Is it Stress or Anxiety? – How to Tell Them Apart & Train Them to Behave
Are stress and Anxiety the same thing?

Hey, my overthinking, stressed out friend!

As you soar through the high-flying world of corporate life, it’s not unusual to feel the occasional turbulence once in a while. But wait, are those jitters just stress, or the unwelcome guest called anxiety, sneaking into the executive suite of your mind? Fear not, my fabulous friend, because you’re about to embark on a wonderful journey to unravel the mysteries of stress and anxiety. And, of course, pave the way for a future as bright as a diamond-studded PowerPoint presentation!

The Sneaky Nemeses: Stress & Anxiety

Imagine yourself flying through the corporate skies for a moment. Stress is that pesky turbulence, that shakes up your flight but ultimately ebbs away just like a passing cloud. It’s the pressure-cooker feeling before that big presentation or the adrenaline rush when deadlines loom overhead. On the other hand, anxiety is the mischievous, smelly gremlin sitting next to you, whispering doubts in your ear, creating a cloud of worry that just won’t budge. While stress pops in for a quick visit, anxiety overstays its welcome, hogging your inner mental space like a nasty dose of the flu.

Symphony of Symptoms: Stress v Anxiety

Picture this: Your inbox is singing a symphony of urgent emails, and your to-do list is longer than the queue for free hot cakes at the coffee shop. That’s stress serenading you with palpitations, sweaty palms, and a racing mind. It’s the body’s way of saying, “Hey, let’s get this done – chop-chop!”. Now, anxiety? Ah, it’s a maestro of its own. Imagine a constant loop of catastrophic thoughts, the “what ifs” playing on repeat like an annoying Kylie pop song. Sleepless nights, restlessness, and that painful knot in your stomach. That’s anxiety orchestrating its grand performance. All in a bid to keep you safe, rooted deep into your comfort zone.
