What is a healthy reaction to stress caused by life changes?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Stress is a natural side effect of life. When things change, as they always will, it takes us a little time to reorganise our thoughts and emotions.
There is nothing unhealthy about feeling stressed for short periods. Where stress becomes extended into a long term state though is when it becomes unhealthy and starts to damage us.
Typically what happens is that people hold onto old goals, thoughts and ways of reacting and in the context of a new reality, this brings them stress.
A healthy reaction to stress is to adapt our thoughts and feelings to the constantly changing reality of life.Source(s): youremotionalgps.com
