Effects of Stress on Health
Why You Should Alleviate Timeshare Stress with the Help of Wesley Financial Group
We’ve all heard of the negative effects that stress can have on your body. Stress is known as a “killer” and with good reason. Of course, there are different types of stress, and some types are considered good stress. However, when we read about stress or think about stress ourselves, we’re usually not talking about the good kind of stress. In the timeshare advocacy industry, at Wesley Financial Group, we find that a lot of people find issues with their timeshare to be stressful. No matter what the cause of stress, it is important to find a way to stop the symptoms and address the root of the stress. At Wesley Financial Group, we aim to alleviate any stress caused by timeshare issues.
Effects of Stress on Health
All of us are accustomed to the stresses of everyday living. But when do we realize that the stress symptoms are becoming an issue? How much is too much to bear? What are some common stress symptoms and what is considered abnormal? How can we know the difference? The Mayo Clinic states that “Stress symptoms may be affecting your health, even though you might not realize it. You may think illness is to blame for that nagging headache, your frequent insomnia or your decreased productivity at work. But stress may actually be the culprit.” (“Stress Symptoms”, 2016). Often, we blame poor eating habits or lack of exercise as the main root of our symptoms such as these, but it seems that stress might be an additional reason for possible symptoms. You may think, what difference does it make? Well, it makes a huge difference. We shouldn’t ignore what our body is trying to tell us. We all have symptoms of stress, but we shouldn’t be so quick to shrug that off as the cost of living in today’s world. Many clients of Wesley Financial Group found themselves overwhelmed with stress because of timeshare issues before they came to us for help.
Whether it is timeshare problems or something else causing your stress, it is important not to overlook the symptoms associated with stress. Some serious health consequences can be the result of stress overload, or not considering the stress factors in your life. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Indeed, stress symptoms can affect your body, your thoughts and feelings, and your behavior. Being able to recognize common stress symptoms can give you a jump on managing them. Stress that’s left unchecked can contribute to many health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.” (“Stress Symptoms”, 2016). Sounds like addressing the underlying issues of stress may be one of the first steps in walking down the road to health. Speaking of addressing stress, what are some of the best ways to get rid of stress?
How to Take Steps to Reduce Stress
We know that stress is a “killer”, and that it can lead to a slew of health issues when unaddressed. Even at Wesley Financial Group, we’ve seen our clients before they came to us, with their fair share of stress. We have seen what stress has done to some of our clients before they were able to come to us for assistance. Stress is something that affects everyone. So, what are some of the recommended steps to take in order to reduce or eradicate certain types of stress? In Dr. Susan Heitler’s article in Psychology Today, she recommends three steps to problem-solve stress. Dr. Heitler states, “My #1 technique for dissipating stress is to solve the problem that is producing the stress. Unlike most stress-reduction methods, solving the problem removes stress at its roots.” (Heitler, 2017). Dr. Heitler’s recommendation makes a lot of sense. Rather than trying to mask the problem or the symptoms of stress, her plan of attack is actually addressing the underlying issue with problem-solving. Dr. Heitler’s three steps are straightforward and easy to implement, making them an ideal way to take action against stress. Of course, it is always best to seek medical advice if you have any stress symptoms that are affecting your health.
Three Steps to Address Stress
Dr. Heitler’s first recommended step is “Face it”. She states, “Problem-solving begins with turning around to squarely face the problem that is causing the stress. Stress, like anxiety, generally indicates that you are aware of a problem but not focused yet resolving it. Facing the problem squarely launches thinking about what to do about it.” Her second step is to, “Clarify your specific concerns.” Lastly, she recommends, “Create a plan of action.” Dr. Heitler elaborates, “Let’s review the three steps of problem-solving. The first step is to identify the situation that is triggering your stress. You may then have to do some seriously insightful thinking to clarify your underlying concerns. Lastly, it makes take some major creative thinking to come up with a plan of action that will satisfy your concerns.” (Heitler, 2017).
Sounds like a good plan of attack to reduce and eradicate stress. Let’s say that you realize that the main root of your stress is your timeshare. You happened to be duped, and you can’t stop being stressed about it. Once you’ve realized that this is the main root of your stress, it’s time to, “Create a plan of action”. Contact our office at Wesley Financial Group to see whether we can help you cancel your timeshare or reduce the level of ownership in your timeshare. If timeshare problems are indeed the root of your stress, you don’t need to “Create a plan of action” on your own. At Wesley Financial Group, that is our specialty. As Dr. Heitler so succinctly and perfectly states in her article, “The bottom line: stress is not for tolerating. Stress is a warning signal. It’s a blinking yellow light that says, Pay attention. Do something different. Take care of yourself!” (Heitler, 2017).
