Stress Relief Through Drug-Free Treatment
Stress is contagious. According to research, people pick up the emotions of those around them and this includes stress. This emotion is especially contagious for people who are susceptible to depression and anxiety. Do you recall how one person is able to lighten the mood in a room through his humorous nature? This is the same way a dull person is capable of infecting others with their gloomy mood. This finding can be well elaborated by mirror neurons in the human brain.When we encounter people who are suffering from stress, these neurons hamper the lines of acting and seeing which ultimately passes on the emotion.
The effects of stress can be detrimental. Some of the common effects include: anxiety, allergies, restlessness, obsessive thoughts, upset stomach, migraines, and cardiovascular disease. During stressful moments your brain gets into a fight/flight mode and this prompts the release of hormones that cause your muscles to become tense, increases your heartbeat, and causes you to breathe faster. Stress also prompts the release of cortisol. When this hormone is released, you tend to crave for sugar and you are likely to gain weight due to a high sugar intake.
To fight against this reaction, take deep breathes. Slow inhales and exhales for 3-5 minutes. This will convert excess cortisone into insulin flows. Experts also recommend exercises, yoga, and gardening along with these breathing exercises.
Everyone deals with stress but the amount of stress you experience and how you deal with it will depend on your approach. Stress has different effects on one's mental and physical wellbeing.
