Stress is hard to avoid, and most of us have suffered from stress at least once in our lifetimes. A little stress is OK, and our bodies are equipped to deal with it but stress over long periods of time can wreak havoc on our bodies and can even cause health problems.
When faced with stress our bodies produce hormones to help us to get through stressful situations. These hormones are what causes some people to get addicted to stress or rather, the feeling they have when their bodies fight stress. Our bodies produce adrenaline, dopamine, and cortisol which cause us to feel better.
There are ways to handle stress such as getting exercise, taking time out from it all, and by not taking on too much. But sometimes a little outside help is needed. Unfortunately, many people simply do not have the time to meet with a therapist or simply do not have the money to pay a therapist by the hour.
