Stress is all around us – but it is how we deal with it that matters. Life has ups and downs, but we must learn to overcome these troubles. We must learn to pick ourselves up after we fall and say, “It’s just a little dust,” and wipe ourselves off. Learning to handle the burdens that life brings your way is a big step to taking control of your life.
Stress dealt the wrong way
While these stresses happen, many of us seek to take back the control in our lives in the wrong way. One way that is extremely unhealthy could be through an eating disorder. Advisor to the National Eating Disorder Association, Claire Mysko, believes that the eating disorder will not help the stress levels in anyway and will actually make them worse. She told the Huffington Post, “People who struggle with eating disorder are often highly prone to stress anyway. But the actual behavior and the disorder itself can really intensify those feelings.”
