Stress

 

Normal levels of stress can help and motivate to be productive and efficient. Excessive stress however can be debilitating. When we feel under too much mental or emotional pressure, then the stress is excessive and unhelpful.

 

Stress can be caused by relationships, financial problems and work. Work-related stress is one of the major causes of sickness leave in the world. Symptoms of unhelpful stress can include the following:

You may not be sleeping well enough
You feel worried and anxious often
You lose your temper easily
You feel irritable and wound up
You may be eating less and have lost your appetite
You may have lost weight
You may have problems concentrating
You may have frequent colds and infections
You may have low self-esteem and have lost your confidence
You may be very sensitive to criticism
You maybe isolating yourself

Stress is very harmful when excessive and often requires help to manage it. Excessive stress can result in increased risk of physical illnesses like heart disease and diabetes. It can also lead to a wide array of mental illnesses including depression, anxiety and psychosis.

Effective help with stress is through a careful initial assessment by a Psychiatrist. The actual main treatment modalities for most people include counselling and CBT-based talking therapies. Psychologists and psychotherapists provide this treatment.
