Usually, this means that they must swallow a lot of the stress they are struggling with. They don’t know what to do with it, and many times, they start to feel defeated. This defeat leads them to feeling depressed. The depression then leads to not taking care of themselves, and then that can lead to medical problems.
As you can see, the downward spiral can happen very quickly, and all because they aren’t talking about what is going on inside of their minds.
When our minds are stressed, it can wreak havoc on your body. It’s so important to your health and well-being to be able to reduce that stress in your life.
Our minds are a powerful thing. It has a purpose for everything. It makes your body function. When you don’t care for your mind, it starts to fail, and then your body begins to fail.
So how do you care for your mind?
Venting – talking about your thoughts and feelings – is the best way to care for your mind. You probably don’t believe that, but if you’ve ever noticed, after you talk to someone about how you’re feeling, don’t you usually feel better? The situation may not have changed, but for some reason, you just don’t feel as tense about it. Almost as if you took the edge off of it.
This may seem like it’s just a small advantage to venting, but the results it has on your body are great. When you reduce the stress you’re feeling, your body responds by lowering your blood pressure and heart rate. Your body just calms down. It’s really good for you because then your body doesn’t have to work so hard and can fend off diseases, illnesses, and medical conditions.
