Coping with an illness
In managing medical conditions there are several lifestyle factors that can impede recovery or cause an increase in symptoms. These factors include worry, anxiety, stress, tension, diet, exercise, sleep and lack of social support. Worrying or negative, repetitive thinking about possible adverse situations is one of the most destructive and harmful ways of thinking. People who worry a lot tend to experience high levels of anxiety and tension which adversely affect their physical health. This can add further complications when combined with a medical condition.
