Nervous breakdowns occur after long periods of stress that has not been addressed properly. While the term “nervous breakdown” may have come from how people perceive the condition and not a medical dictionary, it is serious nonetheless.
Nervous Breakdown Symptoms
The symptoms of a nervous breakdown could include difficulty in breathing, tightness of the chest, mental fogginess, memory loss, headaches, anxiety, over tiredness, mood swings, crying for no reason and depression, just to name a few. According to the Native Remedies website, other symptoms of a nervous breakdown could include: hearing voices, violent anger issues, not eating, over-eating, thoughts of dying, blurred vision, dependence on alcohol or drugs and several more.
When we live in a daily life full of routines, we often find it hard to push anxiety out. Getting away to a new place can help alleviate some of the day-to-day stress many people feel. Stepping out of a daily routine could give you the push in the right direction you’ve been looking for to help get you back on track.
Another great way to help reduce stress is to visit a spa. Yes, there are many spas that you could visit where you live, but a quick hour or so at the spa may not be enough to set you on the track you need to be on to reduce stress. Planning a trip for several days or even a week to a different state where you don’t know anyone or will not come in contact with anything that sets off your anxiety could be of benefit.
