All of our feelings have physical consequences, both positive and negative. Any imbalance in the psyche is reflected in the work of the whole organism, although many do not believe in this. And yet, the candidate of medical sciences Andrei Kondrakhin warned that if a person stresses a lot and restrains all the negativity inside himself, then sooner or later he may face a heart attack. But that’s not all.
“There is a concept of a psychosomatic state, when an emotion does not appear on the face, as an emotional coloring, with the help of facial muscles, but is driven inside. Incorrectly implemented stress a person experiences inside himself. There is an overload of the central nervous system. There are insomnia, all kinds of eating disorders, disturbances in the rhythm of the day and rest. For example, at night a person walks, during the day he sleeps, ”said the specialist.
From the suppression of negative emotions over time, there may be duodenal or stomach ulcer, chronic stress or chronic fatigue syndrome. It may also developcoronary artery disease. What to say about cerebrovascular accident, muscle pain or memory impairment.
By the way, some states are directly related to specific negative emotions. If stress is not released for a long time, then a person will develop cardiovascular pathologies, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, and pancreas. Restraining anger can lead to the fact that anger will then play out on the internal organs.
There are several ways that help to splash out the negative. For example, in a stressful situation, you can do a few squats, go for a run, ride a bike, or just go for a walk. Communication also helps a lot. So if you have a person you trust, feel free to speak out at least to him.
But if a person understands that he cannot cope with stress on his own, he needs to contact a specialist. Do not underestimate psychotherapy. After all, a competent psychotherapist will help to understand what exactly a person has for stress, where it comes from and how to direct it in a useful direction.
“Stress plays a positive role for the body. It forces you to move somewhere or, conversely, not to do something. But the doctor will help to work out fears and phobias, ”concluded Kondrakhin.
Earlier, Vladimir Shlyapnikov, Candidate of Psychological Sciences, Associate Professor of the Department of Personality Psychology and Differential Psychology at the Moscow Institute of Psychoanalysis, warned that unwillingness to remove the Christmas tree could indicate psychological problems.
