Hi, guys. When any one raises this question, first you feel what a silly question. Then when are going to answer there is a great dilemma between what answer to be given.
Before going into stress. We shall start from basic.
We shall move to next definition Health.
What is health???
- The state of being well
- The absence of diseases or ill health.
- Keeping body and mind fit.
- Health implies to both body and mind.
- The body should be free from diseases and mind should be relaxed and free from stress.
What is Stress???
Stress kills many people. Every year International Labour Organization-ILO celebrates health and safety at work day on April 28 to promote the prevention of accidents and occupational diseases globally.
The theme for 2016 world day for health and safety at work is WORKPLACE STRESS. A COLLECTIVE CHALLENGE.
It clearly stresses how serious is this work place stress.
So we shall discuss stress in a detailed manner.
Stress is an adverse reaction people have to excessive demands or pressures placed on them.
Stress is not a disease or an illness but it is the natural reaction to pressure. But unrelieved stress can result in diseases and will contribute to poor work performance.
Stress can cause the wide range of effects. It can cause physical and psychological effects.
It is very easy to identify the person under stress.
The symptoms shall be increased sweating, Head Aches, blurred vision, skin rashes
The behavioral changes due to stress shall be
- Increased smoking
- Increase alcohol consumption
- Loss of appetite or over eating
- poor concentration and difficulty in sleeping.
If the pressure remains for long period of time then the following things can occur
- Anxiety and depression
- High blood pressure
- Heart Disease
- Erectile dysfunctions in men
- Irregular menstrual cycle in women.
So to avoid this keep yourself relaxed, stay cool and spend some leisure time on your interest.
Read books, listen to music, watch fish and flowers, enjoy the rain and somehow release your stress.
Don’t allow stress to kill or over come. Handle stress with care.
Think and make a decision whether to take a stressed path or relaxed way.
