Managing Stress and Fatigue – Article for Everyone

Managing stress and fatigue is often a matter of understanding stress.
"Signs and Symptoms, Causes of Stress" is an article by this author that
offers simple insights into the true meaning of stress. Whether it is
family stress, workplace stress, or stress among children and students,
managing stress and fatigue will begin with an understanding that stress
is your response to stressors. You may not be able to manage the stressor
itself, but you can manage your response. You can respond positively,
resulting in beneficial eustress, or negatively, resulting in
debilitating distress.

For example, efforts to stop smoking frequently generate a need for
managing stress and fatigue. The stress is not the fact that you cannot
smoke when you want to smoke. That is the stressor. On the one hand, your
response to that stressor can be one of delight that you are finally
going to kick the habit. Such a response will be beneficial stress that
empowers you to refrain from smoking. On the other hand, your response
may be a desire to fight against your determination to quit. You may
respond inwardly that it is too difficult and too tiring. You become
depressed by the situation. Such debilitating stress, i.e. response to
stressors, can cause fatigue.

Managing stress and fatigue is a matter of playing both ends against the
middle.

1. Fatigue can often be the cause of stress, since we are less able to
respond appropriately when we are tired. Sufficient rest is key in
managing stress at any level. Setting regular sleep hours, and adhering
to them, can relax the mind, emotions, and physical body, making them
ready to deal with stressors.

2. Stress can often be the cause of fatigue. Responding to stressors with
debilitating distress drains the body of energy and leaves an individual
lethargic. Responding with beneficial eustress fills the body with energy
and happiness. Managing stress with eustress will usually result in a
reduction of fatigue.
Helpful Tip

Beware of articles on managing stress and fatigue that lead you to
believe you can only manage after stress and fatigue have occurred. Many
seem to believe that managing stress and fatigue is a matter of locking
the barn door after the horse has gotten out and is racing across the
fields. Managing stress and fatigue requires a proactive approach. Gain
an understanding of stress and fatigue, and build guards into your life
so that you can respond with eustress.
