WHAT IS STRESS?
Stress is the emotional and the physical way in which we respond to pressure. Stress is not a new trend but we are seeing more people aware of stress as a big health concern and at Kamalaya there are many ways we can address it.
Stress can cause both mental and physical symptoms. The effects of stress are different for different people. Almost everyone experiences events that they find difficult to cope with.
Stress-related symptoms include:
The mental (emotional) symptoms of stress include:
• Inability to concentrate
• Feeling excessively tired
• Trouble sleeping
The physical symptoms of stress include:
• Dry mouth
• A pounding heart
• Difficulty breathing
• Stomach upset
• Frequent urination
• Sweating palms
• Tight muscles that may cause pain and trembling
It’s almost impossible to live without some stress. And most of us wouldn’t want to, because it gives life some spice and excitement, but if stress gets out of control, it may harm your health, your relationships, and your enjoyment of life. We have specific Stress & Burnout programmes at Kamalaya to help you keep your health levels in check.
Physical asanas (yoga postures) establish greater strength, flexibility, and balance. Additional physiological benefits include improved circulation, deepened sleep and improved posture and reduction in structural pains.
The warning signs that you’re suffering stress and burnout can start with the feeling that every day is a bad day; when caring about your work or home life seems to be a total waste of energy.
Prana (Devanagari: pra-Na) is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘breath’ and is understood as the vital, life-sustaining force of living beings and the vital energy in all natural processes of the universe.
Characterized by constant fatigue, insomnia, low blood pressure, back and joint pain, decreased immunity and anxiety, it is the result of the adrenal glands going into overdrive, eventually becoming underactive before suffering a full burnout.
