All of us experience stress at some time during our lives.   What we feel as ‘stress’ is our body’s mental or physical response - either positive or negative, to something outside ourselves that puts pressure on our normal coping mechanisms.   Positive stress is usually short lived and can be beneficial. For example, if we choose to undertake a challenge, such as a bungee jump or a public performance, we're more likely to experience the stress as a form of exhilaration or excitement, which leaves us feeling good after the event. Negative stress on the other hand, is usually more prolonged, and results when our normal coping abilities are repeatedly challenged on a day-to-day basis, perhaps in a demanding work or domestic situation. If we can see no apparent end to these pressures upon us, and we don’t take steps to manage our stress effectively, the chronic stress that results starts to wear us down, both mentally and physically. Over time, our body's own natural healing ability decreases and we become more prone to illness, disease and psychological disorders.   Even just asking for help can make a difference to how we feel. There's now a wide range of help available to assist us in coping with the ever increasing demands made upon us, and there is no need to 'suffer in silence'. Stress Management practitioners usually offer a combination of techniques, tailored to the individual, which are designed to help you deal with and manage your stress effectively. These range from counselling, psychotherapy and other ‘talk’ therapies, to a relaxing massage with soothing oils, to help you unwind and get a good night's sleep.   Many practitioners also offer stress management strategies not only for the individual, but also in the workplace for organisations, aimed at both employee and management level. Studies have shown that people are increasingly suffering from stress in their place of work, so regular stress management practices put in place by employers can have a beneficial effect on staff morale and help reduce the number of days off lost through stress related illness. Effective stress management helps us all maintain a healthy mind and body, so that we're in a much better position to withstand any increase in the level of pressures we face.
