Symptoms of Stress
Did you know?
It is time to stop ignoring your stress symptoms.
Recognizing the symptoms of stress is important. Many people deal with physiological symptoms on a daily basis and don’t even realize that high amounts of stress are worsening or causing them. Our goal is to help you identify not only the causes of your stress but also the different ways in which it presents itself. There are also both negative and positive forms of stress. Stress can be a healthy way to motivate and encourage us to improve. Learning to distinguish the difference between the two is important.
Everyone is stressed, so why should you deal with it?
Failing to deal with stress can lead to serious health consequences. High levels of stress actually increase certain hormones in the body including adrenaline and cortisol. While these hormones are necessary, too much of them can negatively affect you. An excess of adrenaline can lead to anxiety symptoms, an increased heartbeat, and higher blood pressure. An increase in cortisol can cause weight gain, high blood pressure, and it can negatively affect your mood. Effectively managing the symptoms of anxiety requires an all-inclusive approach, considering both the physiological and physical symptoms. Our therapists know how to spot the underlying causes of stress and can offer suggestions of what may work for you to help manage it.
