Women are multi-taskers, and our responsibilities can seem never ending. We have so many different roles, and sometimes juggling them all can feel like enormous pressure. We also experience stress from the pressure we put on ourselves.
While stress may seem harmless, it can have a detrimental impact on our psychological, emotional, and even physical state.
Emotions that may arise during stressful times can include:
Stress can also lead to the following physical symptoms:
- Fast heart rate
- Difficulty concentrating
- Appetite changes
Stress is a part of our daily lives, and self-care is essential to learn how to cope with stress in a more positive way. Therapy for stress management focuses on mindfulness exercises, identifying thought distortions that may be contributing to increased stress, and examining any unrealistic expectations that you may be placing on yourself. Radical acceptance and surrender are also emphasized, as it is important to learn how to let go of things that cannot be changed.
