Stress is an emotional, and sometimes physical, response to dangers and challenges. It’s completely normal to experience stress at certain times in your life.
Stress isn’t always bad; it can make you alert and motivated. But the dark side of stress is quite serious because it can become overwhelming and debilitating. The two main forms of stress are:
Acute stress comes and goes quickly. You might feel incredibly stressed before giving a speech, when you have an argument with your partner, or when you’re in the midst of a big move.
The stress can be quite intense in the moment, but it goes away after you’ve dealt with the stress-provoking situation.
Chronic stress can happen when you have an ongoing situation like an unhappy relationship, threats of losing your job, or a chronic illness. With long-term situations, the stress doesn’t really fade — and it can pile up and cause great distress and physical problems if you don’t get help.
Recent information from the American Psychological Association shows that more than a quarter of adults aren’t able to function due to stress.
When stress hinders your daily life, causes you to change your behavior, or feels like it never goes away, it’s time to seek help. If you don’t manage your stress, you could be at risk for an anxiety disorder that may cause even more difficult symptoms.
Stress management therapy helps you find the causes of your stress and change the way you react to stressors. The experienced clinicians at Spectrum Behavioral Health LLC have specialized training in the therapy modalities that are most effective for stress, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness.
When you’re stressed, your stressors are running your life. With therapy, you can be the one in control. While stress management can’t eliminate all stressors from your life, it can give you incredibly useful tools to deal with those stressors and protect your mental and physical health.
If you find yourself on edge and constantly stressed, you don’t have to go through it alone. Spectrum Behavioral Health LLC has trained clinicians who are waiting to help you conquer stress.
