Stress is usually used to describe the feelings people experience when the demands made on them are greater than their ability to cope.
Hypnotherapy, meditation and self-hypnotic techniques are extremely effective for dealing with tension, overwhelm and an inability to cope.
Modern life is increasingly demanding and for many of us living with stress has become commonplace.
Although a little pressure can be motivating the long term effects of stress are detrimental to happiness, health and wellbeing. Performance at work can be adversely affected, and the resulting tension, fatigue and irritability can also have a detrimental affect on relationships of all kinds.
Some of the common mental and emotional symptoms of stress are:
- Feeling overwhelmed
- Unable to concentrate
- Poor memory
- Anxiety and worry
- Moodiness and irritability
Physical and behavioural symptoms include feeling run down, aches and pains, rapid heart rate, stomach problems, changes in eating or sleep patterns, loss of libido, pacing, nail biting.
Too much stress over time will lead to an initial reduction in performance followed by overwhelm and an eventual complete inability to cope if the situation does not change or is not dealt with.
Stress may also lead to an increase in smoking, alcohol or drug use in an effort to relax or escape.
