What is Stress?

Everyone has experienced stress at somepoint, even if it’s just from entering the world crying in a stressful state after being expelled from our mother’s womb. Stress can come from many directions, and even just thinking about stress can stressful. That’s becuase stress is a message telling us that we are facing challenges and need to level up in some way.

Types of Stress

While the things that stress that stress us out can be unlimited, most stressful events can be classified into three primary categories as follows:

Mental Stress

Mental stress typically involves events or input that causes “noise” in the brain and prevents us from thinking clearly. Some examples include:

  • Difficult schoolwork assignments
  • Extremely demanding computer work
  • Tight deadlines and being forced to work “too fast”
  • Focusing on too many things at once
  • Buzzing, beeping and distracting noises

Emotional Stress

This type of stress involves events creating intense negative feelings that include guilt, shame, despair, pain, fear and loss. They include:

  • A beloved family or friend passing away
  • Divorce and partner breakups
  • Arguments with family/friends
  • Watching negative events on the news
  • Violent movies or television shows
  • Being betrayed by a trusted persion

Physical Stress

Physical stress includes events that directly affect the body and cause pain or disease. They include:

  • Car, bike, boat or other vehicle accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Chemical in the food or water
  • Air and water pollution
  • Chronic work-related injuries
  • Excess physical work
  • Insomnia
  • Drugs/Alcohol
  • Smoking

These list are definetely not exhaustive and many items from one list can overlap or cross over into another list.

For example, chronic stress from chemical in processed food will affect energy levels. This is a form of physical stress that may, in turn, affect work capacity. That could then cause someone to get fired from their job which can then bring on major emotional stress. Another example could be emotional stress from a bad relationship causing someone to overeat sweet foods that make them gain weight, which then can create stress on a physical level.

  1. Detox the Mind
    A good start for the most people is to detox the mind from unnecessary negativity that is adding to the naturally-occurring stress accumulates daily. Violence, drama, reality-TV and video games are fun at times, however few people realize how this content affects them physiologically. The same foes for the violence seen during non-stop 24 hour news cycle.

    Whether its truth or fiction, watching violence causes cortisol to rush through the body. While it’s not possible (or even necessary) to remove these influences completely, it can really help to be aware of what’s happening to the body while watching content of this nature and responding accordingly.

  2. Eat Healthy and Move Often
    Eating non-processed local food without chemicals is one of the first lines of defense against stress. Besides eliminating  blood sugar imbalances that can affect cognition, avoiding processed items is also wise because this type of food contains many toxins that can unnecessarily tax the systems of the body.

    Besides getting nutrition on point, exercise is also important because it encourages the release of  “feel-good” chemicals. Besides feeling better, a movement practice has also been shown to protect the brain from the negative effects of aging and to reduce the incidence of various neurological diseases.
