Stress is your body's biochemical reaction to how you live your life. Stress can develop into distress (or eustress) and disease, through your personal adaptation to internal and external environments. When your energy production is higher than your body can discharge, distress (or eustress) occurs. This can result in feelings such as loss of control, being overwhelmed, stuck and/or agitated. Each person reacts differently to the different stressors (causes). It is important for you to know what causes your distress (or eustress) and recognize the stress indicators (symptoms) and the signal they give.

Some signs and symptoms of stress (distress or eustress) are tension and physical illness; low energy and fatigue; irritability; insomnia; headaches; and backaches. According to Hans Selye, M.D. "Stress is not something to be avoided." It is a "response of the body to any demand made upon it."

Since stress is a body response, we only know that we are stressed, or more correctly in distress (or eustress), when our body tells us, that is, when we feel symptoms known as stress indicators. It appears that stress is good. It is when you feel distress (or eustress) that you need to take another look at your lifestyle, and the choices and decisions you are making.

Help in becoming aware of your body, and locating both physical and emotional feelings can be very constructive. Making contact with yourself generates enthusiasm about your goals, fosters an appreciation and acceptance of yourself, and makes your actions more diversified.  Specifically, being aware of your breath (in particular your exhale) helps you let go of your fear and procrastination.

Bioenergetic Analysis, a body-oriented approach to stress management, teaches you to stay in touch with your body for messages and cues in order to make decisions that are conducive to good physical and emotional health. It is important that you become aware and accept what you are feeling rather than deny what you are feeling.
