When someone says that they’re feeling stressed or anxious about either going to a meeting or doing a new thing that is common, but sadly one in three women and one in 5 men all deal with anxiety daily.
The anxiety itself is when either an environmental, medical, or just your brain makes you believe the worst will happen out of a new or ongoing problem/experience.
Stress is like anxiety but, instead, it triggers out “Fight or flight” response, so in saying that our adrenaline and cortisol are released and that is how we prepare us up against a scary or worrying situation.
If you know or you think someone you know may experience stress or anxiety the key points you should look for is: Irrational fears increased, Tensed, increased fright, self-conscious, Panic attacks, flashbacks with traumatic times, or strive for perfection.
We can all try to control how we deal with anxiety, some professional advice is to, eat a well-balanced diet, limit alcohol and caffeine intake, exercise daily, count to 10, 20 if necessary, learn what it is that triggers your anxiety, and talk to someone.
Stress is what we all endure in our lifetime, there are good and bad, like most things. The good is we are more alert to what is happening around you and our energy levels rise once we find ourselves and a precision that we aren’t comfortable with.
Stress can also have its own flaws such as it can last for long periods of times and sometimes it overwhelms our ability to cope, it can also have negative effects on our health, well-being, relationships, work and our general enjoyment of life.
We can all improve our knowledge about stress and can also increase our resources to become more resilient.
Recognizing signs and symptoms of stress help you figure out ways of coping with stress and hopefully save you from adopting bad habits such as; Smoking, or unhealthy eating.
The ways to keep stress to a minimum is exactly same as dealing with anxiety, so eat healthily, learn what it is that makes you feel stress and do things to reduce or make your stress go away.

Linda is the owner and Co-founder of Cranbourne Family Chiropractic and Wellness Centre with her husband, Andrew. I believe the Body and Mind are one system which is dynamic and complex. You cannot have a thought without it being reflected in the body. It is this link between the two that ensures our mental and emotional wellbeing impacts our physical well being and visa versa in both positive and negative ways. I also believe there are no ‘broken’ people.
After graduating from a Bachelor of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine – Acupuncture and completing a Grad Dip in Education (Health) Linda went into practice as an Acupuncturist for several years. Linda continued to search for tools that embraced the wisdom of TCM but also incorporated the best of the leading edge research into the brain and the way it works; simple and powerful tools for herself and her clients.
After discovering EFT / Tapping in 2004 and completing studies both from overseas and within Australia Linda now uses these techniques extensively in practice. These techniques can create dramatic shifts in people and the way they interact with themselves and others. Linda often hears from her clients that nothing has gotten to the root of their problems faster and they didn’t have to suffer in the process!
Linda is also a fully trained Hypnotherapist incorporating this into her sessions.
