Stress is a way of life for many people and health chiefs in Canada predicted that 11 million Canadians would be even more impacted by the ‘S’ word dealing with the coronavirus pandemic than ever before.
Stresses related to working from home, not working at all, financial difficulties, sick family members or being stuck indoors for long periods with family have touched almost everyone in the last few months and Health Canada warned that it could take its toll.
Specialist stress clinic InnerSight Psychotherapy Inc has called on people not to be shy in getting help dealing with their stress, so it does not escalate out of control and cause other health problems.
The clinic, in Ontario, has a team of stress therapists who work with people from all sorts of backgrounds with a whole range of stress related issue and conditions.
A spokesperson from InnerSight Psychotherapy said that the stresses of balancing career and family, long working hours and financial struggles were even more intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic and urged people who have been affected to get some help.
“Stress can lead to anxiety and other mental health illnesses, but it can also have a physical impact on our bodies. Stress will trigger the ‘fight or flight’ mechanism and this leads to an elevated heart rate and raised blood pressure. Experiencing these symptoms on a regular basis can cause cardiovascular health problems. Fight or flight can disrupt the digestive system. And stress is very often related to poor food choices or increased alcohol or drug use. Stress can also lead to insomnia and without sleep, our body fails to function correctly.
“There are so many issues that can stem from us being stressed, people should not ignore it and they should not be afraid or embarrassed to ask for help.
“Using therapists or some sort of support network to deal with stress is very common these days and it will help us to deal with issues more quickly and effectively.
“Our therapists help our clients to address the symptoms of stress, but we will also tool them up with techniques that they can use in their day-to-day lives to deal with stressful situations we encounter all the time. It is important that our clients have a long-term strategy for dealing with their issues, not just a quick fix. It is this approach that makes our clients happier, less stressed and able to cope with their issues much better,” he added.
