Why Is Stress So Dangerous to Your Body and Mind?

It’s no secret that stress stinks, but do you realize just how dangerous it actually is to your mind and body? Whether your stress is a result of sleep deprivation, high-pressure workdays, or financial instability, your emotional and physical health are taking the toll.

Physical Results of Stress

It is quite common for symptoms of stress to be confused with symptoms of other health problems like high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms on a regular basis, stress could very well be the culprit.

  • Headache
  • Muscle pain and tension
  • Fatigue, even after sleeping
  • Diminished sex drive
  • Weight gain

Emotional Results of Stress

Of course, stress doesn’t limit its impacts to your physical health. It also takes ahold of your emotional wellness and threatens to rob you of your personality. Common effects of stress on your emotions include problems like anxiety, restlessness, irritability, depression, and lack of focus.
