Stress is the normal physical response to events that make the human mind feel threatened in some way. It affects us all and you may notice symptoms ebb and flow on a daily basis. Most of us are used to stress, that we may not recognize it until it’s too late. Stress is everywhere, and while some stress may not affect you too much, others can have enormous impact on your health and wellness. As humans, we each respond to stress differently, some turn to grieve with tears, others yell, while others may just lie low. Stress, whichever way it appears, knowing its symptoms easily help us combat it. Here are a few ways to tell if you’re stressed:
“There are many indicators that can signal stress in your life and body. Beyond those physical signs of sore and stiff muscles are many physiological and emotional indicators. One of the first is feeling rushed and not having time to get everything done. Waking up at night thinking or worrying about unfinished tasks. Feeling like you have more problems, accidents and things going wrong in your life. You find yourself having no patience with coworkers or family. You find it hard to let go of frustrations. There are also other physical problems such as aches, pains, headaches, insomnia, high blood pressure and fatigue.”
“Stress can manifest in many different ways. Our mental health, as well as our physical health, can deteriorate from chronic stress patterns. Some of the minor complaints of stress include the inability to focus, trouble sleeping and muscle fatigue, leading to worse symptoms such as extreme weight gain or loss, anxiety or depression if the stress isn’t managed.”
“Signs of stress are different for everyone but some general ones are headaches, tension, gastrointestinal issues, teeth clenching or grinding, body tension, emotional changes, fatigue, loss of interest, and being scatter-brained.”
Now that you know the common signs of stress, it’s important to know how to combat it. Here are a few ways you can help manage and reduce your stress levels:
