Some Stress
Strategies for College Students and Others

 

Stress is a physical response. When
stressed, the body think it is under attack. It is the war one reacts
physically, mentally and emotionally to the various conditions. Stress is the
debilitating effect caused by constant pressure both at work and home are a
modern phenomenon. Almost any change in the environment even a pleasant change
such as picnic or vacation demands some stress and little stress is useful in
helping us to adapt-or-adjust, sometimes a person gets used to the change or
reorganizes himself for such conditions. He develops suitable ways to overcome
changing conditions, as his/her motivational property of certain emotions. Such
adaptive behavior adds color and spice to living and adds pleasure to our
lives. But beyond some point, stress becomes the distress. What acts to produce
distress varies greatly from person to person. We civilized members of western
culture, think of ourselves as rational beings (means balanced and reasonable)
who go about satisfying our motives in an intelligent way. Most of our affairs
of everyday life are tinged with feelings and emotion like joy and sorrow,
excitement and disappointment, love and fear, attraction and repulsion, hope
and dismay, all these and many more are feelings, we often experienced in the
course of a day. When our emotions are too intense and too easily aroused, they
can easily get us into trouble and make us as miserable as if we were sick with
fever. As the severity of life-crisis increases from mild to severe,
susceptibility to illness rises progressively.
