How to combat stress

Self awareness
The following stress relief technique and tips are extracts from my self help website www.click2revive.com.uk

Discussing your problems with a GP or trained therapist will help.

1. Eat properly good nutrition is a must, extra vitamin C & B complex can help as these vitamins are used in greater quantities by the body when under stress. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, cut down on coffee and soft drinks.
2. Get plenty of exercise, fresh air, laughter & fun
3. Avoid useless and needless stress learn relaxation or meditation
4. When away from work: practice letting the phone ring, go on with whatever you are doing, by refusing to respond to the phone call you are in fact breaking the response and learning how to relax. If at first you find it impossible to ignore the urge to respond, delay it by counting to ten before you act, this breaks up the automatic workings of conditioning allowing you to be in control.
5 Use the same method of counting to ten when you are tempted to become angry, by holding off emotions of fear, panic or anger you may be able to break the automatic reflex completely.
6 By turning off your mobile phone you will give your mind and body a rest you have programmed your mind, it is on constant alert to answer that call.
7. Find that quiet place within yourself to help distance you from the stress of the moment, practice in your mind sitting on a sunny beach and feeling the warmth of the sun on your face, you will soon find that it becomes easier to get away from stress.

How the body deals with stress

The reaction to stress is controlled mainly by three tiny glands: Two adrenals which sit on top of the kidneys and the pituitary which is situated under the brain. They produce unbelievably potent hormones which exercise a huge influence on vital body functions. It is the task of these hormones to combat stress and fight off any threat to the body’s welfare.
The glands attempt to adjust to the constant demands of stress, they pour out excess hormones to keep the body going and for the best part they succeed. However there is only so much this defence mechanism can stand and with time this will start to fail and break down.
The body has a great ability to adapt using other mechanisms for a while but there is a knock on effect and soon blood pressure rises, disease and other complaints may then develop and if stress is not controlled your life may well be at stake.

When you as a boss can see that your staff start to get stressed by the amount of work that may have to do. Then the cause of this effect will in turn not help in the production of there work.

What to do about stress

How stress starts

Fear, anxiety, anger, in-security, hostility and panic are all caused by our own learned responses, and are not caused by any external stimuli.

From the day you are born to the day you die your body remembers everything you do.

Response means tension for example: tension in muscles is a preparation for action.

So when you are relaxing at home and the phone rings, why is it you jump up without thinking and rush to answer the call?

The phone itself has no power to make you move. “Has it”?

For example at work you answer the phone as soon as it rings, because you become conditioned to respond at once, for fear that you may lose that client or business contract, this is a stimulus that you have learned from habit and rush to answer the call no matter what situation you are in.

Research has been done that indicated there may be a common cause for almost all disease, be it a heart attack, skin complaints, breathing difficulty, or just the feeling of being sick. It is believed that the cause is an imbalance in the body’s chemical workings caused by stress.

When you as a boss can see that your staff start to get stressed by the amount of work that may have to do. Then the cause of this effect will in turn not help in the production of there work. So by having a day once a month of onsite massage therapist to come in to your office will help to relieve this stress.
