Stress occurs when you feel too much emotional or mental pressure and can’t cope. Although it can motivate you to try new things and challenge yourself, it can also be inhibiting. We all deal with stressful situations differently, but not everyone can manage stress as well as others. It’s important to know when to slow down and when to seek help.
We all live very busy lives and stress can be caused by many situations, from meeting people or making a presentation at work through to dealing with money problems and relationship issues. When stress builds, it can have a negative effect on both our physical and mental health. Work-related stress, for example, can stem from having too much work and too little time; a poor work/life balance; or in-office bullying. If unmanaged, it can leave you feeling worried and demotivated, and you can become unproductive and even unwell.
Common symptoms of stress include:
- Physical: fatigue, headaches, insomnia, nausea, pounding heart.
- Emotional: anger, anxiety, depression, irritability, low moods.
- Mental: lack of interest, loss of concentration, negative thoughts, poor judgement.
