Learn to Deal with Stress and Anxiety

Everyone has some kind of stress in your life and some people are able to deal with stress better than others. Stress and how you react to it can cause you to have other problems. If stress gets out of control in your life, it can cause health issues.

Coping with stress and anxiety can help you to live a better life and it can improve your overall health. Stress can lead to things like headaches, mental disorders, heart disease, stomach problems and more.

There isn’t one answer on how to deal with stress but if you find that you can’t deal with it on your own, you might need to talk to a therapist. When you have been stressed for long periods of time, there are things called DBT or Dialectical Behavior Therapy that you can do and one of these include the acronym ACCEPTS. This stands for:

• Activities.
• Contributing.
• Comparisons.
• Emotions.
• Pushing away.
• Thoughts.
• Sensations.

By doing this, you are able to make a space between what you are feeling and the stress. You can use these things to help you to understand what you are stressed about and how to deal with it healthily.

You can do activities such as getting up and going for a walk or just doing something like washing dishes. Being mindful about what you are feeling can lead you to go outside in nature or to do some kind of workout to get rid of anxiety.

Your body releases cortisol when you are stressed and once you work out, you can reduce this stress and the cortisol that is released.

Using the pushing away idea can help you to feel better fat. If you’re stressed about things that you can’t control, you can push them away so that you can deal with the stress of it at a later date.

Some stress might not be able to be fixed as easily and if you are dealing with things like financial uncertainty, health problems, identity, trauma, or other things, you might have to learn to deal with these a different way or ask someone to help you.
