The Boulevard Senior Living – Wentzville Explores Stress and Anxiety Management

Category: Senior Living

Author: Stacy Brassel, 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 Boulevard Senior Living – Wentzville 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.

Stress and anxiety cause me to feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and like there is no end in sight. The triggers for me are when I have a lot to do and I’m not able to complete it.

The symptoms stress and anxiety can cause include fatigue, weight loss or weight gain, heart burn, insomnia, shortness of breath, or panic attacks. Some techniques that can be used to decrease symptoms of stress and anxiety include going for a walk, talking with someone, exercising, meditation, or changing jobs.

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.
