We all experience stress in our daily lives. Some stress is actually good for us and helps us adapt to life changes and difficult situations. However, stressful events can also become overwhelming and too difficult to reasonably tolerate. Stress comes in many forms, including work-related or financial stress, challenges with social or interpersonal relationships, and significant or unexpected life changes. Even positive life experiences such as an upcoming marriage, vacation, career or job change, planned retirement, or moving to a new home or neighborhood can create excess stress leading to feelings of overwhelm and overload.
When stress becomes chronic or prolonged or is not managed in effective ways, this can lead to physical and psychological effects including anxiety. Symptoms of anxiety may include excessive worry or fear, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, tense or achy muscles, inability to concentrate, avoidance of a feared object, person, or place, dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath or panic attacks.
If you are a loved one are experiencing any of the above issues, our PCS-G therapists can assist you in learning how to understand, manage, decrease and handle your stress in healthy and effective ways.
