Effects of Stress on Your Body, Your Mind and Your Life

When experiencing any stressful activity that may trigger anxiety or panic attacks, take a deep breathe and stop yourself from reaching for that anti –stress drug.

Why? Often people don’t see it before it is too late. One temporary cure with a pill for instance could cause more problems.

For stressful events or even for every anxiety or panic attack, you could turn out to be a pill popper. It can be habitual and therefore addictive.

Stress or anxiety attacks happen to everyone. These can be caused by emotional problems. When it happens, some experience cold sweats, a dry throat and in the extreme, palpitations. 

Here are a few steps to follow to manage stress or to be used as a natural treatment for panic attacks:

  • The first step is to know what caused the panic attack, deal with it in a natural way.
     
  • The next step is to review your daily diet. If people say you are what you eat and give you a funny look, think about it.  It is time to switch to a healthier diet.
     
  • Avoid the caffeine. Taking more coffee breaks and eating doughnuts four times a week for example can cause health problems in the long run.
     
  • Consult a dietician. If changing your diet on your own proves difficult, consult a dietician. The benefits to your body are the best trade off to the costs.
     
  • One other important aspect to develop, if you haven’t done it yet, is to exercise. Brisk walking, cycling around the neighborhood, walking the dog, playing basketball or baseball, or jumping the tarpaulin with the kids are only some of the activities you can indulge in to avoid thinking of your problems, imagined or not. Exercise promotes better circulation in the body and with proper diet you may no longer experience panic attacks.
     
  • Finally, indulge yourself. Relax and listen to music or watch a good film to or read a book. Anything that should stimulate the mind would eventually manifest in how you’ll feel: younger and better looking.

Believe it or not, these simple steps can do wonders to changing your stressful life. The bonus is they can be used as natural treatment for panic attacks.
