How to Deal with Stress Effectively

Updated on February 18, 2016

Stress at work

With many jobs stress is just a fact of life. And there are many reasons it is espectially stressful in caregiving jobs such as the life and death responsibilities caregivers face daily, the difficult work, the long hours and more. The stress of the job is the biggest reason caregivers leave there job, Too much stress can cause health problems because certain hormones are released in your body which can cause increased blood pressure and increased sugar levels. 75% to 95% of all Primary Care visits are stress related. stress has also been related to diabetes, arthritis, cancer, heart disease and Alzheimers.

Managing stress

The first step in managing stress is to pinpoint whats causing it. Stress is crying, loss of appettite, headaches, and oversleeping. Feelings of frusteration may go along with stress. Stress Management is the ability to maintain control when things in life make excessive demands.

When a situation arisis see if there is something you can do to change or control it. Remove yourself from the situation if only for a few moments or perminently. Some people often caused me alot of stress therefor they are no longer in my life.

Make sure to get plenty of rest because loss of sleep can make stress worse. if you are under alot of stress it is more likely you will not beable to sleep at night, then without enouph sleep you will be even more irritable an add even more stress.

Try to stop all the worrying. If you constantly have the "what ifs" and fears that are not productive, its time to stop. Constant worrying takes a toll on a person. It sends your anxiety levels sorring and can cause you to stay up at night. The good news is worring can be stopped, its a mental habit that you can learn to break by training your brain to stay calm and take a more posative outlook on life.

Everyone should take your vitamins. Low levels of certain vitamins mabe linked to stress levels. A vitamin B deficiency has been linked to nerve problems. Vitamin suppliments can be found at most grocery stores. Magnesium is also recommended since people who are under stress often have a deficiency.

 Sex is the best stress reliever for me. I feel so much better and more relaxed. I believe this is why people who are grouchie and moody are told they need to get alittle. Orgasm itself has many benifits for your health and for stress management.

      I find that it's difficult keeping all of the things that cause stress out, even the simple things like taking proper vitamins I neglect. I love sex as a stress reliever though!
