Stress, Anxiety, and Depression are impediments to living a pleasant life. It is often not the situation, but how you perceive it makes it appear tough.

Stress is a state of worry or mental tension caused by a difficult situation. Stress is a natural human response that prompts us to address challenges and threats in our lives. Everyone experiences stress to some degree, some time or another. The way we respond to stress, however, makes a big difference to our overall well-being.

Stress affects us at mental, emotional, and physical levels. At the same time, a little bit of stress is good and helps one perform daily activities to completion. On the contrary, too much stress can cause mental and physical health problems. Learning how to cope with stress can help you feel less overwhelmed and support at mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

When stressed, you may find it difficult to concentrate. You may experience headaches or pain in your body, maybe an upset stomach or trouble sleeping. Loss of appetite or you may start to eat more, than usual. Chronic stress can worsen pre-existing health problems and may increase your use of alcohol, tobacco, and other substances. Stress can make it hard to relax and can come with a range of emotions, including anxiety and irritability. How to reduce stress? Please speak with our Experts.

Anxiety is the body’s natural response to stress. It’s a feeling of fear or apprehension about what is going to come. For example, going for a job interview or going to give a presentation to a large gathering may cause some people to feel fearful and nervous. Most of the people develop anxiety to varying degrees, which is normal and fine.

However, if your feelings of anxiety are extreme and have lasted for some time, causing interference in day-to-day life, then you may have developed an anxiety disorder and you should consult a Counsellor.

Anxiety affects everyone in different ways, due to different reasons. Sometimes, the feelings of fear and dread don’t go away or get worse over time. Then, this is the time to meet and consult a Counsellor.
