STRESS MANAGEMENT: How to Manage Stress For Good Controlling Your Emotions

Updated on May 13, 2016

...What happens in the mind of man is always reflected in the disease of is body...

René Dubos

Research confirms that our emotions have a dynamic effect on our health and vitality. The effects can be both, good and bad.

For you your emotions can act as stressor and create or add stress.

According to the 'stress father' Hans Selye, any stressor, imagined or real, can cause the certain range of reactions in our body. The reactions we know as fight or flight or stress reaction.

The word "emotion" arrives from the Latin word emovere, which means to agitate, to affect. Emotions make you human; provoke your reaction and your acting in every situation. Your emotions can be positive and pleasant or negative and painful.

The emotions play a crucial role in the stress response and consequently influences an overall health.

Danger of unreleased negative emotions

Emotions are controlled by your thoughts. No thought is free of emotional implications, and how you perceive what happens to you will determine whether these emotions will be stored and registered in the physical body.

It is very import to release our emotions, express, instead of store them, especially those negative ones. This is where the benefit of using stress management techniques comes in.

When you hold unreleased emotions you experience high level of prolonged stress and your body is in alarm state.

The human body is not built up to stay permanently in an alarm/stress state. The body systems need time to recover, need time to get back in balance.

In the situation of chronic stress recovery is not possible and the body goes into exhaustion stage: you become less able to resist new stressors, and your body has more difficulty returning to homeostasis - the state of wellbeing. This state is called burnout.

When the negative emotions become your 'daily bread', adrenal glands keep secreting stress hormones: adrenalin and cortisol.

Constantly high stress hormone level leads to various negative effects. Some very important functions that keep the body healthy begin to shut down, which manifests in multiple diseases. Chronic stress symptoms affect all body systems and speeds premature aging.

Good news

The human body has some ability to heal itself.

When you learn to prevent stress and practice stress management techniques you simply mobilize the body's own resources and release its natural healing ability.

You are responsible for your stress level and your own health. Health is the state of balance and equilibrium in the body; it is that great feeling of happiness and fulfillment that gives an ability to explore the life in all its beauty, enjoy longevity.

You are responsible to control your thinking patterns to make them work for you by inducing the positive emotions, rather than working against you by inducing undesired and negative emotions.

Your attitude is the key.

When you learn to take life as it comes, with pace and tolerance, when you feel calm and think positive and keep your eyes on a positive focus, you allow a law of attraction work in your life and your body itself to take care and to readjust its health.
