STRESS COUNSELING in TAMPA FL. & BRANDON FL.


WHAT IS STRESS?


As a stress therapy center in Tampa Fl. & Brandon Fl., we explain stress to ourclients as our body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When we feel threatened, your nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol, which rouse the body for emergency action. Your heart pounds faster, muscles tighten, blood pressure rises, breath quickens, and your senses become sharper. These physical changes increase your strength and stamina, speed your reaction time, and enhance your focus.


This is known as the “fight or flight” stress response and is your body’s way of protecting you. When working properly, stress helps you stay focused, energetic, and alert. In emergency situations, stress can save your life—giving you extra strength to defend yourself, for example, or spurring you to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident.


Stress can also help you rise to meet challenges. Stress is what keeps you on your toes during a presentation at work, sharpens your concentration when you’re attempting the game-winning free throw, or drives you to study for an exam when you’d rather be watching TV.


But beyond your comfort zone, stress stops being helpful and can start causing major damage to your mind and body.
