Overflowing Anxiety and Stress are the Causes
According to Ph.D. Licensed Clinical Psychologist Corey Gonzales says this year of increased violence and aggression might stem.
“Each one of us, all of us are really capable of being destructive,” Gonzales said. “Moreover, our backs are really up against the wall. There is too much stress. People feel insecure. They feel threatened. We are obsessive. Also is alcohol or drugs which are involved.”
There should be an awareness of their mental state and also know when they should take a step back. This is what Gonzales said. Moreover, he even said slowing your breathing down can, in fact, eliminate the effects of adrenaline.
“Therefore, it is really important if somebody does want some space from you, it seems your best bet is to listen to them. Then allow them that space,” Gonzales said. “also, when you allow that space it does help you get that adrenaline of our of your body. Thus it can help you get a perspective to get back to your rational self.”
