Symptoms Of Mental Stress And Solutions

 

Stress affects everyone from one degree or another. There are many types of daily stressors, such as the stress of driving in traffic, relationship stresses, job stresses, and financial stresses.
There are also stressors that come just once in a while but tend to be very severe, such as the death of a loved one, changing jobs, or having a baby. These stressors all add up to the point where it is inevitable that you will have symptoms and adverse health effects.

Stress is linked to several kinds of disease that are normally thought of as physical illnesses

 

These include high blood pressure, anxiety, strokes, heart attacks, depression, disturbances in the immune system (so you are more susceptible to disease), and viral conditions, such as the flu, the common cold, AIDS, and herpes.

Even autoimmune diseases are affected by stress. There are more than 100 autoimmune diseases that can be triggered or worsened by stress.

Stress can affect the skin

 

When you are under stress, you can get a variety of skin disease, such as hives, certain types of rashes, and atopic dermatitis. The GI system is also affected by stressful circumstances.
