What is Chronic Stress and What are the Symptoms

Are you often moody and irritated?

Does it feel like you are constantly worrying about something? If this feels close to home, you may be suffering from Chronic Stress.

Chronic stress is a prolonged and constant feeling of stress that can negatively affect your health. This can be caused by the everyday pressures of family and work or by traumatic situations.

Chronic stress is not always easy to spot.

Stress is a biological response to demanding situations. It can impact your physical and emotional health and can also affect your relationships and home life. Chronic stress can also determine the difference between success and failure on the job.

When you begin to feel overwhelmed and pressure, this is a sign you are stressed. You may also feel like you are unable to regain control over your life. For example, you may have some important deadlines at work, a family party to arrange. It is important to take a step back as stress can have a detrimental effect on productivity. Some of the potential causes of stress are high-pressured jobs, financial difficulties, and challenging relationships.

Finding ways to manage stress is imperative for overall well-being. Self-help and relaxation strategies are effective. 

In most circumstances, stress can be temporary. When you have had stressful emotions for a prolonged period it can be a sign of chronic stress.

Are you unsure if you have chronic stress? Here are some of the symptoms: fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty sleeping. Chronic stress is different to stress as it puts pressure on the body for an extended period. Which can cause a range of symptoms and increase the risk of developing certain illnesses.

Several strategies can help reduce stress levels and improve well-being. It is important to understand the signs and the symptoms of stress and to speak to friends and family. It is also important to identify and understand your triggers. Most importantly, take regular breaks and take yourself away from the situation if you feel extremely stressed. It is imperative to take breaks, both for yourself and you’re work-life. Excessive stress can interfere with your productivity and performance.

Remember to LISTEN to your body and take regular BREAKS.
