All About Stress & Anxiety

 

There’s no doubt that stress and motherhood go hand in hand. From pregnancy to sending them off to college, and even caring for your parents, the everyday anxieties seem to never really go away. Juggling being a mom is a challenge, no matter how you slice it. 

In this blog, we’ll break down our top stress & anxiety tips for you and your family we’ve learned from a variety of wellness experts, including Anxiety Coach Amanda Huggins.  

 

You’re Not Alone

According to a recent study from the American Psychological Association, 49 percent of women surveyed reported they face stress frequently. While stress can feel isolating, it’s very common, particularly among women. In fact, women are twice as likely to be diagnosed with anxiety disorders than men are.

 

Managing On Your Own Vs. Seeking Medical Attention

With everything moms have to worry about, stress is an inevitable part of life. Unfortunately, chronic, unmanaged stress does more harm than good, often leading to extreme feelings of anxiety.

A few common symptoms of stress that can impact your daily life include:

  • Aches and pains, including chest pain, headaches, stomach pain and muscle tension
  • Stomach and digestive issues
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Low energy and higher levels of fatigue
  • Frequent colds and other infections

Moms are always busy, and it’s important to focus on your stress to make sure you’re helping your family live their best lives. Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to manage your stress on your own, such as regular exercise, breathing techniques and meditation, maintaining a healthy diet and taking frequent breaks. 

If you feel your stress is getting too difficult to manage or your symptoms worsen, we recommend speaking with your doctor or therapist for more solutions. Here are a few mental wellness resources we recommend checking out:
