Five Possible Effects of Stress ~ I think it is fairly inevitable, at one time or another, we will all experience stress in our lives. It could be health related, financial, job, or family, but I think it’s pretty safe to say, during our lifetime, none of us will entirely escape stress.
You may remember a year or so ago, we sold our home. We still haven’t found “the house” yet and in the meantime are renting a home. Well, we just found out a couple of days ago that the place we are renting sold…so we are on the move again. With that news, my stress level just went into overdrive!
Coincidently, April is National Stress Awareness month and to mark the occasion, I thought I would share some common signs of stress you may not be familiar with!
Five Possible Effects of Stress:
It can affect your hair growth —
Many factors can impact healthy hair including stress. If your hair could use some support, a nutritional supplement like Priorin can help improve hair growth. It has been shown to provide fuller, thicker and stronger hair in as early as 12 weeks, so you know you aren’t tossing your money away on a quick-fix product.
It can cause bathroom trouble —
It can make you breakout —
Skin conditions like acne, itchy skin or rashes can be related to an inflammatory response caused by stress. Your skin is an immediate stress perceiver, which basically means it’s on the frontlines of your battle with stress. Take time to pamper and care for your skin when you’re going through a stressful period. Try a DIY face mask for some low-cost luxurious pampering you can do at home.
It can increase your chances of a yeast infection—
Many women are prone to yeast infections when they’re experiencing stress or major life changes, like planning a wedding, losing a job or moving to a new home. Around 75 percent of women will experience it at least once in their lives, while many women may suffer from recurrent VYI’s. Luckily treatment for a yeast infection is readily available. Some treatments, like CanesOral Combi-Pak, are single-dose oral treatments that can be taken anytime and anywhere. The Combi-Pak also comes with an external cream for fast relief of external itching and burning.
It can literally make you sick —
If you often get colds and flu, your stress levels may be to blame. Your brain and immune system are in constant communication, which means that a psychological change can cause physical symptoms. Diet is an important factor in bolstering your immune system, so take extra care to get the vitamins and nutrients you need.
The bottom line is that occasional stress is a normal part of life, but given the effect it has on our body, making an effort to reduce stress is worth your time. Talk to your doctor about ways you can help manage your stress, like a change in diet, increased exercise and relaxation techniques.
