Growing up, it’s safe to say that many of us @KhaleejiGirls have been taught the importance of taking care of our health right? We’ve been told that it’s always, always, always going to be important for a @KhaleejiGirl to take care of her health in all aspects right? And that the mental health is just as important to a @KhaleejiGirl’s well-being as her physical health is right? In times like these, yes it’s important to take care of your health. However, oddly enough, recent research shows that this traditional way of thinking may have been wrong all this time.
Research from Entrepreneur Magazine shows how undergoing stressful situations over a short period of time is actually good for you. Why? It’s because dealing with stress in smaller doses can be beneficial for your health.
According to a study conducted by Kristen Aschbacher, assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of California, a small amount of stress over a short period in comparison to a longer period can send signals to your body and boost its functionality. In fact, small doses of the inevitable condition of stress can lead to higher brain functionality along with overall health.
Think about it. When you go through chronic stress you’re more likely to run across a higher risk for chronic illnesses. These include breast cancer, diabetes, depression, and God forbid, more. Some of these signals may include increasing its antioxidant operations, which could then help the body when it comes to ageing, diseases, tissue damage and more thereby signally to every @KhaleejiGirl that yes, a little bit of stress in our bodies is okay.
But of course we don’t want too much stress within ourselves do we?
Plus, the good news is, the different types of stress you may go through are something every @KhaleejiGirl has in common with the next. These include, mental, emotional, even physical kind of stress. A @KhaleejiGirl is not alone when she is stressing out in any and all of the different forms stress comes in. For throughout the journey of every @KhaleejiGirl she stumbles upon these kinds of stresses and more at one point of her life or another.
The common symptoms of stress a @KhaleejiGirl deals with in one can be:
- Mental symptoms: These may take time to form their shape. They include confusion, lack of memory, and lack of engagement in comparison to how you as a @KhaleejiGirl may have been before.
- Emotional symptoms: Prolonged stress can cause a @KhaleejiGirl to become more negative, irritable, lonely, have low self-esteem, mood swings, and much more.
- Physical symptoms: These can be due to changing sleep patterns, eating habits, muscle tension to name a few.
The even better news is, now that you know these are the most common symptoms you can look out for them within yourself. True, just a little stress is okay and now we can figure out just how much is enough!
So once a @KhaleejiGirl sees these symptoms in herself, she will be able to lessen it. Thus, leading to just the right amount of stress in her life without going crazy.
