by Mary Milder LISW

STRESSED OUT Whether it is caused by work pressure, financial worries, or relationship problems, we all experience stress that gives rise to sleep problems and raises the risk of depression. Defined by the National Institute of Mental Health as the “brain’s response to any demand,” stress can help spur us to positive action. On the other hand, when stress is constant or we overreact to stress, it can be very counterproductive. For instance, one study found that stress could increase the risk of heart attack by 23%, largely due to reduced blood flow to the heart. We may also smoke or overeat in response to stress, which can lead to obesity and high blood pressure. Psychotherapy can reduce these, and other, risks. Mental health professionals often help people reduce and manage their stress. They can also help people work through other mental health issues that have developed while coping with high levels of stress over a period of time. Our compassionate counselors can help. Whether you may face life’s daily stress or a chronic mental illness, we are here for you. Call our office today at 712-364-3500 or 800-3251192. Our address is 700 East 2nd St., Ida Grove. We help people cope with everyday living. P.S. One of the best ways to tackle stress is to seek support from others. Aside from talking to friends and family, a therapist can show ways to turn negative responses to stress into positive ones.
