Are You Dealing With Chronic Stress?
Although it seems like a simple answer, admitting when you are stressed is difficult for many individuals. Whether you are going through the everyday wear and tear or you find yourself in an extreme situation, unwanted stress can cause many harms to your mental, emotional and physical states if it is not addressed. When an individual is placed under a lot of stress, they may feel the need to project that hurt, anger, or anxiety onto others further enabling the cycle of stress.
How Stress Affects The Body
Stress can take many forms, but the most common indicator of someone experiencing stress is through their body language. If an individual is feeling overwhelming stress in their life, their body will demonstrate how and where the stress is taking over. The bodily toll that stress has on someone is a direct correlation to the mental and emotional hardships they may be facing internally. Speaking about stress on the body isn’t something to hide but rather a tool to look for when you believe somebody may be suffering from stress. Below are some common indicators that can help you identify whether someone you know is experiencing stress:
- Tightened muscles, particularly in the face or hands
- Fidgeting or inability to remain still for periods
- Intestinal issues such as stomach pains or frequent bathroom visits
- Decrease in their immune system support and persistent colds/viruses
