Even although I had a medical background, I was not fully aware how stress could have a major impact on our bodies. Working full-time as well as caring for my mother, I found myself under stress and did not recognise my behaviour at times or did not know what to do. I starting to research the subject and found a Diploma in Stress Management course which I thought would help me and in turn help others.
At the time I was having frequent headaches and heartburn as well as a frozen shoulder which was taking a long time to improve. I did not realise that my symptoms were due to stress. It was a few years later that I realised what had caused the stress. It had been due to excessive pressure at work along with cultural and leadership issues within the organisation. This along with caring for my mother had caused my stress over a period of time. Since that time, I have made sure that I do not let stress affect me and if I do feel under stress, I now know what to do and what will help me almost instantly.
With the pace of our lives, stress is part of our everyday life and it is essential that you can recognise it in yourself and know how you can manage and cope with it effectively. Stress is affecting most of us because of the speed of life, and it is caused by too much pressure.
Stress means that we get to a certain point when we are unable to cope with pressure; this is often the case with demands at work and at home, as well as those of everyday life.
