Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. Mostly, stress helps you stay focused and alert. But too much stress can cause problems. Stress can result in physical symptoms, such as sleeping problems, fatigue, neck and back pain, headache, and stomach troubles. In addition, psychological symptoms can occur such as worrying and feeling anxious, irritability, and feelings of insecurity.
Often, when stressed, you tend to start thinking negatively. As a result of the physical, psychological and negative thought state, you are going to behave differently. You might for example start to avoid certain situations, or seek conflicts more often.
When stress symptoms last longer than three months this can lead you to feel very vulnerable. As a result, you find it more difficult to carry out tasks at work, or at home. When the symptoms become chronic, it can lead to burnout.
