How does your stress manifest?
It's not a question we ask ourselves very often. Instead we focus on 'being' stressed and what situation has caused it.
But did you know there are two quite different systems at play when it comes to our body responding to stress? If there is an imbalance, your body won't be responding to stress in a normal way, especially if it is prolonged stress. When you have some insight into your stress 'type' and what your body does to cope with stress, it can help you be much more targeted in how you address it.
Take our stress quiz to give you some insight into how your stress manifests. Then, most importantly, learn what you can do about it.
If you think you or someone you care about may be suffering from prolonged stress, anxiety, or any other medical health condition, we strongly recommend that you seek help from a mental health professional in order to receive a proper diagnosis and support. For those in crisis, Mentalhealth.org have a list of resources where you can find additional help: https://www.mentalhealth.org.nz/get-help/in-crisis/helplines/.
