13 Signs You Are Suffering From Too Much Stress

13 Signs You Are Suffering From Too Much Stress

Brainy Dose Presents: Signs You Are Suffering From Too Much Stress Unless you’re a millionaire, you probably
stress about all kinds of things, and most of the time, it’s over money. That’s not to say millionaires don’t stress,
but they usually stress about how to make even more or they fear losing it all. Of course there are many other things that
also cause stress but shit imagine if you didn’t have to worry about bills, school,
and work and you could just do whatever you want all the time because you never had to
worry about money. Anyways… Feelings of anxiety and tension probably get
you at some point just about every day and stress is an emotional issue because it’s
the way your body responds to what it perceives as an acute threat. The nervous system releases adrenaline and
cortisol which are both stress hormones. People often don’t realize they’re stressed
out and they minimize the stress they’re under and the effect it has. Now, in this video, you’re not gonna learn to become
rich, but the good news is that you can train yourself to spot the signs of too much stress
before it becomes a chronic health problem. Sometimes, physical signs of stress are mistaken
to be symptoms of some other issue, so pay attention to what your body is trying to tell
you. Number 1 – Forgetfulness If you find yourself forgetting to do things
lately, like forgetting to lock the front door or flush the toilet, you probably don’t
have Alzheimer’s but it can be much more than a silly accident. Stress and anxiety can mess with your head
and result in decrease in concentration and this can cause forgetfulness. Ongoing stress can shrink parts of your brain
that are responsible for emotion, memory and your nervous system. The best way to fight this symptom is to exercise
and everything will return to normal once your stress goes away. Number 2 – Weight Gain Around The Waistline When you’re overstressed, your habits change,
including your diet. If you find yourself eating and drinking more,
this will result in weight gain. The “stress hormone” Cortisol plays a
role in the fight-or-flight response, which is the physiological loop that gears your
body up to fight against danger, or to run for your life. This is vital when faced with immediate danger,
but increases in cortisol also occur in response to chronic, everyday stress. When cortisol is too high for too long, it
can increase the amount of fat you hold in your belly. So, if your jeans don’t fit anymore even
though you exercise regularly, stress is likely the cause, and it’s time to combine a healthier
diet with stress management. Number 3 – Stomach Aches Your nervous system is tightly linked to your
digestive system and stress can interfere with this connection. If you just had a taco and your stomach is
a mess, then just head over to the toilet. But if it happens often, and you aren’t
on a taco diet, it might be stress. That uneasiness you feel in your belly, might
be more than what you just ate. You can try over-the-counter pills, but the
best natural way to deal with this symptom is to exercise. Number 4 – Sore Jaw During the day, you’re ok, but then at night
while you’re sleeping, you could be grinding your teeth. You don’t know it’s happening until you
wake up, but then damn… you feel that sore jaw. Now, if you have a black eye complimenting
your sore jaw and no recollection of the night before, then you probably ended up in a situation
that you wouldn’t have if it weren’t for your drunk ass. Otherwise, it could be stress. It’s very common to grind your teeth when
you’re stressing, and this is really bad stuff because it can lead to tooth damage
and cracked teeth. It’s best to visit a dentist to see if there’s
anything you can do. Usually they’ll give you a mouth guard for
grinding. Number 5 – Back Pain The fight-or-flight response to stress increases
your blood pressure and speeds up your heart rate, and the stress hormones tighten the
muscles. This can be very painful. Move as much as you can. If you have a desk job, get up every half
an hour to stretch and walk around. If you have a shitty job where your boss is
breathing down your neck constantly and you can’t afford to take a quick break for a
stretch every 30 minutes, well, what can I say, perhaps it’s time to find a better
job. Number 6 – Constipation You feel like you need to go but it just doesn’t
come out. Well, it’s probably not the tacos. Perhaps you could try to eat some in this
case. But the cause is likely stress and this time
you need magnesium. Stress hormone production requires high levels
of magnesium, and stressful experiences lead to depletion of this mineral. In addition, if you’ve been eating loads
of sugar, this could be further depleting your magnesium levels. Magnesium is often referred to as the “calming
mineral” because it affects the way the brain and muscles relax during stress. And this includes the digestive tract. So, you gotta do what you gotta do, and try
eating some more spinach, quinoa, almonds and cashews – and cut down on the sugar. Number 7 – Cracked Lips or Sore Mouth This is a classic sign of vitamin B deficiency
because B vitamins are necessary for extracting energy from the carbs, protein and fat we
consume every day. When you stress, you use a lot of energy and
the vitamin gets used up. B6 especially, plays a key role in our bodies
producing the happy hormones serotonin and dopamine which are responsible for our mood,
and melatonin which controls sleep. Eat more foods that are rich in Vitamin B6,
such as bananas, leafy green vegetables, spinach, and potatoes. Number 8 – Sleeping Too Much Snoozing and stress go hand in hand. Stressful situations and feeling stressed
over an extended period of time can really mess with your sleep cycle and daytime alertness. It’s possible that what you are experiencing
is your brain subconsciously making you sleep longer in order to avoid daytime stressors. Or, the stress is disrupting your sleep so
the hours of shut eye you get are less restful, causing you to wake up tired. While a good night’s sleep is essential for
health, consistent oversleeping has been linked to a host of medical problems, including diabetes
and heart disease. Practicing good sleep hygiene will help you
get a healthy seven to eight hours of sleep each night, and experts recommend keeping
the same bedtimes and wake times every day. They also recommend avoiding caffeine and
alcohol close to bedtime. Exercising regularly and making your bedroom
a comfortable environment can also help you get the amount of sleep you need. Number 9 – Weird Dreams All The Time Strange dreams or even the same ones every
night can be a symptom of stress. They make you feel anxious and on the edge. If you normally don’t dream (or don’t
remember your dreams) and now all of a sudden it’s the opposite, try to figure out what’s
changed in your life and if there’s anything that adds stress to your day. It could be the trigger. Number 10 – Can’t Fall Asleep If you’re having trouble falling asleep
or staying asleep, and you know that the cause it’s not caffeine, it’s time to do something
about your stress levels. Stress can also lead to insomnia and then
you can’t sleep at all. According to studies, stress increases the
chances of that happening by 19%. When you’re worried, your nervous system
doesn’t shut down and you can’t sleep. Your brain stays hyperactive with no chance
of resting. Try to spend some time “winding down.” A person with insomnia needs a “buffer zone,”
a period of time to allow the activating processes in the brain to wind down. This allows the alerting mechanisms to decrease
their activity so that the sleep systems can take over. Start winding down two hours before bedtime. Stop all work and end phone calls, and get
off the computer. Instead, watch a light movie, read a book
or listen to some calm music. Number 11 – Can’t Concentrate Do you feel like you thrive under tight deadlines
and tense situations? Maybe you do, but most of us don’t. I know I don’t. And even if you do, it doesn’t last. Chemicals in your brain help you stay focused
for a while producing adrenaline that enhances your senses. But the more time you spend doing this, the
more damage you’re causing. Too much adrenaline for long durations will
make your brain notice and feel every little thing, making you distracted. So, instead of dwelling on a problem you can’t
solve, get your mind off it for a while. Shift your focus. Try whatever works for you, whether it’s yoga,
deep breathing, meditation, or just having a good laugh with a friend. The goal is to occupy yourself with a pleasant
task. This will provide the energy to regroup later. Number 12 – You Obsess Over Your Problems You can’t seem to get your mind off things,
regardless of what it is. Whether it’s financial worries, relationship
issues or whatever. This is a warning sign that stress is taking
over your life. With excessive worrying, your mind and body
go into overdrive as you constantly focus on “what might happen.” But, you won’t be able to find a solution
until you detach yourself from your problems and think more objectively. You need to think about how you can stop the
stress. Set aside 15 minutes each day where you allow
yourself to focus on problems and fears — and then vow to let them go after the 15 minutes
is up. Some people wear a rubber band on their wrist
and “snap” the rubber band if they find themselves going into their “worry mode.” Do whatever works for you! Number 13 – Your Patience Is Wearing Thin Finding yourself becoming less patient with
everyone around you, including people you actually care about, is often one of the first
signs that stress is slowly starting to get to you. We often displace our anger and anxiety, taking
it out on those nearby as a way of ensuring it gets expressed in some way, and this can
do far more harm than good. If you’re snapping at people or feeling
annoyed when in their company, let them know that you are stressed and consider that you
might need to ask for help coping with stress. If any of these symptoms sound painfully familiar,
it’s time to figure out exactly what is stressing you out and how you can deal with
it effectively. Long term stress is detrimental to your mental
and physical health, so it’s important to take care of yourself. It may be an unavoidable part of life, but
there are healthy ways to manage stress and minimize its side effects. Examples include exercise such as walking,
running, yoga or meditation; eating a healthy diet; and whenever possible, eliminating the
source of the stress. If you wanna stress less, subscribe to our
