Is there something Wrong with You?
Lots of people worry excessively when they have problems coping with life...or wondering iff they're really a serious mental case.
Some worry might lead a reasonable person to look into it---yet not get too preoccupied with self-diagnosis-- for that too can cause too much worry. You or those close to you may have no real issues, or just a few, or some problems that need some professional help to solve. Lets take a quick look for starters.

The long Vegus nerve in your body is said to affect stress and anxiety. The Vegus (pronounced "VAY-gus, like Las Vegas) " is known to reduce stress when stimulated. It CHILLS YOU OUT --literally cools you down when you're just too uptight. You can take steps to stimulate it into soothing you. Take a cold shower, go outside where it's cool for a little while. And more. Read more on this from Psychology Spot.
The Vegus nerve, when activated, shuts down anxiety levels and calms people. Psychologists hope you'll develop Vegul tone in your life using several methods.
1. Cold therapy to 'chill' oneself. Use ice packs to stop panic attacks. Shower in cool water for a minute to literally chill out your body. Or even go outside in the cold to shut down anxiety.
2. Vibration of the vocal cords are found to stimulate the nerve -- best done by humming, chanting or singing in lower tones. Meditation or lullabies are in the lower sound range and when you feel anxiety and stress, you'll find it helpful to sing or hum to yourself to help you relax.
STRESS MANAGEMENT EXAMPLE: Could it be that kidnapped black slaves learned how to use the Vegus nerve to calm their fears during their weeks on 1700s sailing ships?
