Chronic stress causes an imbalance in the brain hormone regulation as well as the brain-adrenal gland link. (the HPA axis)

This results in pain system amplification called “central sensitisation”.

Chronic pain disrupts the normal circadian rhythms of the body.

Disruption of the normal circadian rhythm results in poor sleep. Poor sleep causes poor memory, fatigue, lowered resistance to infection and increased pain. An increase in pain further disrupts sleep and leads to depletion of brain hormones such as serotonin. Low serotonin levels leads to an increase in the central nervous system hormone, substance P which in turn sensitises the pain system further.Poor sleep and stress leads to increased fatigue and bowel dysfunctions such as irritable bowel syndrome. Chronic stress leads to depletion of adrenal gland hormones and lowered immune function. Lowered adrenal gland function leads to lower blood pressure and more fatigue.

You do not need to live in this cycle! There are treatment options for each area of dysfunction using lifestyle practices, therapy, nutrition and other approaches.

Mental and psychological well-being encompasses the way you feel about yourself, but also the way you deal with external situations and the quality of your relationships.

It’s important to remember that positive mental health is not simply the absence of mental health issues, such as depression or anxiety. Being mentally healthy is predominantly about the presence of positive characteristics such as a feeling of purpose, contentment, maintaining fulfilling relationships and participating in life to the fullest.

Other features of positive mental health include:

• Feeling positive emotions like optimism, happiness, love, compassion, satisfaction and joy.

• Goal-setting

• Having confidence in new situations
avoiding self-blame paired with good self-esteem.

Why is positive mental health important?

Positive mental health allows you to enjoy all the activities you want to participate in. It doesn’t mean you will never be sad or go through emotionally-challenging times. However, those with positive mental health will be able to bounce back more easily from these experiences - this is called mental resilience.

Having mental resilience means individuals have the tools to cope with adversity, trauma and stress.
