Development of stress resistance for people with diabetes

freestyle libre cover

Only 30 minutes a day is given to yourself, your beloved, and you can, help to avoid the terrible consequences of sugar disease.

Medics in their practice often encounter cases where a stressful situation, which the patient experienced too violently, instantly triggered the process of diabetes and led to a diabetic coma. Such situations are most common for children and very young people who are not adapted to life and have not learned to properly handle stress yet. So when they say that the prevention of diabetes implies the development of stress resistance - these are not just words, which can be ignored. Against the background of a strong stressful situation, you can not only get yourself diabetes but also accelerate the progress of the disease by two or even three times.

It is necessary to learn how to handle life's failures and losses in the right way. If a person is especially sensitive and susceptible, it is worth limiting contact with negatively or aggressively inclined people. Don't indulge in illusions that nicotine or alcohol will help to cope with psychological problems, it is better to pay more attention to self-development.

"Everything will be zen": 10 methods of increasing stress resistance

    1. Identify stressors. Try to "pick apart the bones" of what causes you the most anxiety: difficult relationships, criticism from superiors, business trips abroad, giving presentations.
    2. Influence the stressors if you can. Every problem is 50% made up of factors that we can control. For example, every grocery shopping trip you take on a weekend is stressful. Does waiting in line bother you? Try ordering your groceries online next time.
    3. Prioritize. Trying to do more, we end up leaving a sea of unfinished business, and enthusiasm is quickly lost.
    4. Stick to work-life balance. Researchers at London  University College found that people who work more than 55 hours a week have a 13 percent higher risk of heart attack and a 33 percent higher risk of stroke than those who work 35 to 40 hours a week. 
    5. Practice healthy sleep habits. Studies show that people who get enough sleep (but also don't oversleep) live longer and have a lower risk of developing mental illness. 
    6. Get rid of negative attitudes. It's hard to form a habit by avoiding an action: "I won't work out of the office," "I won't be surfing the Facebook feed all day." Focus on what you will do instead of working outside the office or scrolling through social media.
    7. Organize a general cleaning. Clutter creates a feeling of chaos, instability, and can provoke stress. Do you find it hard to find the things you need, and out of a dozen pens, less than half of them write? It seems like it's time to get rid of them and organize your life. 
    8. Use your time on the road to your advantage. Simple rituals, such as reading a book on the way home, allow you to smoothly transition from one role to another - home. By repeating this ritual, you will leave work stress at work and reduce anxiety before coming home.
    9. "Filter" the information. One of the most common causes of anxiety is negative news. They impose a stressful lifestyle and negatively affect your psycho-emotional state.
    10. One last piece of advice - don't accumulate stress. The theory of cumulative stress refers to energetic people who do 100 tasks in a day and stay awake. But at an unexpected moment, they realize that their "battery is dead" and their well-being is heading toward zero. Learn how to pause and do a digital detox when fatigue appears and concentration decreases.
