Sometimes stress is just mental or emotional, but at others it may even spill over into how you feel physically, and can have an impact on how your body feels. You may find yourself looking for ways to start relieving areas of stress on your body. This can be unpleasant, and may even be downright painful depending on how the stress is manifesting itself. The upside is, though, that it doesn't have to be difficult to release stress from your body and start feeling better today. If you're looking for ways to help your body feel more relaxed, at ease, and tension free, here are some things to try.
Are you worried? You are not alone. People worry all the time; it is only human to worry. However, if not regulated, mild worrying can easily transition to chronic worrying and eventually cause a panic disorder, anxiety, depression, and also insomnia. But that is not all.
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, those who suffer from depression or anxiety claim an increase in their anxiety due to lack of sleep with 52 percent of men and 42 percent of women stating it directly affected their ability to remain focused the following day.
Your social life can also suffer which can lead to depression or increased depression signs. Without quality sleep, the body cannot repair and becomes a state of sleep deprivation that stacks nightly. This leads to a rapid decline of behavioral response including moodiness and irritability.
How to tackle anxiety depends on the underlying event. One therapy is cognitive behavioral theory (CBT) and can benefit adults in treating anxiety. Learn more about CBT in a blog featuring Dr. Angie Randazzo.
