Stress Symptoms, Signs & Causes: Effects of Stress Overload

Updated on May 27, 2013

Everyday we accumulate a lot of stresses in our bodies. These lead to body pains, tensions, Increase in Blood pressure & sugar etc. Many people to avoid this have medicines everyday, use acupressure, yoga & many other exercises.

But do we ever think the reasons for these pains & tensions? Many would have these because of family or business problems. But as per a study by London’s Top medical Institute, about 58% of people face these problems because of doing certain activities in EXCESS. They tend to use their bodies, much more than its capacities. Below, I have mentioned the reasons which caused pains & cramps in bodies of these 58% people.

# 1 Excess Standing

Many people do such jobs where they have to stand a lot. This excess standing damages their bladder & kidney meridians which directly lead to fatigue & backaches. To restore the meridians, after standing for long time, rub your back for 2-3 minutes. Then hold the muscle below your collarbone for atleast 1 minute. Finally hold the points on inner portion of your ankles for 1 minute as you deep breathily.

# 2 Excess Sitting

It is the most common problem which we have. We sit for hours & hours in our office while working. But this can damage our stomach & also lead to digestive disorders. To reduce the effect, you can stimulate the Three Mile points on outside part of your calves.

# 3 Excess Lying Down

Excess of lying down directly affects the two major parts of our body, which are lungs & large intestine. This causes both elimination & respiration problems. To restore it, you need to join the valley between your thumb & forefinger.

# 4 Excess uses of your eyes

Yet another common problem. We sit hours & hours in front of our laptop, television, mobiles etc. This demands excessive use of eyes which causes small intestine & heart problems. To balance its meridians, you can use the point which is at the center of your breastbone. There is also a traditional exercise in yoga for it i.e closing your eyes & rubbing it for 3-5 minutes.

# 5 Excess physical exertion

This problem is usually seen among people who do a lot of workout in gyms & also people involved in sports like rugby, soccer etc. It causes a lot of damage to liver & gallbladder causing cramps & spams. You can use the point on top of your feet to restore these meridians.

      I am really enjoying all of your Hubs, we seem to have many similar interests! For me stress is a big issue - it does so much damage if not handled appropriately. I'm working on a hub right now that will address how to counter the anxiety and pressure that seems to come with life!

      Good job-rated up and useful!

      Useful tips and I will use them for sure. I often wondered how best to help ease back strain from standing too long. Voted up.
