A few interesting reads if you would like to understand more. I like to explain things in a simplistic manner so everyone can gain a real understanding.

Stress and Balance

Stress, what is it?

The Stress Response, according to Seyle (1956) is a signal to us that an event has occurred that is not expected or did not play out as we expected (or planned).

Our brain is quite simple really, it is like a big information storage facility. In a situation our brain does a quick google search., However, it looks for ANY information that possibly matches the current situation. For example, if I was searching for shoes, google would show me all the shoes you can wear on your feet, but, what if I was looking for horse shoes?

Stress and Anxiety

What exactly is anxiety?

Let me put it simply. We like to predict and plan everything that is happening in our life. We like to wake up in the morning, and have a fairly good idea of how the day will go. This is sort of like our dislike for change. If our day does not go the way we imagined it would go, we think of it as a change. And that immediately puts up our sense of unease and uncertainty.

Depression

What is depression?

What are the two most common mental health problems today? Depression and Anxiety according to Mental Health Foundation. In my previous post, I answered the question about what is Anxiety, in this post, I would like to explore what is depression.
