Random Life Reflections From My ADHD Brain
Tension might mean a little busy and it’s not bad but stress implies a level of powerlessness - so there’s nothing wrong with tension because sometimes tension is how we grow but stress has to be addressed and we have to know the difference from one moment to the next.
I know the difference through my digestion system in terms of stress vs. tension.
For me, insomnia doesn't mean that anything is wrong in my life - it's just a feature that comes with ADHD, but the digestive system tells me how stressed I am, so that's how I know my own barometers, and we all have our own, so tune in and trust your body to tell you the difference between both.
Stress is not scary but it can't be for a prolonged period of time, while tension can be more fun and exciting overall as long as it doesn't last forever, balance I guess?
