Dealing with emotional stress is one of the toughest aspects to life when you don’t feel equipped to cope with it properly.
All of us experience some anxiety at various points in our lives. But emotional stress gives one a feeling of distress, depression and higher than normal levels of anxiety.
If you’re not careful, family problems, relationship problems, or deaths of people close to you can result in unimaginable stress. It’s important to recognize the root cause before setting out to deal with it.
Getting the help you need from friends, a counselor or a family friend might possibly help you deal with the emotional pain. However, let’s explore this issue with the mindset that you’d like to first work on the issue from within.
Stress manifests itself in different ways in our bodies. Some people gain weight while others lose weight dramatically while battling stress.
Recurring disturbances in your sleep might be a a result of emotional stress.
Unexplained physical symptoms such as anger management issues, tiredness, stomach pain, chest pain, constipation, nausea, dizziness, gas, obsession, or forgetful behaviors are signs that you’re in emotional distress.
People dealing with emotional stress tend to lock themselves away from the outside world, sometimes becoming extreme introverts.
Convert the emotional pain to physical pain and try to relieve it by focusing on it. Emotional stress often manifests in the form of a dull pain either in the chest or head, or in an unsettled feeling in the stomach. Try noticing the physical manifestation of the pain and then use meditation until you feel the pain dissipate.
Try to “get away” mentally from your problems. We’re not saying to ignore your pain exactly, but distraction from it for a time can be helpful.
Distracting yourself by getting involved with a new hobby, meeting new people, seeing a fun movie or focusing on other aspects of your life that are enjoyable can help in reducing the pain you feel.
What can you change about your situation? Is there something you can do that will alter things? Often, if you figure this out, you’ll begin to feel more in control, which can lead to a more relaxed state of mind.
Meditation helps in dealing with emotional stress. It enables you to “quiet your mind” and choose positive thoughts to focus on.
There are a number of meditation techniques available for you to try out. A simple way to begin is to lie down and focus on your breathing. Breathe in slowly through your nose and then let it our slowly through your mouth.
Practice focusing on your breathing in this way until your scattered and racing thoughts die down to no thoughts at all…just stillness. This is highly effective in reducing those emotional thoughts from taking over and causing you anxiety.
Sound therapy is highly effective in terms of lowering stress and anxiety levels. Consider for a moment how soothing a calming piece of music can be. Now, consider that your body and its organs, tissues, and muscles are all made up of vibrational frequencies.
Sound healing has the ability to help lower a racing heart, raise mind clarity, reduce tension, and bring an overall feeling of calm, bliss and inner peace.
This is accomplished because this therapy introduces calming frequencies to the cells of your body that have become lost in chaos, unable to properly communicate with one another. When this happens to your cells, you feel anxiety and dealing with emotional stress can seem impossible.
However, when your cells are brought back into alignment, you not only feel less anxious, but any physical conditions caused by stress are now reduced. This includes all types of physical ailments, such as stress headaches, chest pains, stomach pains, nausea, gas, lightheadedness, dizziness, depression, trouble breathing, high blood pressure, etc.
