Stress Changes your Lifestyle

I learned about making sheep's wool during my stay in South Africa. An interesting process to oversee.

Stress kills if you let it!


Coping with Stress

Stress: A Path to many Health Issues

Are you stressed over everything?

Are you misunderstood by stress?

There are many misleading points about how one is affected by stress.

I figured that since I have been through so much in my foreign country. Stress is not the same for everyone.

Stress affects individuals in different ways.

People don't let go of hurt, traumatic experiences, and grudges as everybody else.

Each and everyone of you have a threshold for coping with these issues.

Everyone reacts in a unique way.

What triggers your stressful lives?

Stress is not always bad.

People who fail to handle stress and think negative of the event can fall apart.

You can get over the moment with a smile, or a scream and with a shout to act to feel positive again.

The moment you connect negative energy with stress you fail.

Stress is not everywhere.

The bad events cause you to feel stressed.

If you let that bad moment into your life when it doesn't concern you surely you feel stressed.

The way you shape your life around those stressful moments assures how you accept that stressful time.

The many experiences you share can cause you stress.

Pain in the chest, headaches, diarrhea, indigestion are causes of stress.

Worrying about the little issues that you make in your mind can cause you to be that stressful person.

Activities don't always relieve stress.

Sometimes activities can make you most stressful.

What some people think is a stress reliever, you may think is the opposite, or extremely stressful.

Individuals have unique interests and needs.

Does it mean if you do not have any symptoms then you don't have stress?

This is not true.

It takes time for stress to cloud your mind.

You start feeling fatigued, loss of memory, often forgetting where you left an object, and the lack of energy eventually gets to you.

The challenging time shows when you experience Chronic stress.

When you are affected with small stressful moments you are gradually faced with the Major stress.

Focus on the Minor stressful issues.


Constant tiredness.

Do you feel irritable or hot-headed?

Under a panic moment most men respond aggressively.

On the other hand, most women don't react in this way.

These men become hot-headed, and want to make a scene. While women are friendly and calm down.

Off-course, you will find that man and woman who reacts calm and quiet, or aggressive and fight off the other.

It is normal to behave this way.

Emotions cause you to breakdown.

A break up.


The loss of a job.

You can't have full control over what happens in every day events.

The weakness in you allows for such experiences.

You need social connection but stress is invited into your life under these circumstances.

For example:

The war between Croatia and Serbia twenty four years ago caused many individuals to be depressed and stressed from that tragedy.

Stressful situations exists and you can't ignore it.

Sacrifices are made for one another to prove good friendships.

People bond and speak of their experiences.

Acute Stress:

What does acute stress do to the body?

Acute stress allows the body to be in preparation for resisting the improved feedback and heightens awareness.

Chronic stress:

What does Chronic stress do to the body?

Chronic stress wears you down in time.

So, acute stress is experienced when you are in a vulnerable state of mind. A moment where you feel stressed about an event.

This happens in one-time experiences.

Chronic stress happens to you over time and stays with you each day.

Acute stress is a connection between people who share the same unpleasant events. They connect in kindness and care for one another.

You snap when everything falls on you.

Be it your sick parents, the children's needs, college fees, or work load, and you don't know what next.

Stress is good when you can control the situation.

For example:

When your teenager insists on roller skating.

To ride on a motorbike.

The opportunity to take part in sky diving.

As much as you want to grant that chance to your child, you just want it to be over with in a flash.

That moment can make you most stressful.

This happens when the stressful moment affects you physically or mentally.

It depends on how you perceive stress.

Little issues affect people in different ways.

The stressful moments are perceived from the history of your genes.

Challenges are not always handled anxiously.

You can alter your perceptions.

It doesn't matter how you were raised.

You can move to a positive mood to prevent stress from hurting you.


You fail to deliver and your get a headache from that.


Your mind-set allows for that to be when you are in front of an audience.

You can't handle every moment to perfection.

What makes you happier?

Giving to others can change the way you think of others.

Reach goals and achieve a worthy lifestyle.

Do something good for yourself.

Sleep is important get enough of sleep to balance out your lifestyle.

Be active daily.

Are you often upset about an event?

Are you not able to control the important to-do list?

Do you feel nervous about the smallest issues?

Are you a confident person?

Do you feel nothing is going your way?

Are you irritated by everything in your life?

Do you feel you are not on top of issues at home?

Are you working too many long hours in your day job?

How do you overcome constant anger?

I coped with stressful moments in a positive way.

What is the upside of stress?

Stressful moments can have a negative impact on your daily schedule.

You fail to think as your abilities are weak.

To work under-pressure in a tough situation you can feel flat out.

People who are threatened by a situation perform better.

Did you perform better in a stressful situation?

How do couples cope with stress?

Couples have their fair share of stress levels.

The stressful day-to-day lives grow between them.

Normal daily activities can affect couples.

If not work issues, then a simple argument over a planned event can cause a stressful moment.

Always look for an answer to cope with the stressful moments.

Most couples don't know how to meet the needs of each other.

Often there is no time for each other.

Everything depends on the events and of such situations.

Stress can drive a couple apart.

One needs to tolerate each other in such times.

A laugh is good!

How do you handle stress?

People are alarmed by stress.

Focus on what is important to you.

Don't let stress take over your lifestyles.

A balanced lifestyle can bring great rewards to manage your daily schedules.

Be open to experiences.

Find yourself and be the original one.

A positive lifestyle can get you pass that obstacle.

Confide in someone and let out whatever is bothering you.

During stressful times try not to make the situation a permanent one. Search for what makes you happy.

Happiness is crucial to every being.

Allow for short vacations.

Plan your trip with positive people and relax when you are away.

Don't feel bad if you did not meet your goals in time you will have that moment.

Forget about everything and everyone around you. Put yourself first and take care of you. Only you can take care of your needs.

Cope with stress

Stress hurts you

Do you Perform better in a Stressful Situation?

      I used to love my high stress job and considered the stress an energizer oftentimes, but when I was diagnosed with MS I found that the stress made my physical symptoms worse. I love my low key lifestyle now.

      There are a lot of forms of stress and I think you covered them all here. I have to admit that I have a fear of failure and it stresses me out sometimes. Reading articles like yours reminds me that I need to work on getting better at managing my stress level about failure.

      I find that writing is very good for stress, because it takes our minds to different places, away from the source of stress. Hard physical labor is also good, such as painting or perhaps gardening. Great hub!

      Stress is indeed a tremendous inhibitor to performance but lately, I have tried to change my mental pattern and it works when I shift to thinking only of the positive. There are times when I give in to stress but with age, it is not that often.

      I like what you said, "The moment you connect negative energy with stress you fail." Stress can be positive, as it gives us a reason to become a better person, and we respond to the challenge. When we see the event as negative, this response usually carries with it physical nuances that change how we feel about ourselves. We may become physically or emotionally ill, and have to back off from the situation until we can handle it better.

      Stress is an unavoidable part of today's life but I guess we all have to tame it to remain senile. Nice thoughts...

      I would venture to guess that stress is one of the greatest health risk factors. This is informative and needed badly.
