Are you feeling stressed?
In the current climate of things, many are feeling the stress from work, financial and personal issues.
Chronic stress over a prolonged time can cause and exacerbate underlying mental disorders such as depression, anxiety and other personality disorders.
Long-term stress can cause cardiovascular disease, including heart disease, high blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythms, heart attacks and stroke.
Such pressure if left unchecked can contribute to extreme behaviours, including suicide.
These things can be avoided or minimised if we have control of our thoughts and know how to manage stress.
Here are a few simple tips:
1. Remember you are not alone, talk to someone and seek help.
2. Take time out, the world doesn't end here. Look for available options.
3. Sleep your problems away, take naps and let your brain rest.
4. Take deep breaths, practice deep breathing for about 10 seconds.
5. Don't indulge in substance abuse as solution, take a walk, hike, cycle or hit the gym instead.
