    The causes of the state of nervous tension can be very different:

    • Changing the conditions of existence. Previously, the levels of physical and neuropsychic tension of man corresponded to each other. Now there is a clear advantage in the direction of the second, which adversely affects the state of health.
    • Increased information flow. Technical progress, high-speed information exchange, lack of free time require a person to perceive and process a huge amount of data, which causes his brain to remain in constant tension.

    • Increase in the number of unwanted contacts. The number and time of unpleasant contacts in public transport, on the street, in the queue at a bank or a store is much more than pleasant communication( in the family circle, with friends).
    • Long stay in electromagnetic fields. Scientific and technological progress made life easier for a person, but made him permanently in the zone of electromagnetic radiation( computers, televisions, microwave ovens, etc.).
    • Increase in background noise. In large cities, a person is constantly in a background noise. Even after returning in the evening after work, many people first of all include a TV that does not allow the brain to relax, causing headaches, sleep disturbances, insomnia, rapid breathing, increased blood pressure, psychosis and nervous overexertion.
    • Adverse environmental background. A high level of carbon monoxide, smog, automobile exhausts, oxides of sulfur, nitrogen, zinc, radioactive fumes have a negative effect on gas exchange in the lungs and brain, affecting the nervous system and psyche.
    • Age changes. With age, the defenses of the body weaken, the hormonal background changes, everyday and material problems induce a person to take a more negative view of real existence. The troubles, which you forget about when you are young, or do not pay attention to them, in adulthood are forced to scroll them several times, doing self-flagellation, psychological self-destruction, causing strong emotions and stress.

    As a rule, the neuropsychic tension is accompanied by poorly controlled muscular overstrain. A sedentary lifestyle and constant nervousness leads to a person constantly feeling a hypertonic and pulling pain in the neck, shoulder girdle, and waist. Each movement is given to him with effort and huge energy costs, reduced efficiency, irritability appears, which further exacerbates the psychological state.
