Depression, anxiety, tension and many other human feelings and reactions are generalized under a broad heading of stress. Thus it appears that stress originates in our mind from external occurrences. Also there is a possibility of stressful condition developing due to malfunction within our own body. Stress has been simply defined as our body’s way of responding to any kind of demand and threat (fight or flight).
In some situations feeling stressed could be a positive response that enables us to do things fast and efficiently. If stress lingers on it takes a toll on our body. Stress affects thought feeling behavior and the entire body and unless it is checked it can create long lasting problems.
Stress causes a major release of adrenaline and cortisol. If stressful situation continues for long the body begins to adapt to high level of stress hormones causing more anxiousness, fatigued and becomes prone to mood swings. In majority cases this kind of situation leads to weight gain, sleep loss, high blood pressure, leading onto serious diseases and in extreme cases death.
Often we hear people (mainly vulnerable) start addictive habits of drinking, smoking and other addictions to escape depression and insecurity under extreme pressure of stress. They also start binge eating, often choosing unhealthy fast food under a false dilution of escaping from stress.
Unfortunately medical world has so far not found a sure cure for stress. Though the doctors are prescribing temporary release medicine for the symptoms of stress such as anxiety or depression.
It is sad that most patients in mental institute are not really raving mad but suffering from false feeling of intense stress.
By now it should be clear that stress is mind centric. Thus we must put great importance to mental health, if we are to find a cure for stress.
