Stress has been described by the World Health Organisation as the major “health epidemic of the 21st century” and health experts believe that it may contribute to many life threatening illnesses such as diabetes, dementia and some types of cancer. In our busy high technological world people often describe themselves as being stressed in a way that is just a normal and accepted part of daily living.
In fact being under pressure can be a useful drive that helps us to take action, to feel more energised and to get results. However if we start to find ourselves becoming over whelmed with stress then these feelings can start to become a problem. We often start to develop symptoms which we associate with stress such as tiredness, headaches, an upset stomach, and aches and pains to name but a few. This is because when we start to feel stressed emotionally our bodies release hormones called cortisol and adrenaline. This is the body’s autonomic way of preparing to respond to a threat which is sometimes called the “fight or flight response”. If we often feel stressed then we will produce high levels of these hormones which can make us feel physically unwell and can affect physical and mental health on a longer term basis.
