The emotional tension generated by energetic children
It is easy for the energetic tendency of the character to generate a lot of emotional tension that the boys do not know how to dominate, causing states of irritability, stress, nightmares, etc.
All people generate, more or less, tension before extraordinary situations, important or unexpected. The problem is when this tension is not properly controlled and it is generated in ordinary and unimportant everyday situations.
There are a thousand details by which one can know if he is more or less prone to emotional tension: biting the nails or the fists of some clothes, bringing the fingers to the nose, tearing the scabs from the wounds, biting the handle of the pen, often dreaming about things that make him suffer, remaining restless at the red light , suffer a lot by watching a thriller or a sporting event, etc.
Tension originates in us when we are under the influence of a pressing need that we have not yet been able to satisfy. It is a natural reaction of our organism that predisposes us to action. This emotional state ordinarily does not have a great intensity, and in some people it is almost continuous. This situation, if we do not control it, becomes a corrosive element of our health.
