Vitalia Active Adult Community – Montrose Explores Stress and Anxiety Management

Category: Senior Living

Author: Heather Kiba, 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 Active Adult Community – Montrose 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 an uneasy feeling of not being settled, with unhappy feelings. It causes many emotions and can sometimes make me feel out of balance. The triggers of my stress and anxiety are when staff do not follow through with work expectations, staffing issues, and upset families, residents, and employees, plus my personal issues going on outside of work.

Stress and anxiety can cause symptoms including a racing heart, tightness in the chest, hives, irritability, and crying easily. Exercising daily, eating right, and not using drugs or alcohol helps decrease anxiety. Also, talking to people about your stressors can help you feel better.

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.
