Stress is a common ailment of the modern age. We walk around with alarm bells ringing in our brains warning our bodies to prepare for action. The problem is that when the alarm bells never shut off, we become fatigued, sick, and unwell.
Stress is a normal part of life, but when we experience it for long periods without rest or a chance to recover, it becomes negative.
How do you know if you’re experiencing too much stress?
The following symptoms are “early warning signs” of excessive stress.
- Problems sleeping
- Fatigue, exhaustion, lack of energy
- Weight gain/loss due to sudden increase/decrease in appetite
- Indigestion and upset stomach
- Muscle tension in neck, back, and/or shoulders
- Feeling of being “out of it”
- General aches and pains
- Trouble concentrating
- Feelings of nervousness, shaking or sweating
- Grinding teeth or clenched jaw
43% of all adults suffer adverse health effects from stress.
