Do you feel stressed all day? Do you want to start feeling better, even if you’re completely overwhelmed?
It all seemed routine, but something was building.
Coming into your office, your boss adds another project to your plate and moves up the deadline on another. Ever since your coworker left, everyone’s been picking up the slack…a string of long days and constant deadlines. It hasn’t been an easy month, but that’s work, right?
Unfortunately, so. A staggering 80% of Americans report being stressed at work regularly.
You’re upbeat and calm in the exchange, but once they’re gone, you feel a shortness of breath and notice your heart rate has crept up. You laugh it off, blaming your excessive affinity for coffee, and get back into it. No time to waste.
Finally, you get to a stopping point you can live with. And after sitting in some routine traffic, you get home…to an empty table. You do a mental inventory to figure out the fastest thing you can make.
Your spouse is nowhere to be found, and your child wanders in with a test from school covered in red ink and tears streaming down their face. Dinner’s going to have to wait. But not the wine.
Getting everything ready for the next day, you notice yourself getting tense. You’re tired and just need to get to bed. But lying down, worries start popping up. Why can’t your child grasp these basic math principles? How are you going to get that new project done? Why is your spouse so distant?
You wake up with a start before your alarm. Feeling tired, you notice a sniffle. That’s not a cold, is it!? You tell yourself it’s not and keep moving. No time to waste.
Stress is our response to demands and perceived threats in our environment and has become so routine we just accept the burden as normal.
75% of Americans report significant stress in the last month. And for half of them, it's getting worse.
While temporary stress can be helpful, prolonged stress is detrimental.
Beyond simply increasing your heart rate and blood pressure, chronic stress diminishes your immune system and increases inflammation. Your performance could start to suffer. It’s common to feel tired and anxious. What’s more, physical and mental health issues may start cropping up.
Usually, the problem is a perfect storm of ongoing, external stressors and inadequate coping mechanisms. Fortunately, you can learn constructive responses and relaxation techniques that don’t take long to do and make things manageable again.
