Everyone on the planet experiences stress at some point in life. In fact, most humans encounter some form of stress each day, whether it is small or large. As we emerge from the holiday season, your stress levels may be particularly high right now. While we may consider stress as something that only occurs within our minds, it doesn’t take long before the physical symptoms of stress present themselves.

Stress can cause a chemical change in our bodies. How our bodies react to stress is a significant indicator of how our bodies are working. Symptoms of stress lead to a surprising number of physical, mental and emotional disorders that affect people on a daily basis. In terms of our emotional health and body health, you may be surprised to learn how widespread these stress-induced symptoms can be:

  • Low energy
  • Headaches
  • Upset stomach
  • Chest pain and rapid heartbeat
  • Aches, pains, and tense muscles
  • Insomnia
  • Frequent colds and infections
  • Low libido
  • Nervousness and shaking
  • Ringing in the ear
  • Cold or sweaty hands and feet
