Most of us start dreaming about our next vacation on the first day after returning to work, and that’s fine. Work is often stressing that we unconsciously struggle with all the time. However, there are physical signs that you really need to take a break. We would like to talk about the 8 most frequent.
Disturbing Sign of Stress
Your body may indicate that you need to rest if you have discomfort in your head. A very large workload generally produces moderate to severe pain in the head, neck, and eyes.
Also, a high level of stress can cause migraine attacks.
7. Digestion problems
When your brain works at full speed for a long time, your digestive tract suffers more. In fact, it sinks into a kind of shock.
The most common consequence of this condition is irritable bowel syndrome, associated with stool problems and pain in different areas of the stomach.
6. Frequent Colds
Stress increases your heart rate, speeding up blood circulation. That and raising blood pressure together can cause immunity problems, resulting in colds more often.
5. Inconsistent Body Weight
Severe stress often leads to rapid weight gain. This is caused by an increase in the hormone cortisol that makes you want to eat whatever close by.
The accumulation of simple carbohydrates in your meals also leads to being overweight.
We have already mentioned that your digestive system suffers when stressed; therefore, stomach pain and nausea can also be symptoms of lack of rest.
If you bend over, find it difficult to get up, and always struggle not to fall asleep, remember that constant tiredness is also a sign of a heavy workload.
2. Chest Pain
Chest pains and aches caused by stress generally have no connection to the heart and are of a purely neurological origin. If you often experience sharp chest pain, try to relax first.
However, don’t forget that stress can lead to heart failure; therefore, see your doctor if you suspect heart problems.
1. Decreased Sexual Activity
The brain stops producing enough chemicals responsible for sexual desire, so much so that a person can lose any desire to make love.
If you or your partner has this type of problem, remember that a good rest can clear things up again.
