Stress For many of us, stress has become a part of everyday life. Unrealistic and sometimes unachievable expectations or deadlines. Cranky work colleagues. Long hours at badly behaved computers. Juggling your work/life balance. Family commitments. Screaming children, traffic jams and bills. Just a few examples of factors we need to confront and overcome on a daily basis.
Stress can induce symptoms such as depression, anxiety, irritability, a lack of concentration and fluctuations in appetite. Such symptoms then manifest in physical reactions such as insomnia, exhaustion, hypertension, nausea, aches from tense muscles and a lowered immunity to colds and infections. Chronic stress can even lead to serious health concerns such as back problems, migraines, digestives issues, skin conditions, obesity and heart disease. In short, stress can seriously damage your health.
