Stress is harmful to our health

Stress is harmful to our health

Stress is everywhere and affects multiple biological systems. In the long run, it can damage our health.

  • Stress is harmful because even after the initial stress, it may continue to influence how we think, feel, and behave.
  • Worry is also linked to poor sleep, unhealthier eating and substance abuse.

This suggests that reducing stress could be powerful to reduce the harm to health.

Reducing worry and rumination

Multiple studies found several psychological interventions for overcoming worry and rumination that can be divided into seven broad types:

  • Action planning, such as an appointed worry time.
  • Stress management, such as focusing on the more controllable aspects of life.
  • Mindfulness and relaxation.
  • Psychological detachments, such as switching off from situations like work.
  • Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
  • Expressive writing about one's thoughts and feelings.
  • Pain management.

Make a worry plan

Create a specific plan about when you are going to engage in worrying. This helps you to stick to it when it gets difficult. It also helps to reduce the potential short-term threat to your health, such as increased heart rate and blood pressure.

  • Schedule a limited time each day during which you allow yourself to think about what is worrying you.
  • Consider writing down your worries at planned times. The problem often looks less threatening when you can see it in black and white.

Acceptance and control

Remember that you cannot be perfect all the time. Recognise which of your worries you can realistically do something about and which are not in your control.

How to do that:

  • Create a list. Seeing your worries on paper can help in identifying which tasks are important, which are achievable, and which are out of your control.
  • Acceptance. Open up to difficult feelings and learn how not to overreact to them.
  • Interrupt the habit of worry. When you notice yourself worrying, tell yourself something like "Save if for later' or 'It will get done.'

Find time to switch off

Only focusing on work can lead to burnout, mental fatigue and physical problems arising from stress. Research shows that finding the time to switch off from work is vital to your long-term health.

How to do that:

  • Detach yourself from your worries. Listen to music, read a book, do some restful breathing exercises.
  • Use your senses. When you feel stressed, spend five minutes paying attention to your breathing or moving your body.
  • Get active. Exercise and limited intake of sugar, alcohol and caffeine contribute to a more positive state of mind.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
