What is Stress?

Many people suffer from stress without being aware of it. They may be aware of feelings of being overwhelmed and feeling as if they aren’t living in the “here and now”. They are not relaxed, centred, productive or healthy.

In our modern lives, we are bombarded with information and responsibilities, and all of this is on top of our daily routines and duties. Then we have our everyday worries and concerns, our careers, work pressures, deadlines, managing our time, paying bills, keeping in touch with people, our homes, unexpected problems that we encounter, and so on. It’s not surprising that it can become too much.

Anxiety, Depression, Panic Attacks and Stress are the most common problems come to me with.

When our brain and/or emotions reach the point where it has too much to deal with, it cannot cope. At this point our brain will do any number of different things – every individual will react to stress in their own unique way.

Common Stress Symptoms & How to Manage Them

There is no definitive set of symptoms for stress, however, there are some indicators.

It is likely that you will know that you are feeling stressed and mostly, it is obvious why. Sometimes though, a sufferer may be experiencing stress and not necessarily know why.

It is not advised to use this list as a form of self-diagnosis, nor should you experience all of these symptoms to be classed as having an anxiety disorder. In all cases, if you suspect you may be suffering from depression, seeking your doctor’s medical opinion first to rule out any physical issues as the cause is the best option. Once you have confirmed it is an issue of the mind and the emotional system then together we can set about resolving it.

Feeling Overwhelmed

The stress that you’re dealing with may leave you feeling very overwhelmed. It may feel like you have too much on your plate and not sure where best to turn for help.

Poor Sleep

Stress can tend to trigger poor sleep, or difficulty getting to sleep. This is because your brain is working in overdrive and unable to wind down effectively.

Lack of Concentration

Difficulty concentrating is a normal and periodic occurrence for most people. Tiredness and emotional stress can cause concentration problems in most people.

Feeling Anxious

Stress and anxiety are very closely linked and symptoms tend to overlap. Feeling stressed may exacerbate feelings of worry or anxiety.
