Stress is an integral part of our lives. Stress is the body’s reaction to situations in which we cannot effectively deal with problematic matters, situations, and phenomena that surround us and that we experience.
Stress can be positive or negative. We talk about positive stress when we think about mobilizing stress, when adrenaline is often involved, which makes it easier for us to perform a task. We know this feeling, e.g. before an exam, an important conversation, or a speech. However, the stress becomes negative when it is prolonged ande exhausts us physically and mentally. In this case, stress has a very negative effect on our body, it devastates us. Chronic stress can manifest itself in the form of anxiety states, mental breakdowns or mood disorders. In dermatology, it is of key importance in symptomatic treatment as a factor causing somatic symptoms. It is often said about hair falling out of stress.
How to deal with everyday life when we are constantly in a hurry, when there are many things on our heads? To manage stress and increase your sense of control, focus on the things you have to do at given moment. Don’t think about what’s in line, what’s in arrears. Think about what is important to you here and now. Knowing how to use your own time is also invaluable. Therefore
, in a situation where you are tired of a high level of negative stress, when you feel mentally exhausted and your body shows you that something is wrong, it is worth asking yourself a few questions. Answer honestly in your conscience. Are you making good use of your time? How do you deal with the organization of time? Do you take responsibility only for the matters entrusted to you, or also for those for which someone else is responsible? Can you set limits? Do you turn to others for help early enough? And are you asking the right people for help? Do you talk to others about stressful situations and problems? Do you give yourself the right to rest? How do you rest? When was the last time you did something nice for yourself? These are a few simple questions that often allow us to assess what areas of our life are stress generators and what we should work on. Small changes can bring huge effects that completely change the quality of life.
