Effectively Manage Stress with the Cenegenics Elite Health Program
The body’s natural reaction to stress helps executives and other professionals perform well under critical circumstances, such as quick and effective decision-making and proving successful under tight deadlines. Stress is normal and in limited doses, can even be considered healthy.
Yet, stress that occurs on a continual basis has negative long-term effects on health. Activating emergency stress becomes increasingly difficult to avoid when our nervous system stops differentiating between physical danger and perceived threats.
Types of Stress
There are three main types of stress, each of which produce a unique response in the body. For executives and professionals dealing with extreme stress, it is critical to recognize the differences.
The most common form of stress, acute stress, is a result of the demands of the near future. Work deadlines and short-term dilemmas can cause acute stress, a temporary type of stress that does not cause long-term negative effects.
Those who often experience acute stress, normally embody characteristics that help them excel in the workplace. However, they also endure a tremendous amount of stress due to juggling many responsibilities and pressures. Individuals facing episodic acute stress must manage their stressors in a healthy way to ensure long-term wellness.
Chronic stress occurs when real, physical danger or emotional threats are not present. Chronic stress is the most harmful type of stress and can have a number of effects on your body, mood and behavior. Chronic stress has a long-lasting detrimental effect to your health.
Long-Term Consequences of Stress
For professionals dealing with high levels of stress, it is especially important to recognize the effect it can have on your health. As your list of responsibilities continue to grow, your health is often put last, while work and other responsibilities continue to take priority. If action is not taken, chronic stress can contribute to limited concentration and cognitive function, inhibited sleep, and problems with personal relationships – eventually leading to energy depletion, poor work performance, and tarnishing long-term wellness.
