Stages Of Stress

It is natural to resist or deny the presence of stress. We all have a tendency to “plunge on,” working harder and harder to overcome stressful situations rather than to acknowledge the situation and “back off.” For example, sometimes in a stressful work environment, a person will return to the office night after night in an effort to deal with the stress. There comes a point when the mind and the body simply become exhausted. When this happens, efficiency decreases. Often, taking a break (i.e., doing something else, or getting away from the work) may be the most helpful way to relieve the stress.

Learning to identify the symptoms of stress and to recognize when resistance or denial is not helpful is essential. If we continue to experience stress and do nothing to alter the situation, it is likely we will develop physical problems such as exhaustion.
