Stress Management – Anxiety and Worry? Anxiety and worry are the two most common stress related sources. Health issues, financial problems, family concerns, and a list of other situations, can cause unhealthy stress related problems if they are not resolved in a healthy manner. Everyone deals with stress in different ways, some may use denial which is a common way to deal with life issues. Denial may happen in domestic violence relationships, alcoholic families, or even with someone facing the loss of a loved one or a serious illness. Someone in denial is saying “Nothing is wrong” and “Everything is fine”.
Running away or hiding from a life of stress are usually those who use alcohol or drugs to “escape” or “avoid” their problems. For example, the teenager who stays away from home, or someone who stays at work, are ones who are attempting to escape their problems. Procrastination can be a form of anxiety and worry. The “fear” of what will happen if you face the problem often leads to “putting off the inevitable”. This behavior can also contribute to stress for the mind rather than from the situation.
Even tho facing things head on can sometimes seem too difficult, it is definitely the healthiest way to handle the situation that would otherwise create anxiety, worry or fear Getting the answers and addressing the problem instead of speculating or denying, or running away and hiding from them, is the only way you will be able to reduce the stress of these type of situations.
Take the anxiety and worry out of your life and save your health.
