STRESS





STRESS- is the body's reaction to a change that requires a physical, mental or emotional adjustment or response. Stress can come from any situation or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, nervous, or anxious.  Dealing with serious illness or caring for someone who is can cause a great deal of stress.

To get ride of stress one should love her/himself. The meaning of love is to be keen on oneself and care and adore others. If you love yourself then you love others.  Loving yourself is not being a selfish. It is adoration feeling and it is devotion and passionate towards the life and the universe. The Almighty is compassionate and Merciful, so should be human beings. When you love yourself you are appreciating what the Almighty has given you.  Nu-conditional love of a mother who embracing her child is a typical meaning of love.

Stress is your body's way of responding to any kind of demand. It can be caused by both good and bad experiences. When people feel stressed by something going on around them, their bodies rest by releasing chemicals into the blood. These chemicals give people more energy and strength, which can be a good thing if their stress is caused by physical danger

Many different things can cause stress- from physical (such as fear of something dangerous) to emotional (such as worry over your family or job.) One needs to find out what causes the stress.

STRESS AND HEALTH- When faced with chronic stress and an over activated autonomic nervous system, people begin to see physical symptoms. The first ones are relatively mild, like chronic headaches and increased susceptibility to colds. The following diseases may be as a result of long term stress:

1) Depression  2) Diabetes    3) Heart disease   4) Hyperthyroidism   5) Obesity    6) Tooth and gum disease   7) Sexual dysfunction

How Does Stress Affect Us.

Stress can affect both our body and our mind. people under large amounts of stress can become tired, sick, and unable to concentrate or think clearly. Sometimes, they even suffer mental breakdown.

Ttream, readying us to either flee the scene or battle it out. Heart rate and blood flow to the lhe sympathetic nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones, including adrenaline, norepinephrine, and cortisol. These stress hormones race through the bloodsarge muscles increase so we can run faster and fight harder. Blood vessels under the skin constrict to prevent blood loss in case of injury, pupils dilate so we can see better, and our blood sugar ramps up, giving us an energy boost and speeding up reaction time. At the same time, body processes not essential to immediate survival are suppressed. The digestive and reproductive systems slow down, growth hormones are switched off, and the immune response is inhibited.

SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF STRESS

To get a handle on stress, you first need to learn how to recognize it in yourself. Stress affects the mind, body and behavior in many ways - all directly tied to the physiological changes of the fight -or -flight response. The specific signs and symptoms of stress vary widely from person to person. Some people primarily experience physical symptoms, such as low back pain, stomach problems, and skin outbreaks. In others,  the stress pattern centrers around emotional symptoms, such as crying jags, or hypersensitivity. For still others, changes in the way they think or behave predominates.

HOW TO DEAL WITH HEART ATTACK?




If you think someone is having a heart attack, you must act quickly.

  • Call 999 or 112 for an ambulance
  • Sit the person down in a comfortable position
  • If they are conscious, give them a 300mg aspirin tablet to chew slowly
  • Don't leave them alone. Be prepared to administer CPR if they become unconscious and have trouble or stop breathing (cardiac arrest).

Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

CPR consists of a combination of chest compressions and rescue breaths.

The aim of CPR is to maintain a flow of oxygenated blood to the brain and the heart when someone has stopped breathing, or is not breathing normally.

Chest compressions

  • Place the heel of one hand on the centre of the chest and place the other hand on top
  • Keeping your arms straight, push down on the chest with the heel of your hand. You should push down by 4 - 5cm
  • Keep your hands in place, release the pressure, and allow the chest to rise
  • Do this 30 times, then administer two rescue breaths

Rescue breaths

  • Make sure the airway is open and clear. Place a hand on their forehead and gently tilt the head back, and lift
  • Pinch the person's nose
  • Place your mouth over theirs
  • Blow into the person's mouth; you should see the chest rise
  • Repeat once more. As you take another breath you should see the person's chest fall

Continue with CPR until the emergency services arrive, or someone else can take over from you.

When carrying out CPR, you should try to perform 100 chest compressions per minute. If you can't bring yourself to administer rescue breaths, then give chest compressions only.
