Let's Find Out! Stress Is a part of life that can either help us learn and grow, or it can present significant problems.
Stress releases powerful neurochemicals and hormones that prepare us for action (to fight or flee). If action is not taken and it builds up inside that stress can lead to health problems. Different types of stress are; prolonged, uninterrupted, unexpected, and unmanageable.
Stress can be managed with; regular exercise, meditation or other relaxation techniques, structured time outs, and learning new how to cope for more predictability in our lives.
Using drugs, pain medicines, alcohol, smoking, and eating can make the stress worse, and can make us more susceptible for more stress. Managing stress depends on the willingness of a person to make the changes necessary for a healthy lifestyle.
