Stress as defined by Oxford Dictionaries
Stress is Mental or Emotional Strain or Tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances.
How stress effects your body
Stress can be defined as the way you feel when you are under abnormal and prolonged sustained pressure. This can manifest as headaches, aches, pains, tense muscles, insomnia, frequent colds & infections, loss of sexual desire and the capability to perform, low energy, upset stomach, irregular heartbeat, palpitations, bruxism, irregular vision, constipation and nausea. In the extreme condition, when the immune system becomes weakened and compromised by excessive and prolonged stress, this can result in the recurrence of secondary cancers and other equally debilitating potentially terminal conditions.
Mental & Emotional effects of Long Term Stress
Signs of long term stress include; worrying, panic attacks, prolonged feelings of either being out of control, or you may experience tearfulness, excessive temper, rage, bad language, irritability, self-harming, depression, inability to make decisions, or communicate, irrational fears, and phobias. You may also feel you’re being picked on, bullied, marginalised, having a sense that you can’t quite put your finger on atmospheres when meeting friends. Growing social dependency on hand held devices, gambling, binge eating, drugs, alcohol, excessive consumption of coffee and high energy sugary drinks are all common factors.
Stress in the work place
Stress does not just affect the working performance of an individual employee but rather has a greater effect on overall performance of co-workers, teams, and the company or organisation as a whole. Upper managerial stress can cascade, top down through to the front line work force, resulting in bullying, victimisation, poor performance, lack lustre supervision and corporate loss of direction. This will result in higher than average sickness figures, long term absenteeism, staff departures and in some cases unecessary sackings.
