3 ways your body tells you that you're stressed

How to tell you're stressed.

Sometimes that headache isn't because you haven't had your cup of tea yet.

It could be your body trying to tell you to take it easy. To reduce your workload. To take a short holiday.

Here are three ways your body is telling you, you're stressed.

1. Physical symptoms.

When you're stressed, the extra strain can cause physical symptoms to appear.

They include:

  • Low libido

2. Emotional symptoms

According to Mayo Clinic you may need to pay closer attention to your well being if you experience the following:

  • Being unable to concentrate

3. Behavioral symptoms

  • Excessive smoking

If you experience a combination of these after a change of environment, a traumatic event, change of jobs, loss, or any life changes- you should seek assistance. When left unchecked, stress can lead to cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes.
