Many people are still unaware of the fact that stress is one of the leading causes of all diseases and health conditions, even though experts constantly talk about it. Often when we are overstressed, we might not even feel the stress, as it masks itself under several symptoms.
The most common signs that you are overstressed are:
Your Sex Drive Has Declined
A lot of people don’t think to acknowledge the connection between stress and a decrease in libido—or simply don’t want to think about how this is taking place in their sex lives. Anyway, being overstressed leads to exhaustion, a reduction in physical stamina, and hormonal changes that make intimacy less appealing.
You Can’t Stop Considering Work or Problems
If you are constantly thinking about finances, work, obligations, and cannot relax, you are definitely under a huge stress. You cannot find a solution until you detach from the problem. The excessive worrying can result in physical and psychological issues.
Carolyn Jacob, MD, a founder and medical doctor of Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, claims that people lose 100 hairs on a daily basis and most of the people are not even able to notice that. So, if you are experiencing a change in hair loss by the masses, it’s time you take a look at what’s emotionally causing these physical changes.
You Feel Pain in the Body
If you are under high stress levels, your body will slowly start to break down. First you’ll experience stomach issues, diarrhea, ulcers, tense muscles, chest pains and palpitations. Than, you will get aches all over, arthritis will flare up, and even headaches will be screaming for your attention. In order to deal with this problem you should immediately manage stress and do everything you can to lower it and give your body the break it needs.
Are you eating too much or either forgetting to eat (and losing weight)? Stress will slow down your metabolism and you’ll gain weight. Change in appetite is how we’re being influenced and a radar to our physical and emotional bodies. You should examine the problem and try a proper treatment if you experience some of these without some evident reason.
