Stress and Stress Management

From irritability, an upset stomach, high blood pressure, headaches, difficulty concentrating to muscular tension, the manifestations of stress are as wide and varied as its root causes. Stress can be caused by certain situations and beliefs that are perceived to be negative. If left unchecked and unmanaged, it can lead to a palpable deterioration in one’s quality of life. However, with the right guidance and therapy, patients can be taught to manage stress thereby regaining quality of life over time.


Stress and anxiety share common symptoms, but are not necessarily the same thing. Anxiety can be caused by one’s family history, genetics, temperament, or a combination of these factors. At its worst, it can become unrelenting, impossible to control, and ultimately interfere with one’s ability to perform everyday tasks, developing into a disorder. Despite the severity of these symptoms, anxiety disorders are highly treatable and respond well to interventions.


Depression is typically characterized by feelings of sadness or disinterest that lasts over two weeks and affect one’s ability to function normally. Common therapies for dealing with depression are psychotherapy and medication. Among the mental disorders, it is the most treatable with as many as 80 to 90 percent of patients responding positively to treatment and the majority finding some relief from its symptoms.
