SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT STRESS, AND HOW WE CAN HELP



Tunnel through trees

Both in our personal lives, and also in our workplace, we frequently encounter stress and stressful situations. Stress can be a positive force; we all need a certain amount of stress in order to function and be well. Often, though, its effects can be experienced as wholly negative.

When we're stressed, we feel ill, frightened, unable to think, paralyzed, we want help but we don't know how to reach out. Everything feels overwhelming, and we find it hard to get our fears and worries in perspective. We can become isolated, alone, withdrawing from love and support even when it's offered. We're just running scared. The dominant feeling is one of being completely out of control and on our own.

The symptoms of stress itself can be extremely frightening too. We find we can't think or concentrate. We can find ourselves with a constantly unsettled tummy, digestive problems and no appetite. We start to notice pain, often headaches, neck and muscle pain from holding ourselves tense. Sometimes we start to have palpitations or difficulty regulating our breathing. Panic starts to crash over us in waves and we can be shocked to experience panic attacks. Our sleep often becomes disturbed and unsatisfying, and suddenly we're in a cycle we don't know how on earth to stop.

We find ourselves saying, 'How did it get to this?' or 'This isn't who I am. Sometimes we feel we don't know or recognise ourselves anymore. Nothing feels right but we don't know how to begin to express just how confused and frightened we feel. Those around us don't know how to help or what to say, and can sometimes back away or become frustrated because we can seemunreachable.

We know something's got to change, but we're at a loss to know where to begin.







Beach at dusk

Stress has many causes, and can present itself in many different ways. However, always at the heart of stress is a message that says something needs to change.

The signs that we've reached a point at which everything is telling us that something needs to change are often physical ones, like those we've mentioned above. However, they can also show themselves in our emotional life or in our behaviour. We can find ourselves tearful and low, or angry and snappy and on a really short fuse. Sometimes we want to blame someone, but don't know who, so we end up taking it out on those close to us, or even complete strangers.

Whatever the particular symptoms, and however it happens to present itself, you're receiving important signals that something in your life is not okay. That might be something current, or it might be something that happened in the past that seems to be coming up to the surface right now. Or it might be worries about the future, or a decision or major life change that's on our mind and will give us no peace. Being unhappy or dissatisfied with our lives, or some particular aspect of it, is another common cause of stress, as is fear of initiating change. Whichever way we look at things, we feel stuck and helpless.
