Common signs of stress

We all know that stress is an automatic body response in humans (and animals) that is activated when we’re faced with life-threatening situations.

But modern-day life has resulted in this natural response being triggered even when our life isn’t being threatened.  Stress affects everyone in different ways. This could be mentally, emotionally, physically or a mixture of all three.

Feeling stressed for long periods of time can seriously damage your health and can lead to:-

  • Sleepless nights
  • Physical discomfort (headaches, IBS, stiff & aching joints)
  • High blood pressure
  • Strokes
  • Heart attack
  • Skin conditions
  • Burnout

Sometimes it’s difficult to see that some of the behaviours, thoughts and feelings you display and have could be due to you being stressed.

Signs of stress

Here are a few signs of stress to look out for in yourself and in others.

Once you can recognise changes in yourself and you can attribute them to being stressed, you can make the decision to change things; create better habits or get help.

If you are worried about any signs or symptoms, contact your GP as these signs could also relate to medical conditions.
