For many, stress is so common that it has become a way of life; sometimes we don’t even recognize our high levels of stress as a problem or an area that may be having a negative impact on our daily functioning. Stress, in small doses, isn’t always bad- it can help you perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best. However, when you’re constantly running in emergency mode, your mind and body pay the price. You can protect yourself by recognizing the signs and symptoms of stress and taking steps to reduce its harmful effects.

Common symptoms of being overly stressed include:


  • Memory problems

  • Inability to concentrate

  • Poor judgment

  • Seeing only the negative

  • Anxious or racing thoughts

  • Constant worrying

  • Moodiness

  • Irritability or short temper

  • Agitation, inability to relax

  • Feeling overwhelmed

  • Sense of loneliness and isolation

  • Depression or general unhappiness
