Overcoming Stress – For Men



Twitter This!

Life has never been so complicated. With the advances in modern living, the comfort and luxury that we now have, we have lived extremely busy life because of the rat race and the various demands that this modern time has brought us.

While not all experience exhaustion in the middle of our busy lives, there is a significant number of people who experience stress, men in particular because of the importance that men would put on their professional status.

Time and again, women have been said to be better in coping with stress than do men. This is because women tend to have more defined outlet and ways to cope with stress and deal with it more effectively. There was even one in the headlines in the late 90s when three Japanese men committed suicide because of the dwindling financial status of their companies. Apparently, these Japanese businessmen were not able to control and manage the anxiety that the stressful nature of their positions have brought them.

Men are not always good at recognizing that they are already suffering of stress. But what are the main sources of stress. Experts name seven of the most common. One is finance. Who would not have some panic moments when you are about to declare bankruptcy due to mounting bills, unpaid mortgages, and piles and piles of debts?

What even complicates it is when there is a danger of losing your job while knowing that your son is about to go to college. In the workplace, worries keep on coming due to more demands of newer responsibilities and duties and because our goal is to get higher in the career ladder, we become overwhelmed with the tasks that go along getting promoted.

Stress can also come from some family problems like an impending divorce or major disagreements among family members or also because of some health condition and how much more if death happens to a loved one. There are also other sources of stress such as personal safety and the desire to keep up with the world’s standards of physical beauty.

Stress in men can be recognized through various symptoms. Physically, it would include chest pains, high blood pressure, fatigue, diminished or unusually high sex drive, body pains, headaches, dizziness, indigestion, constipation or diarrhea, excessive perspiration, weight gain or loss, stomach cramps, skin problems and a lot more.

Psychologically, stress manifests in men when there is frequent withdrawal or isolation, sadness, insomnia, restlessness, feeling of insecurity, irritability, dissatisfaction on things, and frequent worrying. Stress at some point in the life of a man is very essential. There are times when it is the driving factor that pushes the adrenaline to win races in life, solve problems, accomplish a daunting task, and take on a high-level responsibility.

Stress becomes dangerous when it becomes long term and when it affects your creative and productive factor. In the long run, stress not managed can become a debilitating symptom of a bigger health problem. And the worst that could happen is that stress can be fatal. Like how some Japanese men would finally end stress when they could no longer manage it, they commit suicide.

There are safe and natural remedies and relief that men could use to effectively manage stress especially if it’s becoming debilitating. One is homeopathy, which is effectively tailored to suit man’s personality. This gentle and holistic system of healing is suitable to everyone, young and old.

It does not only treat the physical aspect of stress but it also focuses on the emotional part. It utilizes among others, natural substances from plants and animals that take into consideration emotional and lifestyle factors of men.

Of course alongside with using these natural remedies, there is no better way to get over stress than having supportive people around who are ready to help and understand what you as a man is going through.

Stress will always be inevitably normal in our lives and the good thing is that managing it can be very easy if one learns to recognize it first and be willing to realize that he alone may not be able to overcome it.
