Treatment of the Chronic stress:

Efficiency of overcoming a stress in many respects depends on psychological readiness to resist to it and on ability to manage the emotions in difficult situations.

Knowledge of features of own mentality is of great importance for management of stresses at the personal level. It is known that depending on personal features, reaction of each person to a stress is very specific. In this regard allocate six types of persons which differently react to a stress: ambitious type. People with the strong need for achievement of success treat this type. They are vigorous, mobile, aggressive and oriented to business.

Overloads, big intensity of activity and the interpersonal relations, insufficient understanding themselves are the reasons of a stress for them.

The main symptoms of a stress are sleeplessness, the increased blood pressure, heart troubles, excessive smoking; the quiet type is the carefree and quiet people oriented to the past, pensive and inactive. They differ in low tendency to stresses. People or requirements of professional activity which break measured a current of their life can become the reason of a stress; conscientious type. Carry people to this type petty, inquisitive, pedantic, dogmatic, stable, conservative and obligatory. They trust the authority and submit to traditions. For them people who overset their plans and stereotypes of behavior are the reasons of a stress. They have average degree of tendency to stresses, but are very sensitive to changes of their usual life activity; the type which does not uphold is people who cannot stand for themselves and assert the rights. They please others avoid the interpersonal conflicts, are afraid of the problem relations with each other. The internal tension arising because of the interpersonal relations is the frequent reason of stresses; Cheerful type. The people belonging to this type, strong, vigorous, Cheerful, impulsive, relaxed. For them frequent change of interests is characteristic.

Routine work and excessive internal tension is the reasons of a stress; the alarming type differs in high tendency to a stress. People of this type show concern about possible failures, have a low self-assessment. Responsible work and sharp changes in life are the reasons of a stress for them.

According to psychologists, overcoming crisis situations perhaps on condition of respect for the principles on the basis of which it is possible to create system of strategy of recovery mental balances. Treat such principles:

principle of satisfaction;

principle of reality;

principle of value;

principle of creativity.

The principle of satisfaction provides implementation of psychological protection on the basis of identification of the maximum degree of emotional wellbeing, possible in the conditions of an adverse situation. The mechanism of implementation of this high degree of welfare consists in cognitive and emotional infantilism of the person.

The principle of reality aims at sober approach to the world in which the movement to any purpose is considered not as rectilinear process of rise on all new and new steps, and assumes long, including bypass ways and indirect means. The psychological mechanism of implementation of the principle of reality consists in the basic in ability to patience.

The principle of value indicates the need constructions of systems of various vital alternatives on one valuable the basis therefore each of alternatives within this system of values receives the assessment. This priority list of estimates also serves as the instrument of rationalization of that situation which needs to be overcome.

The principle of creativity defines considerably self-improvement of the person, active and conscious creation by the person of itself, and not only in ideal sense, but also in the practical embodiment in real crisis situations.

Classes in elaboration of various strategy of the solution of vital tasks increase psychological stability of the person in the conditions demanding tension of spiritual powers. The major role is played at the same time not by(with) knowledge, but flexibility which allows to change timely and by that to normalize behavior.

Modern life of any person it is connected with big the overloads resulting from formation in the country of the new social and labor relations in the conditions of formation of market system of managing and adaptation of workers to it. The way of opposition to these is known for an overload - it is preventive preparation for new conditions and the new mode of activity. For this purpose it is necessary to know technology of preparation both specific methods and methods of protection of the person against overloads, from critical situations.

And very productive is interesting for the first time approach is presented in science, proves interrelation between a blood group of the person and his resistance to stress and specific ways of protection against stresogenny influences.

People of the I blood group are steady to stresogenny influence thanks to nadaktivny to immune system in the conditions of intensive exercise stresses.

People with the II blood group are steady to the stressors operating in the arranged structures of life support and if prefer vegetarian food. The best way of protection against stressors for representatives of this blood group will be self-complacency.

Representatives of the III blood group to the most nature are protected from stresogenny influences better than representatives of all other blood groups. They have a powerful immune system. And most efficiently oppositions to stresses they have a transition to creative activity. Release from the serious condition connected with stresogenny influence happens quickly enough and rather reliably. This way that will be more successful, than it is more representatives of the III blood group to combine intellectual activity with physical.

Stresses for representatives of the IV blood group sometimes happen destructive. And a way of removal of tension - "intellectual, followed physical vivacity". This way that is more productive, than more at the representative of the IV blood group are opportunities to enter intensive communication with relatives (and not only) people in the course of which they realize successfully dominant feature of the type - ability to adapt to any of a human environment.

In groups of people of each blood group the most efficient way of resistance to stress is development (perhaps and strong-willed) such features of these groups which are the most developed in their representatives, the most desired and the most productive. Equilibrations of an organism and mentality of a stresovanoa of the person occurs both due to desirable activity, and due to obtaining good results.
