Stress is the normal physical response that you have when you’re faced with a challenge. Anxiety, on the other hand, is a different condition altogether and is more similar to constant fear and often comes with no identifiable reason.
Here are a few common effects stress and anxiety can have on different aspects of your life, according to The Mayo Clinic.
Common Effects of Stress:
On your body: Headaches, muscle tensions or pain, chest pain, fatigue, change in sex drive, upset stomach, sleep problems, frequent illness.
On your emotions: restlessness, lack of motivation or focus, irritability or anger, sadness or depression, forgetfulness, feeling overwhelmed, insecurity.
On your behavior: Over or under eating, angry outbursts, drug/alcohol use, social withdrawal, oversleeping or too little sleep, relationship conflicts, crying spells, avoidance/procrastination.
Stress management is an important skill and can go a long way towards helping restore balance to your life.
When to seek help:
An estimated 40 million Americans live with some type of anxiety disorder. People with these disorders may feel anxious or stressed on a frequent basis and for prolonged periods of time.
