8 Important Signs That Your Body Is Very Stressed


Many people have the luxury of trying to balance their work life with their family life. This can be very straining on the body. In many cases, people experience aches and pains and sometimes get sick. This is normal, but if something is constantly bothering you, you shouldn’t ignore it. There are signs that will indicate your body is stressed.

It’s not easy to live a balanced life. You try to live by a routine, but like Newton’s Third Law states, anything that can happen will happen. Overcoming adversity can make people stronger, but it can also harm their body. It’s essential to take interest in how the body works, because it will help you when the body is telling you something is wrong.

Below are the top signs that indicate your body is stressed.

Weight Change: In certain situations, it can be difficult to manage your weight. Even a proper diet and exercise sometimes fail. If you experience an intense or traumatic situation, your body will increase the production of cortisol. This hormone is what stabilizes the fats and carbohydrates. It also supports your sugar levels in the bloodstream. If too much of this hormone is produced, you will eat more and produce less testosterone. This means the body will burn less calories and you will gain weight.

Skin Issues: Acne, Psoriasis and other skin diseases can be triggered due to excessive stress. Research has been conducted and concluded that there is a distinct connection between stress and skin issues.

Under the Weather: As I have already mentioned, stress causes the body to produce excessive cortisol. But what I did not mention is that chronic stress causes the immune system to become sensitive to cortisol. This results in an increase in inflammation and a higher risk of the body becoming sick.

Stomach Disorders: Research has proven that chronic stress can have a negative impact on the gastrointestinal tract. The reason this occurs is that stress causes the muscles to tire out and squeeze the organs. Medicines can help reduce the pain, but in order fully get rid of it, you need to figure out what is triggering your anxiety. If you get rid of the anxiety, then the issue is no longer caused by stress.
