Everyday we are faced with stressors that affect both mental and physical wellbeing. Stress suppresses the immune system resulting the appearance of physical symptoms such as headache, trouble sleeping (insomnia), digestive disorders, chest pain, palpitations, respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath, gastrointestinal disorders, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), hypertension and others. Also, the stress significantly affects our mental health, causing depression, panic attacks, phobias, eating disorders, etc.
To deal with these physical symptoms is imperative to learn to manage stress to improve the quality of life. This can be achieved with self-awareness through biofeedback and psychotherapy as well as with various relaxation techniques.
