Learn to deal with hyperarousal.
Hyperarousal is the most common symptom felt by individuals with PTSD. It refers to a heightened sense of anxiety and stress, and it can result in anger, insomnia/sleeping problems, difficulty concentrating, engaging in self-destructive behaviors such as binge drinking, and more.
Hyperarousal is typically overlooked by Western psychiatric and psychological healing practices. Therefore, by turning to Eastern traditions such as yoga and breathing exercises, individuals with PTSD can find ways to cope with their hyperarousal.
