Going through a breakup? Overloaded with homework? Just need a break from the craziness of life?
The heart and the brain have very different ideas when it comes to dealing with stress.
Overthinks every little stressful detail in an endless, torturous cycle.
Blames your stress on you.
Encourages you to do things like bang your head against the wall and lay on the floor, quietly sobbing while wallowing in self-pity.
Causes inexplicable attachment to people, places and things.
Pines away for things it can't have.
Easily distracted (momentarily) by things like ice cream, chocolate, and more chocolate.
