In the previous article we have developed about the reason for the frequency, at present, of symptoms of anxiety and stress.

Here we will try to score in general, how to recognize these symptoms, and what decisions should be made in these cases.

Many times, detecting the signals that our body sends us is not an easy task. In the course of everyday life and the speed of activities, many symptoms are initially overlooked.


At the slightest physical pain, some medication is resorted to, and this often becomes a daily habit.

But, as we have already mentioned, any process initiated in the unconscious plane continues its course, regardless of whether we want to avoid it.

This means that this accumulated tension or energy that is wanting to come out, will continue to manifest itself, with increasing force, until the necessary actions are carried out.

The symptoms of anxiety and stress are different, but since they vary from subject to subject, in many cases the same symptom can be attributed to both issues.

The anxiety is associated with a amount of energy that exceeds a limit, and can manifest itself both at the level of ideas: very fast flow of thoughts that generates confusion and anguish, as in the bodily plane: sensationsphysiological such as shortness of breath, chest tightness, sweating, heat, or chills, body tremor, dizziness, even fainting, nausea, and upset stomach.

These symptoms manifest themselves in an anxiety crisis, but they manifest more subtly initially, being able to detect that we are anxious, before the picture becomes even more complicated.

stress is initially manifested by tiredness, physical and mental exhaustion, headaches, muscle aches, irritability, confusion, tension, excessive fear and self-criticism, symptoms of anxiety and depression can appear here, as an indication of being under stress, among others.

Stress, prolonged, can cause a large number of psychosomatic illnesses, among which are Psoriasis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome as recurring examples, although the list is extensive and more and more associations are being found between stress and all kinds of diseases.

That's why it's important to work on listening for the first signs that something is wrong, that we need to stop or do something about it.

The first recommendation is of course to consult with professionals: doctor and psychologist, in order to work on the initial symptoms.

Secondly, it is very important to be able to communicate what is happening to us with people close to us. The very attitude of expressing that one is not well helps the environmentreduce the demands and can help reduce that tension.

Furthermore, the very fact of communicating it, without intending to continue as if nothing had happened, deepens awareness of the process we are experiencing.

On the other hand, and although it may seem like a big cliché, it is recommended to reduce the time spent on work and study, allowing us to carry out relaxation activities.

In this, any artistic expression is very important, it helps to express and communicate what is manifesting automatically. It helps us to symbolize, through resources other than speech, and allows that amount of accumulated energy to sublimate.

Physical activityalso helps, as long as it's done in a controlled manner and not excessively.

Activities such as Yoga and Meditation, help considerably to reduce tension and the flow of thoughts. It allows us to establish a pause in the routine of activities that often becomes chaotic.

It is very important to detect these signs in time, to prevent the problem from getting worse and, furthermore, because it helps us to recognize the moment we are going through, very valuable introspection tool that will serve us later for the rest of our lives.
