Stress can derive from nearly all aspects of life. Whether it originates at work or in school, within a relationship, through financial burdens, somatic complaints, or another matter altogether; it is a familiar feeling for many. Despite stress being such a common burden, many suffer quietly through their struggle.
Over time, stress can snowball and take its toll on our minds, bodies, and overall well-being, resulting in panic attacks, depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. Not only do the stresses of daily living impact our minds, they can also impact nearly all of our physiological functions including respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine, gastrointestinal, nervous system, reproductive system, and musculoskeletal system.
Because of the wide scope of problems stress can cause if not addressed, it is critical to develop coping mechanisms to minimize stress and emotional difficulties. Adopting these coping abilities requires examining both internal and external factors that contribute to negative feels. At Psychotherapy Associates of North Reading and Amesbury, stress management also means exploring a patient’s history to see what types of triggers historically result in stress and anxiety.
