Exhaustion, sleepless nights, palpitations, concentration problems, irritability, and aches and pains—these are some of the signs your body exhibits when it’s feeling a significant amount of stress. While stress is not a new concept, the pandemic certainly made it all too common as people were overwhelmed with sudden changes at work, in their finances, and in their day-to-day lives.
Stress manifests differently in people. Statistics show that 77% say it affects their physical state, 73% feel it negatively impacts their mental health, while 48% report trouble sleeping. People, especially those who work from home, feel unmotivated and experience burnout quickly.
When this happens, and you fail to address the problem, it may affect your surroundings, relationships with other people, or worse, progress into an illness.
That said, when you feel stress kicking in, it’s best to address it head-on and do something to relieve it. Check out what you can do to take a break and recharge for a clearer mind and a healthier body.
