A useful website- how stressed are you?
Just a quick post I thought would be helpful :).
If you’re feeling particularly anxious (could be the time of year, even), are stressed more at the moment, or if stress is part of your day-to-day life and you’d like to get to grips with it…or tackle it better, whatever the reason, this website does a good job outlining it! HelpGuide .
I already knew about The Stress Response in our bodies, and you might be interested in the beginning bit- but you don’t have to read the ‘What is stress?’ section (which discusses this).
If you would like to get a bit of information and an idea, I’d say read the intro paragraph, and have a look at the two sections:
‘How do you respond to stress?’ and ‘How Much Stress is Too Much?’ Which lists things that can help; I believe that learning about stress and what we can do to make it better will empower people so that it’s manageable! Stress can be a weapon/tool, if we know how to deal :D!
‘ Signs and Symptoms of stress Overload'(a graph pictured below, with the original bit of text quoted to be safe : ) is another bit to look at ^~^.
Signs and Symptoms of stress Overload
The more signs you have the closer to overload!
“Keep in mind that the signs and symptoms of stress can also be caused by other psychological or medical problems. If you’re experiencing any of the warning signs of stress, it’s important to see a doctor for a full evaluation. Your doctor can help you determine whether or not your symptoms are stress-related.”- quoted from the website Help Guide .org
Afterwards, or another time, if (especially) you have these signs and symptoms- or tend to, you could use the quiz and keep reading :).
Hope it helps!
