In stress counseling sessions we define Stress as your body’s physiological response to a threat. Also called the “fight or flight response”, stress enhances your reflexes, strength, focus and endurance when your body releases cortisol and adrenaline into your bloodstream. These hormones measurably increase your heartbeat, blood pressure, and breathing rate, while also tightening your muscles and sharpening your senses.
The fight-or-flight response evolved to protect your body from harm. It helped our ancestors survive the brutal experiences they faced when hunting and competing with other predators. Even today it can save your life in emergency situations, such as heightening your reactions to avoid a car accident or strengthening your stamina during a natural disaster.
Too Much Stress
While the fight-or-flight is exactly what your body needs in tense circumstances, extended periods of stress can damage your mental and physical health. And early sign of prolonged stress is an elevated or irregular resting heartbeat and can be accompanied with feeling:
Irritable, agitated, or moody
Tense and overwhelmed
Nauseous and dizzy
Because stress is caused by threatening or challenging experiences, at Naya Clinics, we foster a safe and simple environment for stress management counseling. We provide counseling for stress at work, home, or school. Naturally, you might bring a variety of stress behaviors with you to our facilities, so we will help you unravel your stressors, replace your negative self-talk, and practice relaxation techniques.
