Relax! 3 Ways that Stress Can Ruin Your Life


Stress! Everyone can relate to being burdened by stress at some point each week. It’s unavoidable but it’s all about how you deal with your stress that makes the differences. Letting yourself become too stressed and angry can have consequences for the short and long term. Let’s take a look at the 3 ways that getting too stressed can ruin your life.

  1. Stress Can Cause Annoying Ailments

Have you ever become so stressed and frustrated that your head started to hurt?

Ever experience tension so bad in your shoulders and neck that you couldn’t be productive?

Has your stomach ever been twisted in knots when you get stressed?


Chances are, if you’ve dealt with a great deal of stress, these symptoms are going to sound terribly familiar. Stress can do a number on our bodies and the first signs of trouble are when you start experiencing minor but annoying side effects of stress. This includes:


  • Headaches
  • Tension headaches
  • Nausea
  • Acne
  • Chest tightness
  • Sadness / Depression


  1. Stress Makes You Lose Control

When you don’t have a handle on your stress levels, it’s going to be the one in the driver’s seat. Stress can play games with your emotions. Things you wouldn’t ordinarily do or say will happen in an instant when stress is let to roam free. You may become angry or find yourself crying for no reason. These mood swings are going to cause turmoil for you and those around you. In the long run, stress may directly impact your relationships in a negative way.

  1. Stress Can Lead to Long Term Health Issues

Never mind the headaches and acne, if you don’t put a stop to your stressing out, it is going to come back to get you in a big way. According to WebMD, 75% to 90% of all doctor's office visits are for problems related to stress. Conditions such as severe anxiety, dangerously high blood pressure, heart problems, and diabetes are just a few of the problems that are waiting for you.


Stress is a silent killer and, left unchecked, it can seriously ruin your life. Take action to stopping stress in its tracks. Try meditation, exercise, eat a healthy diet, or see a therapist. Do what you can now before stress becomes a problem you can’t handle.
