April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight an area of concern for the World Health Organization (WHO).
Each year, the theme for World Health Day relates to a current health issue affecting the globe. There seems to be a never-ending supply of health concerns that affect people’s well-being. Whatever the WHO theme, being concerned about maintaining good health is timely any day of the year, anywhere in the world. And one theme that is worth consideration is the rise of stress.
The world is a stressful place to live in these days. Perhaps the increase of psychological tension is a by-product of so-called modern life. With the technological advances in instant communication via devices, people are inundated with worldwide, bad news events minute-by-minute during any given day, adding to stress levels.
WebMD.com provides an interesting definition of this health hazard: “stress is the body’s reaction to harmful situations—whether they’re real or perceived.” That last bit is of vital importance because many people experience stress from situations that are taking place only in their minds. Justifiable or not, worrying about what might happen can lead to needlessly disappointing experiences, sleepless nights and ill health.
There’s no way to measure the accumulation of mental and physical damage from stress on human health. But endless causes for concern—remote or personal—that filter through the modern human mind can add up. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Stress that’s left unchecked can contribute to many health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.”
Everyone experiences stress. Some of it can actually be helpful for getting things done or preventing you from getting hurt. But this only works in small doses. Otherwise, you have to find a way to manage stress. Composure is the key.
