I AM STRESSED OUT
Being stressed out, I feel like screaming. My thoughts are overwhelming me. I do not know what to accomplish first. Being Stressed out is one of the worst feelings in the world. I know that when I get stressed out, it feels like nothing will get better. I even try to avoid my issues hoping that they will sort themselves out. Trust me, it is not going to happen. Only in your dreams. Here are 13 Truths About Being Stressed Out.
#1 STRESS CAN WREAK HAVOC ON YOUR BODY
Stress can lead to depression, and depression can lead to stress. Money problems as an example (because it’s the easiest example) does not just go away just because you wish it away. So, there you are stressing about making ends meet. Not knowing if you can. Which can then lead to depression. Or you are depressed, and let some of your financial ends slip through your grasp which causes stress. *sigh*
If this cycle goes on forever, feelings of hopelessness can take over. I am not saying that stress or depression is an easy thing. It can make or break you, but the choice is up to you. Truth.
I Stress About Stress Before There is Stress to Stress About

#6 STRESSED AND DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING ANYTHING
#8 WHEN YOU ARE STRESSED YOU GET SICK MORE
Remember how I said that stress can wreak havoc on your body? Well your immune system takes a hit the longer it is under stress. If your immune system is not up to par it is not going to be able to fight off those pesky germs like it used to. This can in turn cause you to be sick more.
#9 REACHING FOR COMFORT FOOD MORE OFTEN?
Stress can make you reach for comfort foods more than what your body actually needs. Your body needs fruits and vegetables, but it wants carbs/sugar/fat. When I am stressed I want cosmic brownies, Fire Hot Cheetos, lots of coffee because It makes me happy, content.
#10 DECREASED SEX DRIVE
#11 SORE MUSCLES
Tension builds in your muscles when you are stressed. You feel it the most in your shoulders and back. I recommend taking a hot bath with Epsom salt.
Now if you have someone that can give you a massage, ask them to give your muscles a little loving. If you can afford it go get pampered. You don’t have to go get an hour massage that cost $200. Go to your local nail salon, get a manicure or pedicure. Most manicures come with a hand massage, and pedicures foot massage.
# 12 EATING PROBLEMS
You either eat too much, or not enough. It feels like there is no in between. Make sure to try to eat 3 balanced meals a day with small snacks in between. Your body will love you for it!
#13 BEING STRESSED OUT DOES NOT LAST FOREVER
