Loosing Memory by Stress

 Hunger is a stress; so are the more complex human desire to pursue knowledge or to create. Even Hans Selye, the Canadian physician who gave stress its more popular modern-day meaning, said that without stress, there's no life. The reason we attribute a negative connotation to stress is perhaps our excessive exposure to the dangers of pushing ourselves to the brink; the benefits of staying alert go unsung.


Stress occurs all the time, to everyone, and your stress level is healthy as long as there's a spring in your step. But you can tell when it crosses the danger mark: you stop enjoying what you do and start experiencing fatigue and anxiety.People who engage in monotonous work usually suffer from low good stress levels, they feel under-motivated and listless, and feel as if they are trapped in a routine where they have no say.

Much of our everyday destiny is how we shape it. For instance, if getting late to work is your big worry, rest your alarm, According to recent research at University Medical Center, Chicago, people who worry a lot more likely to develop Alzheimer's. High levels of stress hormones may damage regions in the brain for memory. There is also evidence to show that severe stress can derail the immune system

But all people who have high stress levels don't have high illness levels. Studies have shown that such healthy go-getters have in common the three Cs: control, which is a sense of direction in life; commitment, to work or a hobby or family; and challenge, accepting changes in life as normal. Obviously we need to learn the relearn life skills like assertiveness and positive thinking to become high achievers who are healthy as well.

There is no denying stress, or avoiding it: It's a survival mechanism. Without stress we wouldn't have been there to tell the story of evolution.
