IS STRESS CREATING ANXIETY?
What is the last thing that has brought you stress?
Stress is your body's response to threats or challenges. Stressors activate our fight or flight response. This mode helps us to defend ourselves from possible danger by secreting hormones that give us energy to either fight or flee from the threat. The body does a great job helping us to survive, but if this system is constantly activated then it can have a great impact on our body function.
Start using journaling as a way to better manage your stressors. Life stressors will always be there, why not use journaling to manage your response and interaction toward it. When we relax our body then it will relax the mind, and vice versa. Journaligng is one avenue to relax your mind. Journaling provides a space and outlet for racing thoughts.
JOURNALING is the act of writing down thoughts, emotions and experiences
