Stress has a way of creeping into our lives, sometimes without our even realizing it. Managing it begins with learning the signs and symptoms of stress. Some of the symptoms are minor, while others are more serious and even hazardous to our health. These include;
  • having a hard time making decisions
  • having trouble meeting important deadlines
  • experiencing feelings of fatigue or sleepiness even with enough sleep
  • having low self-esteem
  • feeling that there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get the job done
  • tending to criticize and be more argumentative
  • experiencing moodiness or depression
  • being forgetful 
  • having constant feelings that something is wrong or missing
  • having a change in appetite so that you eat more or less than usual
  • encouraging smoking, drinking, or using drugs to cope with your job
  • experiencing rapid, irregular heartbeats or heart pounding
  • experiencing rapid breathing or hyperventilation 
  • having muscle aches, headaches, or migraines
  • having high blood pressure
  • experiencing break outs or skin rashes.

It's possible that some of these symptoms may be caused by problems other than stress, such as the flu. Ask your doctor about symptoms that last for more than a week. If your doctor decides that stress is the problem, you can work together to understand and relieve it.
