Stress Drogheda Help with Hypnotherapy
We may think of stressful events as unpleasant ones, such as losing a job or having difficulties at home or at school. However, changes for the better can also cause stress, like a new baby, a wedding, and a new house. Stress is a psychological and physiological response to events that upset our personal balance in some way. When faced with a threat, whether to our physical safety or emotional equilibrium, the body’s defences kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” response.
We all experience stress at one time or another. Sometimes stress is the result of major changes in our lives. Such as redundancy, debts, wayward offspring, marriage or even moving home.
At other times stress can be more chronic in nature, meaning that the effects can be long lasting, having been initiated years ago. How many times have you had an unpleasant incident? The initial incident happens once, but every time you think about it, its happening all over again, and if you tell someone about it, its happening all over again! So by the end of the week, you may have experienced or relived the same incident hundreds of times! Is it any wonder your stressed over it? And yet it happened only once!
