How to deal with chronic stress
Chronic stressful life situations can increase the risk of depression if you do not handle stress well
There is also growing evidence of a connection between poor stress management and physical illnesses.
Stress is a normal psychological and physical response to positive or negative situations in your life, such as a new job or a beloved one’s death. Stress itself is not abnormal or bad. What matters is how you deal with stress.
If you find it difficult to cope, chronic stress can exhaust or overwhelm you. Bad moods can often be observed, productivity can be reduced, your relationship can be hurt, you can develop sleep problems, and even find it difficult to carry out your normal daily routines.
You can try some remedies to help manage stress, such as:
- Attempting meditation, yoga, or deep breathing
- Regular physical activity
- Healthy diet
- Daily regime
- Reducing the obligations
However, these methods are not always effective. If you tend to be stressed often, as many of us do in today's demanding world, your body may be under increased stress most of the time. And this can lead to serious health problems. Chronic stress destroys almost every system in your body. It suppresses your immune system, upsets your digestive and reproductive systems, increases your risk of heart attack and stroke, and speeds up the aging process. It can even affect the brain, leaving you more vulnerable to anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems.
Health problems caused or worsened by stress include:
- Depression and anxiety
- The pain of any kind
- Sleep problems
- Autoimmune diseases
- Digestive problems
- Skin conditions such as eczema
- Heart diseases
- Weight problems
- Reproductive problems
- Memory problems
Chronic stress can cause depression. Depression is more severe and lasting than stress and requires other help.
The good news is that depression is a treatable condition. However, this may not be something that you get rid of on your own, so it is important to get help.
How do you distinguish stress from depression? Both can affect you in the same way, but there are some differences. The symptoms of depression can be much more intense. They last at least two weeks. Depression causes strong mood changes such as painful sadness and despair. You may feel drained and unable to perform simple actions.
MEDEUS medical center uses today's best technology to treat chronic stress and depression. The first is transcranial magnetic stimulation, which affects the brain regions responsible for the release of "happiness hormones." Their imbalance accompanies every case of depression. With us, you will be able to restore these hormones without applying pharmacological therapy, which means there is no "withdrawal effect". The effectiveness of this method has been proven after a few hours from the start of therapy.
Also, with the help of frequency-microcurrent therapy, the energy balance of nerve cells, which is depleted under chronic stress and depression influence, can be restored.
Photobiomodulation of the central nervous system affects the brain with delta waves, activates its cognitive functions, and brings balance to mood and perception of the world.
Our method is the latest in medical technology. In our center, you have the opportunity to get rid of stress body exhaustion.
