This is the beginning of the feeling called STRESS.

STRESS MANAGEMENT
Why manage Stress ?
Stress can improve performance and therefore can be used as a tool for self-development. This is called “Normal Stress”. Stress can also cause damage to one’s health and therefore, there is a need to be careful for adjustment. This is called “Distress - Neurotic Stress”. Understanding them for self improvement and to prevent ill health is the need for Stress Management
Madhavan. P 10/09

STRESS MANAGEMENT NORMAL STRESS
Normal Stress is healthy for one’s development. This gives adequate pressure to bring out the potentials in terms of - Physical Strength - Mental Agility & - Emotional Balance (for hard work) (for smart work) (for better relationships)

This helps one’s personality development and overall growth.
Madhavan. P 10/09

STRESS MANAGEMENT
NEUROTIC STRESS (Contd..)
Neurotic Stress is unhealthy as it is not - comfortable & - compatible to one’s Physical, Mental, Emotional levels.

This causes disarrangement of - body cells - mental stability & - emotional equilibrium.
Madhavan. P 10/09

STRESS MANAGEMENT
NEUROTIC STRESS (Contd..)
This condition rapidly saps out body energy (because the disarrangement is required to be brought to normal arrangement) and makes it susceptible for - illness - loss of memory & - efficiency. The life becomes fearful, unhappy and unworthy to live. It is imperative to manage the stress to lead a happy enjoyable, harmonious life. It makes one a contributor to the organisation and man kind at large, instead of becoming a liability for others.
Madhavan. P 10/09

STRESS MANAGEMENT
A good understanding of Stress is half the battle won. STRESS = THE LOAD APPLIED STRAIN = THE DEFORMATION (change is size) DUE TO THE LOAD APPLIED
