We all experience stress of one kind or another. Most people associate stress with a negative event, but it can also be felt at positive times in our lives: the birth of a child, a promotion at work, or even a marriage proposal. Stress, in small doses, can become detrimental and in some chronic cases, even deadly. The body has control mechanisms to counteract everyday stress. Often a stress response is so mild it can go unnoticed. However, if stress is extreme or long lasting, these control mechanisms can be overwhelmed. Chronic stress over long periods sets the stage for serious, long-term damage.
Signs of Stress
- Weight loss/gain
- Severe behavioral changes
- Memory loss
Although some of the symptoms can be caused by other issues (improper diet, allergies, cold, flu…), be aware of your body’s “out-of-the-norm” responses, especially those that appear following a significant positive or negative event.
