Body related symptoms and coping tips

From the materials in this website you already have learnt that psychosocial problems may have four types of effects on people: body related, mind related, behavioral and relationship related.

When people think of psychosocial problems, they often assume that symptoms and signs only appear in our mind, but these effects can appear in our body as well. For example, A feeling of heaviness, headache, a feeling of heavy and stiff-body, numbness, immobility of arms and legs, increased heartbeat, fast breathing, difficulty breathing, nausea, always feeling tired even after good rest, and general weakness can all signal psychosocial problems.

Here is what you can try to feel better:

  • Make sure you have a regular daily routine - eat at regular times and get a good night's sleep.
  • Be physically active! Do sports or any other physical exercise.
  • Try to relax by taking walks, doing yoga or meditating regularly.
  • Try various tips and tools on our website, including the audio-visual materials on mindfulness, deep breathing, grounding and other.

If these coping methods do not help you and your daily life becomes increasingly difficult, please seek professional help from a psychosocial counselor, psychologist or psychiatrist.
