Recognizing the Signs and Symptoms of Stress
Are you one of the more than 40 million Americans suffering from anxiety and stress? By understanding the signs and symptoms of stress, you can better recognize it in yourself and take the proper measures to overcome the damage stress causes. This article explores five of the most common stress symptoms and how to treat them in a natural, healthy, and effective way.
Trouble sleeping is perhaps the most common symptom of stress. Typically caused by mental and emotional disturbances, sleep disorders can include anything from perpetual oversleeping and sleep apnea to delayed sleep phase syndrome and insomnia. If you find yourself failing to get regular, refreshing sleep, consider making small changes to your diet by avoiding caffeine or other stimulants after lunch, cutting down on your sugar intake, and avoiding any ‘screen time’ on computers or mobile devices within a couple of hours of your bedtime.
Difficulties in Relationships or Marriage
Stress can make it difficult to express love and gratitude, which causes problems in a marriage or close relationships. If you’ve ever heard the phrase that we “take our stress out on those closest to us,” you likely understand how this can be a sign of stress. When you find high tensions in your relationships, take a minute to evaluate your present situation and pay extra attention to any potential stressors in your life. One of the best ways to treat this symptom is to take some alone time by reading a book, exercising, or simply having some quiet time. This is a great way to identify, acknowledge, and contrast the things causing you stress. In addition, remember to communicate with your partner. Open, honest discussion with your partner, with a focus on collaboration rather than contention, can help to reduce your stress level.
Uncontrollable Cognitive Stress
There are quite a few signs of cognitive stress that can indicate your overall well being is also stressed. These signs include:
-Feeling overwhelmed and overloaded with information
-Having an accelerated sense of time
-Excessive feelings of worry, guilt, shame, and jealousy
-Heightened self-criticism and self-loathing
-Regular anxiety or panic attacks
-Not feeling in control
