Do you need relief from stress?

Stress has become such a common part of our every day lives that we often don’t even realize how much it is affecting us. Why is this an issue? Stress symptoms can affect the body in many ways and if left unchecked, can lead to many health problems including high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and more. Unfortunately, it is possible to be suffering from extreme stress without even recognizing it and sometimes we do realize it but refuse to acknowledge just how badly we need relief from it.

If you’re unsure if this is you, here are some examples of symptoms that are commonly associated with stress:
• Sleep – insomnia or interrupted sleep is a common symptom of stress; a racing mind and inability to fall asleep are also sure signs that you are experiencing stress
• Muscle aches – when we are experiencing times of stress, it often shows up as muscle pain and aches as we are so tensed up we don’t even realize it – tightness in the neck, shoulders and back are common areas to carry stress and many also experience pain in their jaws from clenching
• Cravings – if you experience cravings for sugar, salt, caffeine or other vices, this could be a sure sign of stress – we often feel drawn to foods that comfort us during times of stress and these foods are different for everyone
• Headaches – during times of stress, it is common to experience headaches which can vary in severity among individuals and can range from tension headaches to migraines – regular headaches are a sure sign of stress
• Weakened immune system – being run down and experiencing regular illness can be directly related to stress as prolonged periods of stress can weaken the immune system
Do any of these symptoms sound familiar to you? If so, you are quite likely suffering from the effects of stress.
