Regardless of your age, occupation, or family in life everyone deals with stress. It is important to find healthy ways to deal with the stress and support our bodies. 

Physical Symptoms

It's easy to ignore the stress we feel. Sometimes stress becomes so common that we do not even recognize the physical symptoms that show us we are under stress. These symptoms are a warning signal that our body is giving us, similar to the "check engine" light on our car.

  • Low energy
  • Digestive issues such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, nausea, and acid reflex
  • Headaches
  • Chest pain or rapid heart beat
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Insomnia or troubles staying asleep
  • Frequent illnesses and infections

  • Stuttering or difficulty speaking
  • Difficulty recalling common events or things
  • Tension in face, neck, or jaw
