Signs that you are stressed
Modern life can be tough. The pressures that life brings, like financial problems, health and wellbeing, or work-related issues, can all lead to feelings of stress.
Feeling that you cannot cope can contribute to physical problems like insomnia, lack of appetite, anxiety, headaches, or having low self esteem.
When you are under stress your body releases stress hormones, often called the “fight or flight” response. If handled properly, once the pressure is over, your body often returns to normal, but being under constant pressure can lead to further health problems.
