Humans generally are not immune to stress but that’s not a good reason for one to subject herself to it.
You have to manage your stress so that you don’t look older than your age. Yes, you’re just over 50 and there are amazing things ahead of you to accomplish.
But there can’t be any amazing accomplishments if you’re too overwhelmed with life’s negative encounters.
Don’t be like feeble minds who felt that (wo)man must be subjected to stress all the days of her life.
Do you know what stress is capable of doing?
It can make you sick mentally and physically. That’s one reason too big to set aside. You just have to learn how to decompress, or “woo-sah” before it ruins your life.
But if you are feeling any of these 10 signs, you have too much stress and that’s too bad for your well-being.
Easily Agitated, Frustrated Or Moody
Being easily agitated, frustrated or moody are signs that you’re suffering from emotional stress. People who suffer from emotional stress usually lose their self-confidence and self-esteem in no distant time.
Moreover, stress can make you feel overwhelmed each time challenges are in your life. It easily robs you the courage to forge ahead and solve the challenges that confront you.
Feeling Lonely, Worthless And Depressed
Nothing can rob you of your self-confidence than stress. At its peak, stress renders one useless, lonely, and depressed.
Avoiding Other People
When overwhelming moments take over, you just feel the right thing to do is avoid people. Why? You look down on yourself and you conclude that you’ve failed in life.
Overwhelm can neutralize your energy drive. It can render you incompetent in the course of performing a task.
Chest Pain And Rapid Heartbeat
People who are prone to stress say that it makes their hearts beat at an alarming rate. This rapid heartbeat always result in chest pain.
Rather than solving your problems, worrying compounds it the more. Different negative encounters makes you worry more on things beyond your control.
Forgetfulness And Disorganization
Stress can make you forget the things you have to do. It keeps you disorganized even as you try to run your daily tasks.
Procrastinating And Trying To Avoid Responsibilities
Procrastination is one of the end-products of a stress-filled life. When you’re stressing, you begin to avoid your responsibilities, and that’s too bad for your future goals.
Nothing could make a person pass poor judgement more than stress. This kind of mind remains unstable and it can’t make a reasonable judgment.
