HOW TO REDUCE STRESS AND ANXIETY
Do you think there’s really a way to lower the level of stress and anxiety? No, but there are techniques that can help you and alleviate the “problem”!
First of all, are anxiety and stress the same? Not really, anxiety is defined as “fear or nervousness about what might happen”, it is a cognitive construct about a future possibility, while stress is experienced as something that is happening now.
The most common signals are:
- Presence of emotions such as anger and depression;
- Migraines, pain in the back, jaw, neck;
- Digestive problems such as stomach acidity and diarrhea;
- Increased blood pressure, accelerated heart rate, sweating, tremors, shortness of breath, or tightness in the chest.
