It doesn’t mean exactly that, it doesn’t always mean you’re in a bad situation, sometimes stress can lead us to accomplish things more efficiently, but conversely, if the pressure is too much beyond the our tolerance level, it may cause an imbalance in the mental state of the mind to collapse in emotional, physical and psychological and may cause the various types of psychological or physical diseases. So it’s important to know what kind of pressure level is in your controllable range of stress relief.

You don’t have enough rest even though you may still be able to sleep late night. In the next day, you will still feel tired, headache, dizziness and so on. Long-term sleep deprivation will reduce your productivity, what’s even worse, reduces the immune ability of the body.
Often you can’t finish a task because you are interrupted by impatience. You are unable to focus on one thing. You just want to shift the pressure and do other things. The original task will never be done completely as planned.
Anxiety, Irritability, Anger
It’s really a mix stress symptoms. It’s easy to be nervous about things that haven’t happened, and always worry about bad things. On the other hand, sometimes the pressure makes people to become emotion, want to argue with the people you dislike. You may even have a bad appetite, palpitation, Chest pain and stomach pain kind of issues.

Effects of stress
How will your body react when you catch a bus or subway? You must feel your heart beating faster, blood pressure rising, this is the body’s natural response. Whether you catch the car or stress at work, your heart and breath will return to normal.
But if you’re under pressure for a long time, it’s not the same. Persistent stress can cause anxiety, muscle tension, rising blood pressure and indigestion, which are difficult to eliminate in the short term. More and more people find it difficult to relieve stress by themselves, and they are often in a state of tension. For example, many people feel that their job has no potential for growth, but they cannot change the status quo. How does this stress affect your body and your health?
The answer is not totally true!
“How much pressure have you suffered over the past year” a research report asked 30,000 adults in the U.S. And “Do you believe that stress is harmful to health? “And it took eight years to keep track of the 30,000 populations to see whether the” people believe that stress is harmful to health “can lead to real impact in the health.
The results of the study show that people who have been under great stress over the past year have increased their risk of death by 43%, but the results apply only to those who believe that stress is harmful to health. Other people who are under great stress but do not think that stress is harmful to their health are even less likely to die than those who take a little bit of stress but think that stress is bad for their health.
When Health psychologist Kelly McGonigal found out about the findings, she started to think whether it makes people healthier simply by changing people’s perception of stress? Scientific experiments have shown that when people change their perceptions of stress, the body’s response to stress changes. If you change your negative perceptions of stress, your cardiovascular state will be healthier, as you are experiencing a happy and courageous time.
How to manage stress – stress buster
To clarify the causes of stress Stress is like a weigh. Its proportion to the degree of how you care about it. If it’s not a big deal, you won’t be so worried. The stress itself is not a problem. You don’t need stress relief toys. The question is: what are the stimuli that make you nervous and worried?” The key is to clarify the source of stress so that you can jump out of the mood of apprehension and to eliminate the stress from the fundamental source.
Pick what you can do, what you can’t do The vast majority of people, are wasting too much energy on the things that they can’t change and they feel helpless. You can prepare your stress list and divide it into 2 categories of your stressful situation: one that you can control and one that you can’t control. For the part that you can’t do, they are beyond your control, cross them out, and simply let them go. For the part that can be done, take practical action to change what is possible and to counter unnecessary fears.
Transformation of stress
How you look at stress determines how stress affects you. Treating stress as a threat, stuck in negative emotions, only paralyzes your head and you don’t see other opportunities even though there can be more than one.
The author of “Before Happiness”, Shawn Achor, has done a research about the change in the results by simply changing people’s perspective. The results are 37% increase in sales and 31% increase in productivity.
Try to change the way you treat stress, be self confident, keep the positive energy and you will have the power to solve any problems.

Take a break
This is the method I like most and I always do. It means mindfulness based stress reduction. The body is often involuntary tension and fatigue under stress. It gets accumulated into greater stress. Give yourself a period of time, even if only five minutes, to put aside the annoying task at hand from the inside out to concentrate on relaxing completely. Alternatively, have a habit of exercising regularly is also a good way to reduce stress. Relaxation is the key for you to walk longer.
