Each day we go through our lives making decisions, worrying about the future, or maybe having concern about our health. It is only natural that we experience both stress and anxiety in some form at some level. Stress is defined as any demand placed on your brain or physical body, while anxiety is specified as fear, worry, or unease. Although defined differently, they are connected and share the same symptoms. Most of us experience stress, anxiety, or both at some point, whether from work or our personal life.
At The Princeton Senior Living we are aware of proven techniques to help ease the symptoms of stress and anxiety, including lifestyle changes, such as exercise and diet. We also know unmanaged stress and anxiety can interfere with your daily life and affect your physical and mental health.
When I feel anxious or stressed, I tend to get irritable and impatient. I also get the feeling of being overwhelmed and sometimes can feel depressed. Some things that have caused me stress and anxiety are big changes in my life and not having control over a situation. Another thing that causes me anxiety is when I’m mistreated by another person for no apparent reason.
Stress and anxiety can cause me to have headaches, sleep problems, fatigue, and high blood pressure. One way I like to try and relax after a stressful situation is to just take deep breathes and calm down. Another way is to take a walk outside to get fresh air.
Some stress and anxiety are expected, but if you feel it becoming unmanageable and affecting your daily life, a healthcare professional can help you develop new coping skills.
