The Township Senior Living Explores Stress and Anxiety Management

Category: Senior Living

Author: Rebecca Meagher, Director of Wellness

Each day we go through our lives making decisions, worrying about the future, or maybe having concern about our health. It is only natural that we experience both stress and anxiety in some form at some level. Stress is defined as any demand placed on your brain or physical body, while anxiety is specified as fear, worry, or unease. Although defined differently, they are connected and share the same symptoms. Most of us experience stress, anxiety, or both at some point, whether from work or our personal life.

At The Township Senior Living we are aware of proven techniques to help ease the symptoms of stress and anxiety, including lifestyle changes, such as exercise and diet. We also know unmanaged stress and anxiety can interfere with your daily life and affect your physical and mental health.

When I get stressed, I tend to get nervous and tense, especially through my shoulders. There can be many causes of stress and anxiety, including financial concerns, work related issues, or conflict with family or coworkers.

Symptoms of stress and anxiety can include nervousness, restlessness, increased heart rate, sweating, and trembling. Techniques to decrease symptoms of stress and anxiety can include self-care routines, mindfulness, and seeking help from others.

Some stress and anxiety are expected, but if you feel it becoming unmanageable and affecting your daily life, a healthcare professional can help you develop new coping skills.
