Imagine you're on your way to meet friends in a bar. You're late and stuck behind a van in slow motion, when the whole street lurches into darkness. Suddenly the man crossing the street in front of you likes a potential burglar. The cars around you seem to be hemming you in. Everyone and everything seems dangerous.

But if a high level of stress to your mind continues over a long period, paralyzing feeling of being overwhelmed can set in. Have you ever been in a situation where, under mind stress, can not remember the name of one of their own family members? Maybe you are stuck in a depression, or perhaps you have achieved something great, but the next morning you do not want to get out of bed because you're so low.
These are indications that you are caught in a mind storm stress - a place full of fear and confusion when you're no longer thinking rationally. If this sounds familiar, read on to understand better what is happening to you - and to become acquainted with it.
On a physical level - which is where the symptoms are easier to detect and treat – memory stress can appear as migraines, headaches, muscle aches and pains, skin breakouts (acne, psoriasis, eczema) and stomach problems (including bowel syndrome irritable and constipation). Emotionally, we become more prone to outbursts of temper, mood swings and negativity. Mentally, we feel less able to cope. Our vision becomes distorted and it becomes very difficult to keep our perspective. Mentally highly stressed people become reactive. This means that they react more to everything in their lives, the lack of milk in the fridge for the geyser burst. We become so overwhelmed that literally pull us along.

The suggestions below are a good start. Do not knock them sound obvious - at least not until you actually tried them.
Stress Busters….Gain Perspective -- Understand that there are certain things in your life that you have control over you and others not. If, for example, you are concerned about the political situation, I vote. If you are concerned about crime, join or start a monitoring program to the neighborhood. Be proactive about the things that you can influence and let go of who you can not.
Breathe-- At work, if you find your mind getting stressed or anxious, go somewhere quiet and concentrate on your breathing. Imagine your breath is like waves breaking on the beach. Keep a regular rhythm. Imagine you are breathing all the way from your toes when you breathe, and all the way back again as you breathe out.
Eating Well--- Do not hand your power over food and drinks. This fat burger will not release your stress of you mind. Instead ask, 'What will make this drink or food for my body in the long term? "Cut the sugar. Sugar gives you a temporary lift followed by a downer. If you're craving something sweet, try eating fruit or a handful of nuts. Drink plenty of water. The stress mind tends to dehydrate the body. Keeping your body hydrated will reduce stress symptoms such as fatigue and headaches.
Exercise More-- One of the most effective ways of dealing with stress mind is exercise. Try doing some kind of exercise at least three times a week for 30 to 60 minutes.
Develop a positive internal dialogue-- This is a powerful way to help us when we are feeling our mind stressed. We tend to feel worried about things that we have no control over (the future, other people) and more than we fear never happens. Staying at this time, if you start to stress about tomorrow, remember that you can live today - tomorrow does not exist.
