Stress has multiple effects on the human body: it makes you more irritable, it decreases your power of focus, it makes you lack sleep or get extremely tired in the middle of the day and it can even contribute to the increasing of the negative effects produced by other chronic diseases. It is probably the biggest harm of the society and it strucks almost every individual from the society.
As nowadays everyone gets affected by stress, the asthmatics could not make an exception. Yet, what is worth in their case is the fact that stress can further increase the asthma symptoms and make the asthmatic feel worse when stressed. Many asthmatic have claimed that most of the asthma attacks have happened during periods when they were highly stressed. Thus the combination asthma plus stress is not quite a happy one.
Even though stress alone is not capable of producing asthma, it is able to further increase the gravity of this ailment, by contributing to the increase in intensity and duration of the asthma attacks. Thus, it is highly important that you learn to relax and remain calm in any situation. This means that you will have to learn how to cope with different situations without panicking. Also, it means that you will have to do your schedule in such a way as to have time to do each and every thing at your own peace. When feeling the pressure and the tension on your shoulders, there are many more chances of being hit by an asthma attack, so learn to take your time and not get panicked if you do not finish everything in due time. Remember that your health must be your main concern.
In order to get rid of stress, you should also start attending courses which teach you how to control your responses to stress. This way you will be able to manage your own capacities better and will not let stress overwhelm you, no matter how many things you have to do and how many problems you will have to solve. Meditation and relaxation sessions are also highly indicated if you want to get rid of stress.
