Stress is a normal component of the body's response to demands that are placed on it. When we are frightened or angry, the body responds to this stress with a number of physical reactions that prepare it for action. Factors that trigger this stress response are known as stressors.
Stressors are encountered in almost every aspect of our lives. Excess stress, or distress, has been identified as an important factor in many types of illness. Heart disease is one of the health effects that have been linked to excessive stress. Workplace stressors can lead to distress because they are, in many cases, beyond the individual's control. And the individual may be exposed to the same stressors day after day.
Occupational stress is often the combined effect of several stressors. The health effects of different stressors cannot be easily separated. Nonetheless, an understanding of the different types of stressors is essential to recognising, assessing and controlling these potential hazards. Workplace stressors include physical and organisational factors.
"Stress does not exist outside of your mind or body"
If it did then how can one person be totally stressed out by something, yet it doesn't bother someone else?
Please try these simple exercises:
Just imagine stepping in the shoes and seeing the world through the eyes of someone who doesn't care what's happening to themselves, others or anything that's going on around them, someone who hasn't got any morals, values, scruples, and no concept of what's right or wrong, good or bad, no internal conflict, just couldn't give a ______monkeys
Imagine what they would see, hear, say to themselves, or even feel
Do you think they would suffer from stress?
I am not suggesting you go around thinking like the person above (for obvious reasons). What I am saying is it's far easier to manage your own state, and change your perception of the outside world (or more specifically the problem) rather than trying to change the outside world or the problem itself!
Imagine stepping in the shoes and seeing through the eye's of someone who is the total opposite to the person above, but this person really loves a challenge, imagine looking at your problem through the eyes of someone like this
Do you think it would affect them in the same way it does you?
Imagine stepping out of yourself (dissociate) and looking at yourself, notice how you feel about your situation now
You may find it doesn't bother you so much
It's all down to how you perceive yourself, the outside world, and how you store those structured thought patterns in your mind (i.e. what and how you see, hear and feel things on the inside), which is how it affects you
So if you feel totally stressed out, what can you do about it?
NLP or Hypnosis can quickly and easily (within minutes) help you manage your state, change how you see, hear and feel about things, and even help change your perception of that 'something' that was bothering you, so you don't stress yourself out about it again
Panic Attacks are episodes of severe, terrifying emotion. They may appear "out of the blue". If they occur regularly enough they are termed Panic Disorder with or without Agoraphobia. Agoraphobia is a fear of being in a place where panic might occur and from where escape is difficult. A supermarket queue is a nightmare to a person with Agoraphobia. Panic attacks may also occur with other forms of anxiety.
