During the war, the number of Ukrainians who experience stress increased. Almost all of us experience anxiety. We are scared, we constantly read the news and cannot predict what will happen tomorrow. How to proceed in such a case? Of course, psychological counseling will not hurt. It is necessary in order to understand the causes of stress, as well as to determine the exit points from this state.

Why is stress levels rising?

It seems that anxiety has already become commonplace for many Ukrainians. And indeed it is. But, if nothing is done about it, we can get stuck in stress and fall into a deep depression.

It must be understood that stress is intensified due to the flow of information, active hostilities, our loved ones who are at war. Also, we do not feel control over life, and yet we cannot do the things that we are used to.

These factors have a strong influence on our psychological and physical condition. They also increase the production of the hormone cortisol. Of course, it cannot be assumed that it negatively affects the body. In moderation, it is useful and even necessary. But if its excess is felt, we feel anxiety, apathy, depression.
