It’s important now more than ever, to manage worry, stress, and anxiety. There’s a mind/body connection between the powerful thoughts we think when we’re stressed and how they show up as physical symptoms in the body.
Physical responses to stress we should be aware of. Difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite or overeating, upset stomach, headaches, loss of libido, chest tightness and heart palpitations, sweating or shaking, infections, illnesses, skin rashes, or dental symptoms such as grinding of teeth.
Also, we can experience feelings of impatience, edginess, anger, lethargy, moodiness, lack of focus and concentration.
For a better understanding, I want to talk about the definition of three words, worry, stress, and anxiety:
Worry: This is when you have repeating thoughts about something you’re concerned about. For example, did I shut the garage door when I left the house?
Stress: is a natural response to a concern when we’re feeling troubled or threatened from life. When there’s constant stress or overload stressor it can overload the body’s immune system and settle in as dis-ease.
Anxiety: is prolonged feelings of worry and stress. Sleeplessness and exacerbation of physical symptoms in the body can come from anxiety.
These five ways to manage stress aren’t the cure-all but they will help give you some relief with stressful thoughts, feelings, and physical ailments you might be experiencing. And like anything with practice and persistence, you will get better at noticing when you are worrying.
