Unwell And Stomach Ache When You Hear Bad News
how do I get rid of trauma? Every time I hear bad news a feeling suddenly becomes unwell and makes a stomach ache. Especially with the plague like now often makes me anxious and cause unpleasant effects on my body.
Thank you for the question.
Every person has a different reaction to something that happens in his life, and that reaction is a form of the body's defense against external stimuli. Moreover, with the outbreak of covid-19 disease, there are a lot of news that makes anxiety and worry. As already explained, the unpleasant stimulation from the outside will cause a reaction that is actually a defense response of a person's body, or what is called a system of light or flight, like what you feel, namely anxiety, discomfort, and heartburn.
This is basically a natural and natural thing, as long as it is not excessive and does not interfere with daily activities, in which case you should seek professional help. Facing bad news and making anxiety do make you feel uncomfortable, and there are several ways you can do to reduce anxiety and discomfort, such as:
Take a break from the news about the plague. It's important to keep up-to-date with the latest conditions, but you need to remember that your mental health is also important, so you can take a break from reading the news, watching TV, or watching social media for some time until you are 'ready' again.
Focus on more important things, such as activities that must be carried out daily, maintaining a healthy body.
Focus on positive things, such as things that make you grateful every day.
Calm yourself by doing relaxation techniques, such as taking deep breaths and throwing them out slowly.
Tell your complaints to the people closest to you that you trust.
Hopefully this information can be useful, and hopefully you are always healthy.
