Stress is common in today generation, as it is due to our dreams of doing something better and more better in our life. People just run after their dreams and work constantly without any rest which ultimately leads to hormones imbalance or there is mix of hormones in the body which cause someone a heavy stress like headache , weakness , Insomnia, Loss of Sexual will etc.
Stress is primarily a physical response. Stress generally refers to two things: the psychological perception of pressure, on the one hand, and the body’s response to it, on the other, which involves multiple systems, from metabolism to muscles to memory. Through hormonal signaling, the perception of danger sets off an automatic response system.
However stress is not always as bad as we think sometime that same stress allow a person to work better under pressure , stress sometimes motivate a person to work best but if it happen constantly there is a problem and your body in turn has to pay for it ultimately.
In general, stress is related to both external and internal factors.
External factors include the physical environment, including your job, your relationships with others, your home, and all the situations, challenges, difficulties, and expectations you’re confronted with on a daily basis.
Internal factors determine your body’s ability to respond to, and deal with, the external stress-inducing factors. Internal factors which influence your ability to handle stress include your nutritional status, overall health and fitness levels, emotional well-being, and the amount of sleep and rest you get.

Ayurveda shines in its capacity to distill a host of complex maladies into an elegantly simple collection of qualitative patterns, which help to illuminate a clear path toward healing for each individual. The Ayurvedic approach to managing stress is a beautiful example of this.
One of Ayurveda’s foundational principles is that like increases like and that opposites balance.Ayurveda relies on twenty gunas (qualities)—organized into ten pairs of opposites. one group of ten gunas is deemed to be building, nourishing, and anabolic in nature, while the other is reducing, lightening, and catabolic in nature.
If like increases like, opposites balance, and the stress response is unequivocally reducing, lightening, and catabolic in nature, then the antidote to excess stress is to offer our systems an abundance of the entire group of building, nourishing qualities—through our diets, our lifestyle, our practices, our relationships—basically, anywhere that we can get them. This means welcoming influences that are heavy, grounding, slow, unctuous, nourishing, soft, and stabilizing, while doing our best to minimize the influence of their opposites. At its core, the Ayurvedic approach to balancing excess stress is really that simple.
Some steps can be taken which can reduce stress:
- Take a break from fast, running life.
- Rest for sometime in nature’s lap. Nature is the biggest healer.
- Head massage relaxes the nervous system and helps to relieve stress.
- Indulge in quality self care. Give time to yourself, your health and your hobbies.
- Nasya i.e. applying medicated oil through nasal passage. It soothes these delicate tissues, promotes unobstructed breathing, relieves accumulated stress, and supports mental clarity.
- Massage your feet before bed : This practice grounds the energy, soothes the nervous system, reduces stress, quiets the mind, and promotes sound sleep.
- Pranayama, yoga and meditation are effective means to reduce stres, resetting the nervous system, and cultivating a healthier physiological response to stress.
- A number of Ayurvedic herbs also foster health in the mind and the nervous system and can be incredibly supportive.
