Signs of Chronic Stress and How to Tackle It
It's easy to feel helpless when you're dealing with chronic stress. You're not alone. There's a lot you can do on your own to feel better. Start here.
Do you feel like you're losing control of your life as a result of stress? Even though you have set aside time to destress, do you find it hard to relax? Stress can emerge from a variety of causes, be it family matters, the workplace, and, perhaps most importantly, the changing dynamics of Covid-19. But chronic stress is more serious, though curable. Chronic stress is the persistent sense of being stressed and overwhelmed over a lengthy period of time. The signs of chronic stress include soreness or tightness in muscles, shortness of breath and rapid breathing, consistent and ongoing increase in heart rate, appetite changes, shift in social behavior, changes in skin, low energy, cloudy or unclear thinking, and sleepiness or insomnia. If you can relate to any of these, here are some scientific ways to tame stress. From trying meditation, positive affirmations, box breathing to listening to music and positive self talk, these activities are proven to benefit your body and mind.
