all the signs of stress and burnout

Stress is the way your body reacts to demands.

I want you to to take a few minutes to think of what’s causing stress in your life. Some of the more common signs of stress are things like schedule changes, deadlines at work, lack of sleep and certain relationships with friends and family members. Understand right here as you keep reading this post that unless you deal with these signs of stress, you are headed down a road that leads to complete burnout and it’s not a pretty one once you get there I can tell you that.

Introducing To You, The ‘Glands Of Stress’

Your adrenal glands are basically your best friends that reside in your body that we take for granted. Their job is to enable your body to deal with stress from each and every possible source out there. Everything from your daily energy, your resiliancy and pretty much your quality of life all depends on how weel they function each and everyday.

When Your Adrenal Glands Aren’t Functioning Correctly Lethargy (lack of energy) Will Strike You Like Lightning!

You may wake up one day and think what the heck? I feel like complete crap! If this is the case answer these 6 questions right now in the signs os stress and burnoutyour head, and lets’s find out whether or not the signs of stress in your life have led you to burnout:

1) Has your ability to handle, and deal with stress as well as pressure decreased in the last few weeks?

2) Has your thinking become confused when you are hurried or under pressure lately (foggy, can’t think clear)?

3) In the last few weeks does EVERYTHING seem like a chore, even things that used to comes easy for you to do?

4) If you don’t get to sleep by 11pm do you get a second wind of energy that often lasts until 1 or 2 am?

5) Do you get colds and coughs that seem to stick around for weeks at a time?

6) Is your sex drive noticably less then it used to be?

So How Did You Do?

If you answered yes to 3 or more of those questions them read on, if you answered no to most of those questions… then read on anyway.

As I sit here and dive into this somewhat large piece of dark chocolate in my hands, I have to admit i’ve been there and know exactly where you’re coming from. Remember that quick scan of of your life at the beginning of the article, the one where you identified the signs of stress and anxiety in your life? Well it’s time to go a step farther now so we can create the ultimate…

Good, Bad and Extremely Ugly Chart!

good, bad and ugly for stress and burnout

Still love that movie… Just saying.

This is going to take anywhere from 5 to 5 hours of your time (depending on a number of things). So grab a piece of paper and make 3 columns. One on the top left that reads GOOD, one in the middle that reads BAD, and the last one on the top right that says UGLY. Now look to see what is working, and what are the signs of stress that are draining you and leading you and your ‘glands of stress’ towards what seems like inevitable burnout. In the good section you could write things like: Writing in the evenings, bike rides in the morning with Sara, the types of things that will contribute to your overall well being and help your adrenal glands out. In the bad column write down the things that are detracting from your life such as being a couch potato and watching too much tv, being a perfectionist or being around Jane too much. In the ugly column write down all the things that are in the short term help list that are the energy robbers in your life such as alcohol, coffee, soft drinks, anything that you feel you need to rely on to get you going.

Start The Cycle Of Stop-Breathe-Reflect-Choose To Deal With The Signs Of Stress Now

My personal favourite part of this cycle is the reflect part, it’s powerful stuff if you do it right.

Make this weekend the weekend that you begin moving away from stress and burnout. Start the process of completely eliminating the tension and tightness that you hold in your mind and body. Know that you always have a choice in the matter. You have a choice whether to look at something as a problem or as a challenge, you have the choice of whether to think in more positive ways or negative ways during the day.

Remember that It’s the choices you make today that will make your life more enjoyable, and less demanding for the future.

end the anxiety program

Hi there my name is Cris Hutchins, I wanted to share some insight into what i’ve learned through The Anxiety Guy over this past week doing the end the anxiety program.

What Is Anxiety?

Many ordinary people suffer from anxiety, but have you given any thought about what anxiety actually is? Anxiety is a term used for different disorders that can turn into physical symptoms that are caused by being tense, nervous or worried. Anxiety is usually considered an unpleasant feeling and it’s hard to deal with it. It has some similarities to fear, but it’s still a completely different feeling. The feeling is usually accompanied by muscular tension, restlessness, fatigue, and problems in concentration. Although anxiety can be appropriate sometimes, if it’s too much and stays for too long then you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety can be easily recognized by people. Usually the feeling of anxiety bring a worried facial expression to the one that suffers from it. Other nervous habits such as biting your nails, or going back and forth across a room can be an indicator for anxiety. Getting a panic attack is also common for people with anxiety disorders. All these problems can lead to a more unhealthy life and this is why anxiety has to be treated, otherwise it’s bad for you and the people around you.

What Are The Real Affects Of Anxiety On You?

Unfortunately, anxiety can have a profound impact upon a sufferer’s life and relationships. To cope with the symptoms of anxiety and panic, people may start smoking or drinking too much, or misusing drugs. They can also start to avoid certain situations and only maintain those relationships that support their negative views on life.

An individual with anxiety problems may find it difficult to hold down a job, develop or maintain good relationships, or enjoying leisure time. Sleep problems can also make anxiety symptoms worse and reduce a sufferer’s ability to cope.

For some, anxiety can be so overwhelming that it takes over their  lives. They may, therefore, experience severe or frequent panic attacks, for no apparent reason, or have a persistent underlying sense of anxiety. This can then trigger other anxiety disorders such as agoraphobia or OCD.

There are natural ways to reduce anxiety that are appropriate for certain types of anxiety problems.

For example, learning controlled breathing is particularly useful for controlling panic and gradually facing the situations and things that you fear (exposure) is particularly useful for phobias. Other anxiety solutions include:

Guided relaxation techniques – the symptoms can be controlled by breathing and relaxation techniques, and by

replacing distressing, negative thoughts with positive, peaceful ones.

Assertiveness training – for some, learning how to handle difficult situations and to stand up for themselves can make
them feel more confident and, therefore, more relaxed.

Complementary therapies – can help people to relax, sleep better, and deal with the symptoms of anxiety. Yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, massage, reflexology, homeopathy and hypnotherapy are methods that can be used.

Exercise – can help people cope with anxiety and feelings of tension, and improve sleep. It uses adrenalin and other
hormones, produced under stress, allowing muscles to relax, as well as raising levels of serotonin.

Good methods of exercising are walking and swimming as they allow individuals to be active at their own pace and choose whether to exercise alone or in company.

Healthy living – a healthy diet and plenty of sleep, as well as avoiding stimulants such as coffee and cigarettes.

Talking to someone who’s been in your shoes before – can help relieve feelings as others may have had similar experiences. I know in my own personal success story over debilitating anxiety, without a mentor who I reached out to when things looked dim for me… I might just still be the one looking for a solution to my anxiety, just as you are.

The interesting part about society today is we’re all searching for quick answers to our problems, and when that doesn’t work say in the form of anxiety related prescriptions, or certain techniques or therapy, we give it up and go back to our old ways of coping with anxiety.

Why?

Because that’s what we’re used to, that’s what we know. the unknown world of recovery from anxiety can be so foreign to someone that they may in fact fear the steps it may take to stop anxiety naturally. If this sounds like you, begin your road to recovery through the #1 online anxiety program today and end the coping and ‘getting by’ once and for all.
