I don’t know about you guys, but I am not the best at handling stress. And I have anxiety, which means when I get stressed, I get really anxious. It’s a vicious cycle. I try to not get overwhelmed by stress, but sometimes you can’t really control it. Sometimes you don’t even know you’re stressed until you’re too stressed.
I have a lot of tactics that I use to deal with my stress from doing yoga to breathing exercises to taking walks if I’m feeling overwhelmed. How do you know if you’re actually stressed though? Here are 10 ways to tell.
You’re having trouble sleeping because you’re thinking about all the things you need to do.
Your sleeping patterns are all screwed up because you either can’t sleep or you’re staying up to finish things.
Even when you don’t have anything to do, you feel like you do.
The idea of another assignment or project makes you feel like you’re going to throw up.
But you can’t seem to say no to taking on anything else.
Simple tasks or chores are making you freak out.
You don’t even want to commit to hanging out with your friends because you feel like you have too much going on.
You find yourself mixing up assignments because you can’t think straight.
You don’t even know if you retained any info from class because you were so stressed about taking all the notes.
You don’t know what relaxing means anymore.
