Stress can build from many positive or negative life experiences, events, and daily living.  Everyone has felt stress at some time or another.  Stress can manifest from being overwhelmed, finances, school, home, relationships, holidays, team involvement, and so much more. Each person can respond to stress differently.  

Sometimes it is difficult to recognize negative effects of stress developing until it is so palpable that other symptoms are showing.  These symptoms can include increased heart rate, headaches, muscle tension, chest pain, unexplained pressure, unexplained weight loss or gain, sleep problems (restless sleep, inability to fall asleep, hard time waking up, trouble remaining asleep), trouble focusing, among other physical and emotional disturbances. 

Stress from positive events can also create physical, emotional, and medical symptoms.

Stress can have a serious negative affect on physical, mental, and emotional health.  One may have a harder time making a decision, concentrating, or even getting through the day.

Stress can arise from anywhere, commuting, traffic, work, family, poor work-life balance, friends, relationships, school, neighbors, illness, medical care, to mention a few.

Going to a therapist can assist with reducing and managing stress to improve daily management of life and increase wellness. Here at Apricity Wellness Counseling, we can explore how it’s affecting you, your goals, and establish effective coping skills and protective factors to reduce harmful stress.
