De Stress

Some degree of stress is a necessary part of life. However, when you have too much stress, or it lasts too long, it can be harmful to your health. Headache, shoulder, neck or back pain; teeth grinding; chronic fatigue or insomnia; sexual dysfunction, menstrual problems; upset stomach, heartburn; over sweating; irregular or elevated heart rate; skin problems; anxiety or depression; anger, impatience or irritability; poor concentration or forgetfulness; speech or hearing difficulties; overeating or not eating; increased smoking, addictions – these are all warning signs and symptoms. Mental stress, according to Ayurveda, is caused by overuse or misuse of the mind which impacts mental functions such as acquisition, retention, and recall. Mental stress imbalance Vata; the person's mind becomes hyperactive, yet the person loses the ability to make clear decisions, to think positively, to feel enthusiastic, and even to fall asleep at night. Emotional stress shows up as irritability, depression, and emotional instability. It affects sleep in a different way than mental stress - it can cause you to wake up in the night and not be able to go back to sleep. Emotional stress disturbs Vata & Pitta. Physical stress is caused by misuse or overuse of the body, such as exercising too much or working for extended periods at a job that is physically taxing. This can cause a person to experience physical fatigue, along with mental fogginess, difficulty in concentrating, and dullness of the mind. Physical stress imbalance Vata.
