Have you ever wondered what causes that twitch in your eyelid? It's probably stress. Thats one telltale symptom that you need to get a handle on your stress levels. Here are some more hidden signs that you are stressed out:
Dry Mouth: It's common to load up on stimulants like coffee when we're stressed, which leads to dehyration.
Lack of Productivity: If you can't focus on the task at hand and find yourself worrying about other things that need to be done, productivity plummets.
Cuts and Bruises: When we are stressed out, the body releases endorphins which lessen pain. Therefore, cuts and bruises may appear and you don't even know from where they came.
Itchy Skin and Rashes: A lot of common skin conditions like eczema become worse under stress. That's why our skin often improves on vacation.
Cravings: When we're stressed we crave comfort foods and carbohydrates because the body needs that extra boost of serotonin.
Sore Mouths: Canker sores, cold sores, or a swollen mouth is often your body saying it needs a break from the overstimulation that it's currently experiencing.
