Stress is occurred when we feel that everything seems to have become too much.Sometimes we
have too much pressure that come from our surrounding.Everyday Our life will have many challenges
that come either from outside or inside.We can’t escape from challenges of life,the only way to fix this
situation is only by solving ourselves.Back to the topic,stress have 2 types, “Stress” and “a
Stressor”.Stress is a feeling when we receive pressure while Stressor are the things that we respond
to our surrounding or environment.The example of stress is like work,setting a goals and others while
example of stressors are noise,going out on a date.Normally,when we talk about stress,wegonna talk
about how it response.The response of stress called “Fight Or Flight Response”.
FIGHT OR FLIGHT
Part of our response inside our body is reffering to our physiological and affects our physical
state.When we received a challenge or pressure,our body will activated the response to protect us so
that we either can fight or escape the challenge or pressure.Our Fight Or Flight response is our body
sympathetic nervous system reacting to a stressful event.Our body produces larger quantities of the
chemicals cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline, which trigger a higher heart rate, heightened muscle
preparedness, sweating, and alertness.All of these help us protect ourselves in a situation that we
been facing.Non-essential body functions will slow down, such as our digestive and immune systems
when we are in fight-or flight response mode. All resources can then be concentrated on rapid
breathing, blood flow, alertness and muscle use.
What Happen When We Stress?
Everything comes with effect,same as stress,when we stress,it’sgonna give an effect to some part of
our body system.Normally,when we stress,our blood pressure will rises and our breathing also will
become more rapid.Non-essential body function such as digestive system will slow down.Our heart
rate or pulse will be more rises.Our muscles will become more tense.Not forget heightened state of
alertnessto mention that due to ,we can’t have a good night sleep.
How we respond to our Stress
affects our health?
Firstly,we do not have a same situation,every person with their own problem and their own way to
solve it.Because of this,we can’t have a same resources in every situation.
In some situation,we may refer something that we’ve been facing in life as stressful although it’s
actually not.If that situation is true,then you may not actually ready to face the challenge that come to
our life.Example of this situation is pregnancy,move to new place either house or work and being
promote.Pregnancy is the best thing that every women been dreaming for.
It is very important to learn what matters more than the event itself is actually our own thoughts about
events when we are trying to manage or rearrange our stress.How we see the stressful event will be
the most largest single factor that gave the impacts on our physical and mental health.Our
interpretation of events and challenges in life may be decide whether they are invigorating or harmful
A persistently negative response to challenges that come to our life will give a negative effects on our
health and emotion.So,we must learn on how to manage our stress to face our next life.
Study shows that perception of stress increase heart attack risk rapidly.According to researchers at
the University of Western Ontario.people who believe with their stress is affecting their own health in a
big way are twice as likely to have a heart attack.In some research from Pennsylvania State
University,shows that stress was not the problem,but rather how we react to stressor. It appears that
how patients react to stress is a predictor of their own health,regardless of their present health and
stressors.In 2011,scientists from the University of Illinois at Chicago explained that stress may
havesomething to do with cancer aggressiveness among minority populations.
EFFECTS OF STRESS
Stress can cause us to risk our own health.It could give many effect in our life such as tendency to
sweat.Stress can cause a great impact on our body.When someone so nervous and stress,they will
sweating all over face.Stress also could give us chest pain and back pain.Then,it also can cause
someone to become obesity because normally when someone want to release stress,they will find
many food to eat as a way to release their stress.It can make our muscle cramps.We will easily
become headache too because of thinking too much of our problem.When it come to headache,it also
could lead to fainting which this is normally we see at people who can’t control of themselves
anymore.Normally,when we look at people who are in stress,they will have stomach upset.They also
will do nail biting and will have a high blood pressure due to the situation that they been facing.Stress
can lead to disturbance of our thoughts and feelings.They will easily become
insecurity,forgetfulness,irritability,problemconcentrating,restlessness,sadness and fatigue.When it
disturb our thoughts and feelings,it will also disturb our behaviour where people will eat too much and
there also people who eat too little.Then,it will lead to the drug abuse and alcohol abuse because
people thought that drug and alcohol could release their tension.Stress also can separate people
relationship because of too much anger,people normally will become out of control and make people
fighting each other and worst,murder.Try to look at smokers,when they too angry and stress,what
they do?,they will take out his tobacco and start sucking it,this will lead to higher tobacco
consumption.It will also cause social withdrawal because people who are in stress,they will attempt to
go alone so that they will have much more space to think.People who stress are easily to cry because
of the situation that they had to face.
What are the causes of stress?
When we talk about the effect of stress just now,we realise that we almost forget the almost important
part,the causes of stress.Normally people will ask to themselves, “Why stress?”.But why don’t we try
to ask ourselves, “What are the causes of stress?”.We will not stress if there is no causes.There a few
that me and my group had listed about the causes of stress which is:-Family Problem
-Lack of time
-Relationship problem (divorce too)
-Becoming a mother or a father
-Conflicts in the workplace
-Driving in bad traffic
-Fear of crime
-Losing your job
-Too much noise
-Uncertainty (awaiting laboratory test results, academic exam results, job interview results, etc)
These list of causes of stress clearly 100% accurate because this is what happen in this time where
people too easily become a stressful person.
