Emotional symptoms of stress can include anxiousness, depressive states, unstable mood, extreme anger, irrational fears, repetitive negative behaviors, forgetfulness, difficulty concentrating, hyperactivity, heightened problems in relationships, feelings of irritability, restlessness, obsessing over things, crying a lot, and nightmares.
Cumulative effects of stress
The effects of stress over a long period of time unfortunately show up in not only how you feel but also how you treat the people around you. Long-term stress can affect how you perform in school, work, and personal relationships, and how you function in your family. When your normal is being in a stressful state, it’s almost as if you forget how to relax and be happy. Most people in high achievement-focused cultures live this way and don’t even realize it.
Chronic stress ultimately changes the chemicals in the brain which modulate cognition and mood. High, prolonged levels of cortisol (stress hormone) have been associated with mood disorders, depressive states, and anxiousness.
The biological state of balance is homeostasis. A balanced nervous system requires continuous maintenance. Some of the ways to balance the nervous system are… connecting with people around you, volunteering in the community, getting out in nature, hobbies, energy healing, mindfulness and exercising.
