Three factors cause #stress most of the time:

1) Novelty - When we deal with new, unfamiliar stuff like new place, new skill etc, we get stress. This is good because the minor stress causes us to stay alert sharpening our attention.
Next 2 are more relevant for a trader/investor
2) Uncertainty - An investor deals with uncertainty all the time. It's a multi variate field and meteors keep falling from outer space. It's uncertainty, more than the actual break out of bad news that's stressful most of the time.
3) Lack of control - Notice the stress you have when you are a pillion rider on a bike, or a parachute. Or, when you think you own a potential multi-bagger stock, and it keeps falling. Or, when you have to catch a flight and you're suck in a traffic

Goed mensen....ik ben boos.
Heel erg boos. Over een artikel uit het @dvhn_nl. En wat ik nooit via Twitter doe, doe ik nu wel....op twitter. 🤭🤔
Ja we kennen allemaal filmpjes, interviews enz van #studenten die maximaal lenen. Exotische vakanties houden en ook nog even 'gratis' een rijbewijs halen.
Maar zo zijn ze niet allemaal hoor,

Challenges #Entrepreneurs
Face & #stress in #startups making sense of recent events 1.Entrepeneurship is hard, fraught with high risk, never a straight line to success, every day pressures and many times bordering between total failure to huge potential success.... 1/n
..2/n 2.Emotional roller coaster that entrepreneur goes through can easily take its toll, as often within the same day, they go through huge swings of exhilaration and frustration. This needs strong mental ability to handle.
#startups #entrepreneur #Mentalhealth #stress.. 2/n
..3/n 3. It's very lonely at the top. With a need to project positive attitude and show strength to all the other stakeholders for the founder to do their job.There is no support or ecosystem that can help each other mutually.#startups

Our new paper in SPPC makes the case for a socio-psycho-bio model of health.…

This foregrounds the capacity for social groups—and the social contexts in which those groups are embedded— to structure psychology and, through this, biology and health.

The three elements of the SPB model are dynamic and interdependent. This is consistent with recent approaches to health that have focused on the important role that social class, social inequality, social structure, and social networks play in shaping health outcomes.

The concrete value of the SPB reformulation is illustrated through a discussion of recent research that focuses on the role of group memberships and associated social identities in shaping the psychology and biology of #stress.

Here's a sample of what we spoke about at #adisorder4everyone in Cumbria:

1. @medsconsult and @recover2renew read 'Cracked' by James Davies (now @CEP_UK ) when published 2013
2. @medsconsult volunteered to help to compile the #unrecognisedfacts document for 2014 launch of @CEP_UK…
@medsconsult @CEP_UK 3. We have collaborated voluntarily with the @TheBMA 's Board of Science to provide real patient experiences of prescribed drug dependence and withdrawal, leading to the BMA ‘call for action’ for support for affected individuals in October 2016…

Live tweeting this game in the spirit of my analysis of the Grammys and Oscars (generally I focus on minor issues/gossip that cater to a small subset of followers but show an overall appreciation for the entire enterprise). Also I have a favorite team this time. #USWNT 1/
The Dutch are also a good looking people. 2/
They also seem really tall. 3/

In honor of #NationalPetDay this thread shows some of the cool findings on #Children and #pets especially #dogs from our research lab @UF
First up: when kids are in a new stressful situation, having their #Dog with them makes them feel less #stress…
#Children who call their #Dog over to be petted have lower levels of the #stress sensitive hormone cortisol than children who don't call their dog or children whose dogs hover around them anyway…
What leads some #Children to pet their #dogs more than other kids? The results may or may not surprise you...

1/ Is willpower myth or muscle? Using eating & #dieting as an example, let’s discuss the science behind #willpower, when willpower fails, and what we can learn from all of this to help us break bad #habits. A long thread, but follow along to learn why willpower is really a myth.
2/ If you're a #primarycare provider trying to help patients lose weight, a #nutritionist trying to get someone to stick to a healthy #diet, or simply trying to eat better yourself: Do you ever feel frustrated, helpless or like a failure in changing #habits?
3/ Why is habit change so hard? Have we not come up with the perfect strategy? Do we simply need more #willpower (or a kick in the pants)?

For years you’ve been told that willpower is the 🔑 to breaking bad habits… but what if I told you that science says otherwise?

5 Life-Enhancing Benefits of Strength Training for Adults Over 55 🏋🏽‍♀️

Strength training and regular aerobic activity help prevent many chronic and degenerative diseases related to #aging.

Here are 5 #health benefits that strength training can provide to older adults...

1. Stronger Muscles

Stronger muscles protect the joints of the body. Muscle weakness can cause the hips, spine, and shoulder to be less stable and more prone to injury.

A stronger body can withstand the #stress of daily activities.

2. Chronic Pain Relief

Many #chronicpain issues are a result of muscle weakness and muscle imbalances.

Strength exercises can correct these imbalances to restore the function and integrity of the joints.

Good morning from a UK with slightly less dull weather! I want to discuss two topics which are often confused & misunderstood, but first I wanted to clarify a few things from yesterday's threads #earthquake #Stress #faults 1/n
Referring back to the block diagram for dip-slip faults from yesterday, @CriticalStress_ noted that the stress arrows at the top were wrong. All faults have a confining (inward) compressional stress, but stresses from other directions can be larger 2/n
This diagram from @SEELeeds shows that in the example block diagram I gave the smallest stress (sigma-3, min) is inward perpendicular to the fault. The primary stress - the largest amount of force acting on the rock to produce a normal fault - is vertical: GRAVITY! 3/n

Every day next few days I'll share one #depression/#anxiety insight from my own experience. If it helps anyone a wee bit, it'll be worth it.
1. "#Happiness" can scare #anxiety patients. In our heads, things are always going wrong. Fear of a "happy" moment undone is doubly painful.
Sorry, this won't be a daily affair as I had earlier imagined. But here's insight #2 based on my brush with #depression/#anxiety.
