Signs of Too Much Stress

Signs that your optimal level of stress has been exceeded include:
  • chronic muscle
  • tension (especially in the neck and back)
  • short temper
  • anxiety
  • excessive worry
  • insomnia
  • chronic fatigue
  • general nervousness
  • feeling “burnt-out” or “stressed out”
Chronic health problems associated with a prolonged stress response include:
  • tension headache
  • backache
  • ulcers
  • blood sugar irregularities
  • high blood pressure
  • heart disease
Thus too much stress has a general negative effect, leaving us vulnerable to many diseases, and inhibiting recovery as well.
