The Stressors of Stress on Your Body and Behavior

Daily Real Estate News - April 13, 2021 - 4:20pm

(TNS)—Stress symptoms may be affecting your health, even though you might not realize it. You may think illness is to blame for that irritating headache, your frequent insomnia or your decreased productivity at work. But stress may actually be the cause.

Common Effects of Stress
Indeed, stress symptoms can affect your body, your thoughts and feelings, and your behavior. Being able to recognize common stress symptoms can help you manage them. Stress that’s left unchecked can contribute to many health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

On your body: Headache, muscle tension or pain, chest pain, fatigue, stomach upset, sleep problems

On your mood: Anxiety, restlessness, lack of motivation or focus, feeling overwhelmed, irritability or anger, sadness or depression

On your behavior: Overeating or undereating, angry outbursts, drug or alcohol misuse, tobacco use, social withdrawal, exercising less often

Act to Manage Stress
If you have stress symptoms, taking steps to manage your stress can have many health benefits. Explore stress management strategies, such as:

– Getting regular physical activity
Practicing relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing, meditation, yoga, tai chi or massage
– Keeping a sense of humor
– Spending time with family and friends
– Setting aside time for hobbies, such as reading a book or listening to music

Aim to find active ways to manage your stress. Inactive ways to manage stress—such as watching television, surfing the internet or playing video games—may seem relaxing, but they may increase your stress over the long term.

And be sure to get plenty of sleep and eat a healthy, balanced diet. Avoid tobacco use, excess caffeine and alcohol, and the use of illegal substances.

When to Seek Help
If you’re not sure if stress is the cause or if you’ve taken steps to control your stress but your symptoms continue, see your doctor. Your healthcare provider may want to check for other potential causes. Or consider seeing a professional counselor or therapist, who can help you identify sources of your stress and learn new coping tools.

Also, get emergency help immediately if you have chest pain, especially if you also have shortness of breath, jaw or back pain, pain radiating into your shoulder and arm, sweating, dizziness or nausea. These may be warning signs of a heart attack and not simply stress symptoms.

Real Estate Q&A: What Can I Do About Condo Rules That Don’t Allow Pickup Trucks?

Daily Real Estate News - April 12, 2021 - 4:32pm

(TNS)—Q: Our condo does not allow us to own pickup trucks or park them on the premises. Visitors can park them in guest parking during the day but must find off-site parking overnight. This rule is making it hard for friends and relatives to visit me. Is there something I can do? — Rick

A: When you purchased your apartment, you agreed to live by your new communities’ rules and restrictions.

Many people live in condominiums because they want to live in a community with a particular lifestyle and look and enjoy shared amenities. While there is no law restricting pickups from condominiums, your condo association can write its own rules at the direction of its residents.

And because you agreed to follow the rules when you bought into the community, you need to follow these rules.

Carefully read your community’s documents, so you know what the rules are. I find that what people think their documents say and what they actually say is often different.
I have seen many associations attempting to enforce regulations that do not exist because “that is the way we have always done it.”

Because the community members write these types of rules, enough residents wanting to change the policy can do so. Speak to your neighbors and see if there is any consensus about changing the restrictions. If so, approach your board as a group and let them know your wishes.

Nothing is stopping you from “voting with your feet” and moving to a neighborhood that syncs better with your lifestyle.

However, every community has its pluses and minuses, so consider your entire situation and not just focus on a single inconvenience if everything else is great.
