Stress and Stressors We all have to deal with stress everyday of our lives. We all have stressors that cause panic attacks, phobias, and anxiety. When we are stress, we often feel pressure, anxiety, muscle tension, disturbance in breathing, frigidity, restless, hyperactive, and so forth. We can also feel irritable, on the edge, and have difficulty focusing on our responsibilities. Stress in small doses can be a good thing, but when a person is overwhelmed they are often less productive. This will create additional problems, simply because the mind is chaotic and the responsibilities are placed on hold. Some people will fall into procrastination, or putting off tasks entirely. If stress is a major problem in your life it could also lead to a nervous breakdown, which is commonly known as a temporarily mental breakdown. This means that your coping skills, yet you have an ability to learn new habits that can benefit your life and stress capabilities. This also means that you are undergoing a temporarily crisis that is overwhelming, making you vulnerable to stress. For example, if you are currently filing for a divorce we know that stress and stressors will crop up. This can overwhelm a person and cause them to breakdown temporarily. Do not feel alarmed, since this is common, however you may need temporarily counseling to get you back on track. In this instance, you are not mentally ill; rather you are going through some hard times in life. You can also make up a list of the problems you are facing and diverse a strategy that helps you to weed through the problems one at a time. Once you make you list and divert a plan to work through the problems take a few deep breaths and consider how you can work through each problem sufficiently without further complicating your life. For example if you are going through a divorce you know it is too late to turn back, since there has been a breakdown in the marriage beyond your control. Do not sit and ponder on what you could have done differently to avoid the problem. The problem in the past is now out of your hands. You will make your list now and focus on what you need to do next to eliminate the stress and stressors. Ok, so you are nervous about attending court meetings. Court is a normal establishment that was constructed to provide justice. If you think of court as a source of trouble then you are walking in a door with blind folds on. The court is a good place to visit when you need help. Courts will protect you, instruct you, and provide you a means to tell your story. Do not think of all the people observing you, rather think of it as an experience. If you go to court then you can observe and see how things are done, so if it comes to this again you will be prepared. If you see the pattern, positive thinking is essential for dealing with stress and stressors. You can also sit down for a few minutes and review your list to see if any decisions on your part can benefit your problems. Avoid allowing emotions to rule your thinking. Emotions play a large role in stress management. If you are angry, do not dwell on the anger; rather wait for an opportunity to present itself. When the opportunity presents itself make sure you take full advantage. Avoid any negative thinking that will only make you feel sad, hurt, and angry and so forth. If you flip the problem upside down, you will often see a positive solution in front of you. For example, you are getting a divorce. Many today are divorcing so you are not alone. Your future will present you more freedom to explore your new life. You might find that freedom was needed to help you determine where you belong in this world. You might even find that the single life is enjoyable if you learn to accept you, and realize that you are not depending on others, rather you are standing on your own two feet. Avoiding the stress and stressors can make all the difference to a life.
