Are you feeling stressed?

It seems everywhere I look, there is another article about how so many people feel stressed.

A survey in the Huffington Post, for example, showed that 91% of people felt stressed in March, and 77% felt stressed weekly or even more often.

The survey showed that most people were stressed about having too little sleep, too much work (or not enough), too little time and not enough money. Illness (worry about weight) and relationships were also common stresses.

We know that stress leads to health issues, from anxiety, fatigue, and headaches—to cancer, heart disease, and autoimmunity. So what can we do to stay healthy under stress?

The first step is to know if you’re stressed.

Here is a list of some of the ways patients describe to me that they are stressed:

  • Worry and anxiety about life, work, health, family
  • Find yourself searching the Internet (late at night) about your health
  • Getting less then 8 hours of sleep a night
  • Can’t turn your brain off
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Exhausted
  • Long lists of things to do
  • Stiff and achy all over
  • Catching colds or other infections, repeatedly
  • Feeling “not yourself”
  • Feeling emotional, weepy, volatile, irritable
  • Digestive distress, pain, bloating, and/or bowel changes
  • “I don’t know what to do, or where to begin”
  • “I have too much to do and too little time to do it”
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Lightheaded, near-fainting, and/or increased sweating
