Ce este stresul?

Until fairly recently, the definition of the word stress did not include applications to the
human body. Pn destul de recent, definiia de stres cuvnt nu includ aplicaii pentru
corpul uman. It was and is, as Webster's notes, a strain or straining force exerted upon a
body that tends to strain or deform its shape a meaning that pretty much hits the mark
when applied to people. Acesta a fost i este, ca note Webster, o tulpin sau ncordare
for exercitat asupra unui organism care tinde s tulpina sau deforma forma - o n
sensul c destul de mult hit-uri marca atunci cnd sunt aplicate la oameni. When needed
some stress tends to keep us alert and prepared for the challenges in our lives. Cnd e
nevoie unele de stres tinde sa ne tina de alert i pregtit pentru provocrile n vieile
noastre. Excessive or adverse stress, however, the kind first described in 1936 by
Canadian physician and researcher Hans Selye, can put great strain on us and threaten our
well-being. stres excesiv sau adverse, cu toate acestea, primul tip descrise n 1936 de
ctre medic i cercettor canadian Hans Selye, poate pune presiune mare pe noi i
amenin bunstarea noastr. Stress can cause irritability, muscle tension, depression,
sleeplessness, loss of memory or other cognitive function and far more serious problems,
including increased heart rate and blood pressure, palpitations and ultimately cardiac
arrest. (See our Recommendations ) Stresul poate provoca iritabilitate, tensiune
muscular, depresie, insomnie, pierderea memoriei sau cognitive funcie i alte probleme
mult mai grave, inclusiv accelerarea btilor inimii i tensiunea arterial, palpitaii i stop
cardiac n cele din urm. (a se vedea Recomandrile noastre)

"Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one." "Adoptarea
atitudine corect poate converti un stres negativ ntr-unul pozitiv."

A New Perspective O nou perspectiv

Some researchers have concluded it's our perception of events, not the actual events
themselves that cause most of our stress. Unii cercettori au ajuns la concluzia c este
percepia noastr asupra evenimentelor nu, evenimentele reale s-au care cauzeaza cele
mai multe de stres noastre. HeartMath researchers, however, have studied the problem of

For example, the "feeling" of not having enough time was the No. 1 answer given in a
survey asking people what causes their stress. De exemplu, "sentimentul" de a nu avea
suficient timp a fost numarul 1 rspunsul dat ntr-un sondaj cere oamenilor ceea ce
cauzeaza stres lor. It would seem time pressure is the culprit, but it's actually the "feeling"
of not having enough time that is the real culprit, and that feeling brings on anxiety,
frustration and a sense of being overwhelmed. S-ar prea presiunea timpului este vinovat,
dar este de fapt "sentimentul" de a nu avea suficient timp ca este vinovat real, i aduce pe
acel sentiment de anxietate, frustrare i un sentiment de a fi copleit. The inability to
appropriately and healthfully address such negative emotions is the primary cause of
today's burgeoning stress epidemic. Through HeartMath's scientifically validated tools
