Mental disorders involve significant disturbances to the way we think, the way we behave and regulate emotions, according to a recent survey:-
26 percent of Indians are stressed due to their current working conditions,
17 percent are stressed because of their financial instability,
14 are stressed due to relationships.
So, what does stress do to the body? Does stress have any effect on the body or is it something just outside?
Stress affects the anatomy of the body.
The ways stress affects us:-
1. Headaches and migraine
2. Respiratory system (conditions like heart attacks stroke hypertension)
5. Anxiety and depression
My hi-five's in my recommendations on how you can deal with are detailed in the video.
All in all, be patient with yourself, it is very normal to experience stress and go through a difficult situation. We all take time to recover from stress, take one step at a time one thing at a time and give it time, for the stress to pass. With time, you will notice that as days pass by, symptoms gradually come down, so be patient with yourself love yourself have self-care spend time with your loved ones share information with your loved ones.
Not everyone requires treatment for stress because most people recover on their own however if you see that the stress is disturbing your daily routine and not allowing you to focus, it is significantly disturbing your day-to-day functioning, then, please seek for professional help. Consult either a psychologist or a psychiatrist depending on your mental health condition.
