    How to know when love fades away in your marriage?
    How do you know when it is time to stay or leave a romantic relationship?
    Today we will talk about the fear of uncertainty and how to deal with your emotional pain when love is fading away in your relationship. And of course, I will give you some tips at the end of this episode to either reconnect in your relationship or recover from the emotional pain of separation. 
    This is not to be confused with the daily hustle and bustle, especially when you have small children, with the numbness that brings high levels of stress or emotional detachment due to previous trauma.
    You may not hear or see the signs of love fading away because you are afraid of changing what is known, afraid of entering a new phase of your life, or the social, financial, and emotional changes that a separation brings. Nothing is more painful than a divorce, and yet, we pay little attention to what it takes to prevent it. 
    If you are no longer in love with your partner, you may still care for them and wish them no harm. I have worked with couples who are in the process of divorce and care deeply for each other’s well-being even if they are angry. They just may not know how to express their feelings properly. 
    "Why would my love fade away?" You may ask. Well, today I'll be giving you the answer to this question, and we talk in depth about what to do if the love in your relationship ends, how to recover it, and in the opposite case, how to heal from a separation.

    Have you got frustrated when you present serious problems to your doctor and the only response is “this is because you have stress”? And you leave the office more confused than when you came in.
    It is true, the body can react in many different ways to high levels of stress, sometimes even resulting in very serious medical situations. It is incredible how our body experiences our emotions. Wait, before you also get frustrated here with me as well. I am here to tell you that you can do more for your health than you may think. Also, you can lower your stress levels in much simpler ways than you think. So let’s begin, shall we?
    Last summer, I went to the doctor with a series of symptoms, mainly a particular headache. I am normally pretty healthy, but this was a chain of complaints, so I worried. As soon as I started talking with my doctor, she abruptly interrupted me and said “Stress, stress, stress!” The more I wanted to explain, the more she insisted. I was irritated by what I considered her lack of listening skills, so I got silent. Then she asked if I had been on a vacation recently. Yes, I said. To where? She asked, “to visit my family in Mexico”. Then she exclaimed with certainty: “Stress, stress, stress!” We both laughed. Then she finished the session, and I was left now considering her diagnosis. 
    As a psychologist, I understand how unpleasant it can be when someone else brings to your attention your lack of emotion management and its consequences. The good thing is that, in this case, I know how to immediately start addressing my problem. But most of my clients do not believe when their doctor suggests that their emotions are the main cause of their physical symptoms. And most doctors do not do a great job of remarking the importance of talk therapy and other holistic healing approaches. So let’s talk about it here.
    Yes, it may be true that you have physical symptoms that require medical care, and your doctor may lack the curiosity to investigate further. But also, it could be that you went too far when stretching yourself at the risk of damaging your body temporarily or sometimes permanently. 
    Adverse situations, small or big, generate a chemical reaction in your body that, in small doses, requires just an adjustment. When it comes to big and frequent doses of stress, it changes your physiology, impacting your physical health, your thoughts, and of course, your behaviors. 
    You may even have a logical answer like “it is because of my job, or the children, or only while I finish this project”. But the reality is that if your body is showing the consequences of stress, the “why” is less unimportant, and what matters more are the new habits you need to develop to counter these symptoms. 
    The problem is that those changes sometimes are difficult to notice, and have an accumulative effect. Thus, by the time you feel them, it could be because you are in an emergency, and the way back to your well-being is paved with serious life changes. 
    Thus, if your doctor tells you “Stress, stress, stress!” Before you run to google and search for more diagnoses, ask yourself the following questions:
    Have you had an ongoing emotionally challenging situation? Do you react as if your life depends on work, family, or any other tasks? Have you felt overwhelmed with what you consider small problems? Have you experienced fatigue, lack of energy, or difficulties sleeping? Are you moody, easily irritated, or less tolerant than usual?  Do you get stuck in the past or the future, unable to live in the present? Those and other questions may help you realize it is time to seek talk therapy, along with consulting your physician for your very genuine concerns, to make sure that there are no other physical issues. 
    Remember to consult with your psychologist. For now, I will leave with you some solutions

    How can I Reduce Anxiety?

    How can I Reduce Anxiety?

    In prior episodes like “Identify Your Anxiety” and “Do I have Anxiety?”, we have talked more in-depth about what anxiety is, and I recommend you go check them out after listening to this episode if you want to complete the information you will receive today, however, in this episode, we'll be talking not only about what anxiety is but also how to reduce it.
    We can define anxiety as difficulty to breathe, accompanied by feelings of discomfort and fear of losing control, be it in your personal or professional life.
    Anxiety is a stress-related disorder, and even though some levels of stress are a normal response from our body to frightful or shocking situations when you start experiencing continuous stress symptoms in your everyday life which hinder your activities and tasks, then it is the right moment to start considering having anxiety.
    Now that you have this definition in your head, I'm sure you could think of a few very stressful situations that could lead to experiencing anxiety.
    Anxiety can be caused by multiple reasons, and many factors can contribute to it, making it worse over time. However, there are many ways you can reduce the effects that anxiety can have both on your body and mind, and sometimes, it can be even simpler than you may think.
    *We recommend checking out our episodes “How do you Calm Anxiety?” and “Will my Anxiety Ever go Away?” if you would like to get some answers to the most common questions regarding anxiety.

Dr. Natalie Jones, PsyD, LPCC ,

Wonderful Resource

Dr. Carmen's podcast is a wonderful resource and is beautifully put together. I think it's really cool that she has a biligual podcast which focuses on issues within the Latino family. It's a mixture of positive and serious topics about the emotional health of the family. A great addition to anyone's podcast library.
