Stress Mangement Q&A

What is stress?

Stress is your body's reaction to the demands and challenges of daily life. It triggers the "fight or flight" response, involving your body, mind, and emotions. 


While stress is a natural part of life, prolonged exposure to stressors can significantly impact your physical health, mental well-being, job performance, and relationships.

What causes stress?

Stressors vary from person to person and can have positive or negative outcomes. Common stressors include major life changes like:


  • Marriage
  • Childbirth
  • Divorce
  • Job transitions
  • Illness
  • Financial strain
  • Exposure to upsetting news

 Moving, discrimination, and chronic pain can also subject you to undue stress. 


How you perceive and respond to these events is unique to you. If you find that stress is making you mentally or physically unwell or interfering with your work, social, or personal life, reach out to Elevate Medical today.

What are the symptoms of stress?

Stress can show up through physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. Your symptoms of stress may include:


  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sleep disturbances, including insomnia
  • Relationship problems and intimacy issues
  • Appetite changes
  • Anger problems
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Chronic pain
  • Irritability

When you have trouble controlling stress or experience stress disproportionately to the event at hand, the team at Elevate Medical can help. Their goal is to prevent stress from harming your daily life and health.
