Experienced by everybody at some point in their life, but still goes unnoticed or becomes severe to the extent that it requires medical attention!

Stress is defined as a response to threat and in most cases, it interferes moderately in our daily life. Having some stress due to work, social factors, economic factors, etc., is not harmful and can be dealt by simple things like meditation, yoga, physical activity, or just sharing about it with peers. A few indications that you are or being stressed include:

  • Being overstretched
  • Being pressurized
  • Worrying for insignificant things

To conclude, if stress is not handled properly, it can turn into chronic stress and can lead to physical medical conditions like severe and continuous headaches, high blood pressure, chest pain, heart palpitations, skin rashes, and insomnia. The psychological effects include depression, panic attacks, and different form of anxiety. The best way to handle stress is to know its source; however, always consult your healthcare provider before it starts affecting your health!
