Vitalia Senior Residences at Stow Explores Stress and Anxiety Management

Category: Senior Living

Author: Leonna Kidd, 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 Vitalia Senior Residences at Stow 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.

For me, stress and anxiety feel like irritability, tiredness, and tightness in my neck. Several different things can trigger my stress and anxiety. They include bereavement, conflict, and not getting enough sleep.

The techniques I use to decrease symptoms of stress and anxiety are self-care massage, manicure and pedicure, facial, bubble bath, and sometimes just relaxing.

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.
