Institute for Mental Health studies and other surveys show that seventy to 80 percent of all visits to the doctor are for stress-related and stress-induced illnesses. In addition, stress contributes to 50 percent of all illnesses in the United States.
There are different types of stressors in life, including serious illness, death in the family, divorce, financial hardship, job loss, academic pressure, or impending deadline at work. Regardless of the source of the stress, the body’s natural response to stress is the released of cortisol, adrenaline, and noradrenaline into the bloodstream. Once these stress hormones are released into the bloodstream, it causes the nervous system to trigger increased heart rate, blood pressure, perspiration, body temperature, blood clotting, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels.
Additionally, neck and shoulder muscles tense up and the digestion system halts to preserve energy to deal with the immediate situation. If one constantly experiences excessive stress, then the body does not has enough time to repair itself. As a result, the body is out of balance and may lead to a state of burnout, where depression, anxiety, and other emotional as well as physiological health problems develop.
Stress can strike from all areas of life. It can come from academic pressure, financial, family, or job related issues. Job stress is an epidemic, causing accidents as well as a range of illnesses that cost businesses $300 billion a year in health care costs and absenteeism. Common work stressors include heavy workload, multiple projects and deadlines, interactions with customers, and relations with bosses and co-workers. Early intervention to treat stress is the best option to maintain business productivity as well as preventing disasters from occurring.
