Relationship between Stress and Anger

My name is Suzi Tyler of Rapid-Health.  I help my clients to unlock their potential for love, fulfilling relationships, vibrant health and happiness.  Powerful ways I help my clients manage stress include:  1.  Meditation/mindfulness.  2.  Rapid NLP Pattern Interrupt.   3.   If appropriate, trauma resolution, tapping (acupressure) technique and belief change.  

How would I describe Stress?  Stress is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event or threat to survival.  You could say stress is a survival mechanism to mobilise us into action and keep us safe in an emergency.  Unfortunately unbridled stress can spoil our long term health, happiness and freedom, if we don’t know how to manage it.

Stressors:  Fear, anxiety, pressure of exams, expectations, indecision, relationship conflict or loss, moving house, humiliation, rejection, perceived injustice, overwhelm, striving to be perfect, physical pain, low from an addiction, emotions of shame, helplessness and hopelessness, feeling out of control, offended, forced, trapped, personal boundaries violated, anger.

Is stress harmful, or does it have some benefits?  You may have heard that a little bit of stress is actually good for you.  In the right amount adrenaline can power you through a long day at work, boost your workouts and focus the mind.  Stress chemicals that include adrenaline and cortisol prepare you for a perceived threat.   When the perceived ‘threat’ is over, the body will do everything it can to re-establish balance.   However, if the threat is workload, perfectionism, a difficult relationship, hatred of another or self loathing, these will compound over time and threaten your quality of life.    What feels good to conquer the day, will eventually turn nasty.   So when does stress turn nasty…

Harmful effects of stress: fatigue, depression, anxiety, more prone to colds and flu, hormonal imbalances, Thyroid dysfunction, immune disorders, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, ME, MS and IBS.   If the thyroid system becomes over strained…it is irreversible.  Stress has been linked to high blood pressure, strokes, acne, impaired memory and dementia.  Headaches and weight gain are worstened by too much stress.

Do we have a warning flag that indicates too much stress?  If you are feeling fatigued/exhausted, moody, irritable, frustrated, easy to anger or more intolerant than usual.

How are anger and stress related?  Does one affect the other differently?  Stress predisposes us to feel anger more easily.  Anger is actually a protective mechanism to protect us from painful feelings that oftentimes makes you feel vulnerable and not in control.  e.g. shame, humiliation, perceived wrong doing, being forced to do something, trapped, pressured.  It is a very common habit to cover up fear, hurt and sadness with anger.  Interestingly pain alone is not enough to cause anger.  Anger occurs when pain is combined with some anger triggering thought.  Anger likes a target – depression is anger directed inwards.  Aggression can lead to unbridled rage  – now you have a huge potential of doing something you’ll regret.   The world is a safe and friendly when we choose kindest over hatred; empathy and compassion over fear.

Are you sensitive to stress or sugar?

Sugar and spice might create little girls that are nice, but sugar and stress creates distress in the form of weight gain.  

Are you sensitive to stress or sugar?  Sugar is added to so many foods that you may have been consuming more than you realised.  In addition, stress has become a ‘normal’ state which contributes to extra sugar being dumped into the blood stream and converted back into fat around the middle.    Stress and sugar levels are in a state of constant rebalancing.  Too much of any results in hormone imbalance – cravings – more weight (especially round the middle) and more stress!

How can stress spike sugar levels in the blood? ~  Feeling pressured or overwhelmed would do it.  Sleep deprivation is another serious stress affecting most parents!    Stress linked to  work pressures, not enough time, dissatisfaction with self,  body image, money worries, comparing self to others, feelings of ‘not enough’, unhappiness, anger,  frustration, guilt, blame….  consider now, what are your current stressors?

Rate yourself out of 10, with 10 feeling very stressed and 0 feeling neutral – how stressed have you felt over the last month?
Anything over 5 is too high.  Find one thing you can do to release this stress within the next few hours?

Do you have  fat around your middle but don’t know why?
This is another symptom of stress and food sensitivity, often caused by eating whilst stressed.

To find out how I can help you, get in touch with Suzi on 07836 635233 and leave your name, number and a brief message and you will be contacted within 48 hours.

“If you are insterested in learning more, read on…”

So why does stress cause sugar sensitivity?  Stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline spike sugar levels.  Your gut has a memory….so you may have become sensitive to sugar during this time without realising.  An explosive argument can be an approx equivalent of about 5 bars of chocolate.

Stress – Sugar Sensitivity – Weight gain ~  Stress not only causes your blood sugar levels to fluctuate, spike and gain weight.  The resulting crash in sugar causes sugar cravings, having you reach for the chocolate, carbs, sweets…All of this  is a core contributor to food intollerances, especially sugar sensitivity.

If that wasn’t enough, your gut makes associations  with the foods you are eating  to the ‘unhappy’ stress you are feeling and REMEMBERS….

Enzymes are needed to digest your food and enzymes are blocked by the stress hormone cortisol.  Stressful feelings = poor digestion, food intolerance, IBS …. more stress.  Good feelings = easy, comfortable, calm digestion.

Can you reset your gut memory? 

Yes – definitely.

How to create a calm comfortable gut

1.  Re-map gut memory associated to stress

2.  Re-map your beliefs associated to stress

3.  Relax and enjoy a healthy, balanced lifestyle that includes sugar, in fact anything with good feelings.

Does stress cause weight gain?

Does stress cause weight gain?  Are you noticing more weight around your middle? After you have ruled out pregnancy or a huge dinner, a significant reason people gain weight is because stress releases cortisol which also increases blood sugar. When the stressful event is over, you still have a high level of blood sugar and the excess glucose becomes stored as fat.

Stress is a natural response to a threat, ‘perceived’ or imagined fear. But constant ‘stressing’ is a habit behaviour that harms your health, energy and beautiful body. Like any habit, it can be retrained into something more preferable.

So, if you are needing some stress relief and stress management help, get in touch.  Suzi sees private clients one-to-one in Kent and London W1.
