What normally happen to you if stress occur?

This "things" happen to you and me when we feel stressed. We know that unmanaged stress is not good but we still unclear why it is not good. Come come let us see what negative effects can we get if we do not manage our stress well.


During stressful state, our heart rate is increasing more than normal. This will lead to our increasing breathing rate. At this time our muscle will become tense and do you know why your hand become cold? It's because of the blood will moves to your muscle as a preparation for fight. This will lead to less blood at your brain and this is why stress people will become uncreative and hard to think. Blood pressure will increase because of the increasing heart pump rate and this makes us easily gets angry. Sometime we mad becuse of simple little thing.


In terms of your stuffs inside your mind, you may feel:

  • Catastrophizing
    This makes us think that things are worse than it is. You will have the fear of moving forward and try "suppose to be good" stuffs.

  • Self-denigration
    Sometimes when people become too low profile, they actually having this self-denigration. This can be quite a trouble for them to move forward and improve themselves.

  • Problems in decision making
    It will be hard for you to decide the best decision for you when you are in stress condition. It quite be troublesome and need to be overcome as fast as possible.


The effects of stress to people's behaviour are hyper attitude where they tend to move faster than normal people. They conduct frequent gestures that can be obviously seen by people. They also becoming impatient especially if others do work slower than them.

You cannot run away from Stress

Yes it is true that you cannot escape yourself from stress. It happens to me and to every body else in this universe. As long as a person is alive, stress will be in their daily lifestyles. So we can say that stress is normal. You will experience stress whether directly or not and whether you know it or not.

It is the level of stress and acceptance that makes it different from one person to another. It may be that one person can handle a lot of stresses due to work or family problem because of their experience in that field of life. However, what about person that experiencing “over stressed” for the first time? Surely they will feel shocked and this can lead to many negative effects if no proper ways to handle it been done.

In order to “reduce” level of stress, we need to know about it. See that I am using the word “reduce” because we surely cannot 100% eliminate stress. We can only help reducing stress level to a more acceptable level. This can be done through more than one method.

There is nobody that never experience stress in their life. The one manage to go through this stressful periods is the one who will achieve success because it is actually one of the ingredients of great achievement. They have the proper ways to cope with the stresses.

So right now please take some time to tell yourself and really tell yourself that stress is good. We just need to know how to control and cope with it. By achieving this, you will surely reach your goal safely and happily.

In the next post I will share some about the reactions of stress which will make you say, “No wonder I feel that way. Now I know.” =)
