What is stress?
The late Dr Anthony Clare, the well-known Irish psychiatrist, described stress as “what we experience when there is a significant lack of balance between the resources we possess and the demands made on us”. We become stressed when our system is overwhelmed by any trauma or experience, physical, mental or emotional. Stress is not something out there. It is a completely internal phenomenon based on how we see, interpret and react to events in our lives.
The most common symptoms of a stressed life-style are:
Sleep disturbance Irritability Muscle tension leading to spasm
Poor concentration Shallow breathing Stomach churning/knotting
Palpitations Sweating Increased smoking
Panic attacks Impotence Lack of energy/zest for life
Depression Feeling there is "never enough time"
