We all suffer from stress at times in our lives and, we all have different ways of coping with stressful events that may occur. How we cope can have a huge impact on our emotional and physical health. Its  important for us to be aware of any signs of excessive build up of stress in the body.


Physical Signs

  • Headaches

  • Muscle tension or pain

  • Stomach problems

  • Sweating more than usual

  • Feeling dizzy

  • Bowel or bladder problems

  • Breathlessness

  • Dry Mouth

  • Sexual problems


If you have some of the above signs you may be experiencing stress. Studies have told us that the first step in tackling stress is to be aware that it is a problem for you.


The next step is to take back control of the causes and effects of the stress.
