Your body will always tell you if you’re not taking good enough care of yourself.
Symptoms of stress can vary depending on personality and the type of stress you are exposed to. Most often it’s annoyance and sleep problems are the first signs of stress, and it develops over time if not dealt with. Many turn blue or short-tempered, feel their memory is getting worse and there’s a risk of developing an actual depression. Other people may experience physical symptoms such as tiredness, headache and dizziness.
