At some point in our lives all of us will experience stress of some kind. There are different triggers for stress and different people handle this in different ways. Everybody will have a small amount of stress in their lives, and in small amounts this isn’t really deemed as being a problem. When you have a very stressful life or stress builds up on you over time, this can become a serious issue and can have negative impacts on your general health and wellbeing.
Stress can be easily overlooked as something everybody has, but it is important to recognise the signs of excess stress and make changes in your life to relax and make sure this doesn’t get on top of you. This is why we support International Stress Awareness Week, from 1st to the 5th November 2021.
This is a great way to raise awareness and ensure you are not letting the effects of stress negatively impact your life.
The governments HSE program describe the main symptoms of stress as being
- Mood swings
- Being withdrawn
- Loss of motivation or commitment
- Increased emotional reactions
- Become twitchy and nervous
Be sure to look out for these signs in your friends and family and help bring awareness to the negative impacts of stress and look at making positive changes for a more relaxed and calm life.
