How to manage and recover from stress.






Hello sweeties, How are you doing? How has the year been so far? Good? Great? However it has been, I urge you to remain strong, happy and grateful because God is still in charge, despite all that is going on, God is in charge and in control. Relax.....

I know to some people, the word "relax" is far fetched, its not looking like it can happen any time soon, because there is so much stress in the country, in every corner there is stress. Take note, I'm not talking normal stress we face from time to time, I'm talking about LONG TERM STRESS, the one that has been left untreated, busy marinating in our lives? Yes, that one! Its very harmful. That kind of stress is so bad that it's even a problem to fall asleep at night. Did you know that insomnia is a symptom of long term stress? I feel bad when I hear people talk so lightly about insomnia, without knowing the damage it can do.

SYPTOMS OF STRESS:

  1. Insomnia
  2. Mental health issues
  3. Anger
  4. Anxiety
  5. Lack of appetite for food
  6. Rapid weight loss
  7. Depression
  8. Weight gain
  9. Low energy
  10. Headaches
  11. Irritability
  12. Constipation
  13. Eye twitching
  14. Acne
  15. Loss of sexual desire
These are just a few, the list goes on and on. Thats to tell you the level of damage that can be done to the body if its not taken care of.

There are actually different stages to this, and you almost would not recognise when it graduates to a different stage, so I will just tell you that if you notice any of the syptoms above and you are worried about it, quickly see a doctor, especially when you find it difficult sleeping at night. Many nights of sleepnessness could result to serious issues, please guys dont take insomnia for granted! 

HOW TO MANAGE STRESS
  1. See a Doctor.
  2. Try and take some time off to sleep, even if its during the day, an hour or 2 will do a lot of good.
  3. Eat! Just eat something.
  4. Drink lots and lots of water.
  5. Stay away from toxic people and nicely ask them to give you some space.
  6. Speak to someone you trust about how you have been feeling, because it might all seem strange to you.
  7. Listen to people who love you, when they tell you something is wrong, allow them to help you, because you might not know it.
  8. Stay close to God at this time, His perfect love and mercy will strengthen you.
As soon as you start receiving treatment or help, it may take a few days, but you will surely get better, by the special grace of God. 

Stay positive, and please share with family and friends. 
God bless.
Cheliz.
