Stress affects everyone differently. Some people cope with stress with a combination of physical activity – running, yoga, etc. – and some go completely “out of it,” becoming couch potatoes. Either way, stress brings up all kinds of issues in our lives, not just the physical. It can be hard to differentiate between the two as they may be one and the same.
In our latest article, we talked about stress as a “stress vector.” With stress, it’s like a ballpoint pen that can be used to draw all different kinds of lines. One stress vector is when we start to lose touch with our physical surroundings and lose our sense of home. We all know the feeling of suddenly being in unfamiliar places, and then feeling like we can’t remember the name of the street the other person lives on.
Stress can be a mental or physical issue, and when it’s a mental issue the physical will always be there. In our last article, we talked about the stress vector in terms of when we’re stressed, but we didn’t talk about stress in terms of when we were stressed, or if we were stressed at all. Instead, we talked about stress as a general feeling. The stress vector is a feeling of having the body in a state of discomfort and anxiety.
The stress vector is a feeling that can be physical, psychological, or both. It can be a physical sensation of being ill or being extremely uncomfortable. It can be a general sense of feeling stressed, anxious, or anxious. It can also be a feeling of being overwhelmed by the amount of stress you are under. In the same way the stress vector is a physical feeling, it is also a mental feeling.
The stress vector is an emotional feeling that is either a fear of death or a fear of the unknown. It is a fear that can manifest itself in different ways. Death or the unknown are generally considered to be the worst feelings. The stress vector is a fear of death that is associated with depression, anxiety, and even a specific kind of anxiety disorder called social anxiety disorder. A social anxiety disorder is the fear of social interactions, and is often experienced in the form of an avoidance of social situations.
In the stress vector, it’s the fear of death that is usually considered to be the worst. This is because it is perceived as the ultimate, ultimate “insecurities” and a feeling that can’t be satisfied with the everyday stuff in life. In reality though, most of us do not view death as the end of life and the beginning of death.
It’s not hard to see how a stress vector can form. We live in a world full of fear and stressors that drive us to avoid certain things. Stress can be the one thing we can’t avoid, and we can’t avoid it. We can’t escape it.
I was recently reminded of how stressful it can be to live with. Recently I found myself in my favorite restaurant with a friend that was having trouble with his anxiety levels. We ate dinner, and suddenly he said, “I can’t finish my food! I’m in this state where I cant eat!” and I was stunned. I asked him, “Well, what are you stressed out about?” and he said, “My anxiety.
Anxiety is anxiety, right? Stress is stress, but anxiety is a different, more negative, condition. Anxiety is a fear that something is wrong, so you avoid what you don’t want and expect something bad to happen, but stress is a more complex condition, and it’s more often associated with physical issues such as heart disease or stroke.
The stress vector is probably one of the most misunderstood parts of anxiety. When we’re stressed, our brains do a complex thing called “reactive inhibition.” This means that when we feel a negative emotion, our brains stop and think, “What else could we do with it?” and then come up with all kinds of ways to respond to it.
