Diagnosing and Treating Stress Online
Stress is very common and nothing to be too concerned about — it's a natural reaction to the demands and challenges of everyday life. Even though stress is perfectly normal, it's good to recognize the symptoms so you can act quickly and find relief.
Causes of Stress
While stress is very common, the causes can differ from person to person. Complicated world events and the spread of COVID-19 have been causing stress. Some people might find their jobs stressful, others may feel burdened by having too much on their plate. Whatever the cause, there are specific ways you can reduce your stress so it is manageable and does not interfere with your overall health. One smart way to manage stress is by talking to a health professional.
Diagnosis and Treatment
Through the Amwell app, you can speak with a therapist from home. Your online therapist will ask a series of questions about your career, lifestyle, extracurricular activities, interests, and more. This will help him or her identify the cause of the stress and then together you can find ways to manage it. Some of those methods may include:
- Healthy diet
- Taking breaks from intense concentration
- Ongoing therapy visits
Avoid the potential stress of driving to the appointment and have a visit online.
