Understanding your stress & stressors is the first step in finding relief.

There are 3 different types of stress:

1. Acute

This is the most common form of stress. It comes from different current, past and future pressures and demands. Acute stress is a simple fact of life; it is thrilling and exciting but too much of it can be exhausting.

2. Episodic Acute

Some people suffer from acute stress constantly and their lives consist of chaos and crisis. They are always in a rush and always late. They persistently feel a sense of disorganization, this leads to Episodic Acute Stress.

3. Chronic

While acute stress can be thrilling and exciting, chronic stress is not. This is the grinding stress that wears people away day after day, year after year. Chronic stress destroys bodies, minds and lives. It wreaks havoc through long-term attrition. It’s the stress of poverty, of dysfunctional families, of being trapped in an unhappy marriage or in a despised job or career.

Changes in your lifestyle can reduce stress & its symptoms.
