Stress is healthy when controlled. Little stress can be good for us. It can place a little pressure on us so we perform at a more peak level.

It challenge us. Give us extra focus to success in lives, which may not succeeded without a small degree of stress.

Severe stress strains both mental and physical of our bodies.

Stress affects us in many ways, including anxiety, depression, tension and anger.

It lead us to poor concentration, forgetfulness, indecisiveness, apathy and hopelessness.

Stress increased drinking and smoking, insomnia, accident proneness, weight problems, obsessive-compulsive behaviour, nervousness and gambling.

Stress linked anger outbursts are mini-breakdowns, in which the pressure released outwards violently.

Anger and aggression are terms that often used interchangeably, they’re not the same.

The two can work independently; people can be aggressive without being angry, and angry without being aggressive.

Anger is a negative feeling state that typically associated with hostile thoughts, physiological arousal and maladaptive behaviours.

It usually develops in response to the unwanted actions of another person who seen to be disrespectful, degrading, threatening or careless

Aggression is an overt physical or sometimes verbal behaviour that may intend to cause harm to another person, object or system.

Reidy and colleagues (2010) provide evidence this when they researched the association between narcissism and aggression.

When narcissistic people sense an ego threat, they may respond with aggression as a way to protect themselves from seen in an unfavourable manner, rather than aggressing as an expression of anger.

Scientists have found biological evidence that stress and aggression feed off of each other, contributing to a “cycle of violence.”

Many living with high stress are at a tipping point, faced with potential physical and emotional-health challenges if they cannot get the support they need to manage their stress well.  Untreated, constantly high stress could become a severe condition.

It can result in serious health problems including anxiety, insomnia, muscle pain, high blood pressure and a weakened immune system. Research shows that stress can even contribute to developing major illnesses, such as heart disease, depression and obesity, or aggravate existing illnesses.

Coping successfully with stress needs us to see ourselves in a different light. We need a deeper understanding of our limitless prospective as well as our vulnerabilities, how we can develop our strengths as individuals through common support.
