How does your body react to stress?

Just out of curiosity, how do you usually react to heavy stress? In my case, my heart rate always goes up fast and stays fast in the middle of the night while I am asleep, which obviously wakes me up. This scared the hell out of me when it first happened to the point that I went to the ER and had two different cardiologists do two different EKG's and ECG's and place me on one of those 24 hour heart monitors. No problems were found at all, which led me to a psychologist who found that I was under a lot of stress.

Thankfully it has only happened twice in my life, the second time I knew what it was and was able to control and stop it immediately through "mental therapy" i.e. calming myself down.

So, just out of curiosity, how do you react?

I had what was diagnosed later as a panic attack. Same symptoms, BP went through the roof, swore I was having a heart attack. Went to ER, kept me hooked up and monitored overnight, I was shot up with irradiated isotopes and put on stress test to check for blockages, nothing found. Since that time, once I feel the onset of an attack coming on. I stop and breathe, go for a walk or drop the top and take a spin...

It really is all mental, in my case I was/am stressed because I have been out of work for 7 months and all that comes with that. Breathe... It really does help.

When I get really stressed out with work and school etc I just start getting annoyed at people. I don't get heavy heart rates or anything but usually the smallest things just tick me off. But luckily it doesn't last for a long time.

I found that when I work out I dont get as stressed out. I get panic attacks pretty bad, but now that Im on a more strict workout schedule they arent as bad.

Subject: A Great Lesson on Stress

A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water. Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'half empty or half full?'... She fooled them all .... "How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a smile.
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. To 20 oz.

She replied , "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it.
If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm.

If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an
Ambulance. In each case it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." She continued, "and that's the way it is with stress. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on."

"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden - holding stress longer and better each time practiced.

So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the evening and into the night... Pick them up tomorrow.

1 * Accept the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue!

2 * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

3 * Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

4 * Drive carefully... It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.

5 * If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

6 * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

7 * It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

8 * Never buy a car you can't push.

9 * Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

10 * Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

11 * Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

12 * The second mouse gets the cheese.

13 * When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

14 * Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

16 * Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.

17 * We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

18 * A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

19 * Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY

20 *Save the earth..... It's the only planet with chocolate!* I THINK !

besides those who inherit money, this world has plenty of anxiety and stressful situations to throw at us while we try and get a little ahead. Its tough to get ahead... pay for a 75k car, a 500K house, maintain a high paying job etc. I would say most peoples stress comes from wanting nice things and secondly not having the money to get them alternatively having the salary to get these things but the job is not maintainable long term.
Its all about the benjamins, yet people who are financially free typically make their own stresses, which for most people who want to make it to that freedom see the rich lifestyle as ridiculous.

My brain responds to stress. It tells me to do something that will alleviate the thing causing the stress. My body then takes the appropriate action to alleviate the stress.

Stress normally triggers fatigue, headaches and quick irritation for me. It normally goes away after a few days of proper sleeping, clean eating and some gym workouts

Stress is a killer. Literally. Your mental state is often a direct relation to your physical state and well being. Many things can be a variable... diet, schedule, environment, people, influences, etc.

Eating healthy and organic (paleo: no refined oils and sugars) and regular exercise can really help you with stress. But just not letting lifes common worries get your overstressed and learning how to vent it out can be a huge answer also. Keep your mind happy and often with care your body will follow. dont let things get you stressed. And if its people thats the problem, remove them from your life or simply dont let them get you that stressed out.

As I got into adult hood (40s), I've learned that the classic "Night Cap" or after work martini is exactly the stress relief required. Just one, maybe a couple on Fridays. Really can help put down all the silly stuff that may cause stress.

You know there is actually an answer and that is "everything in moderation".

It's a simple concept, and the hopeless/pointless chasing of material shit, stuff you don't need, and trying to keep up with the Joneses just doesn't matter. It's a simple matter of getting your priorities straight.

Find a career that you find enjoyable, maybe actually fun, and everything will come to you. What's the quote "Do what you love and you'll never work another day in your life."

It's an odd concept to bring into a BMW forum certainly, cause many of us have likely been raised or trained to acquire more and more, that we MUST WIN. Many have likely sought out careers based on earning potential, or status without realizing that it's meaningless to them and gives them no real joy, no satisfaction.

You want to reduce your stress in the first world? STOP worrying about meaningless, useless, material shit. We don't NEED BMWs, WE DONT NEED THE McMansion, and who gives a shit what Bob at work is driving. However, we have folks on this forum whom I guarantee are stressed because the BMW they are driving costs too much for it to be truly affordable. Self inflicted stress, because of a desire to acquire. It's the "American Way" right, we are programmed to have to have to the new shiny shit and that it will make us happy. But it won't, it never will. Instead the new shiny shit has you working late, compromising morals maybe, spending more and more time away from family and friends to simply afford that shiny shit. It really is insane.

There was a study I came across a few years ago. In it researchers, (or Pollsters) found that there is a significant decrees in happiness and contentment as IQ and education increases. It's simpler to be happy and relaxed when you're simply unaware of or unconcerned with all the "horror" the Media is telling us matters.

Want to be happy? It's all inside you, contentment is from within and the less wealth worshiping and status hounding you do? The more you realize that it's unimportant bullshit? The happier you will be.

If you want real stress? Try getting shot at. (No a ramboesque tale coming) just spend some time getting mortars dropped on you, or small arms directed at you. That is real stress, and you'll experience a serious adrenal/cortisol dump. Put it all into perspective, and unless you are surgeon, an Airline Pilot, Soldier, or in some other real world life or death career? All the other stress is just little shit, and don't sweat the little shit.

Blah Blah Blah, holy cow I went off... But seriously, stress kills, in the first world we are largely stressed about things that when put into perspective are genuinely NOT critical to living and is therefore little shit.

Oh and Scotch might be your friend... So long as you remember "all things in moderation".

You need to and natural and physical fitness can really help you with pressure, But just not allowing life's typical problems get your over-worked and studying how to release it out can be a large response also, Keep your thoughts satisfied and often with good care your human body will adhere to.....
