4. YOU CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT WORK OR PROBLEMS.

If you constantly think about work, finances, and other challenges without being able to unwind and relax, stress has a hold of your life. Mark Twain said, “Worrying is like paying a debt you don’t owe.” You cannot find a solution until you detach from the problem. Worrying can only escalate to cause psychological and physical problems. If you are constantly checking your phone, emails, and other forms of communication from work, it is time to really face what’s important in your life.

5. YOU CAN’T SIT STILL.

The inability to sit still is a sure sign of being overstressed. Anxiety and stress can make you uncomfortable with your own thoughts and your mind can be your worst enemy. If you can’t go for a walk, sit in contemplation, do gentle stretching exercises or just be with your own thoughts, there is a chance you are overly stressed. Find a way to manage your anxiety and fears and face what’s really troubling you. Avoiding the problem can only make it worse and soon you’ll be facing a much bigger one.

6. YOU HAVE LITTLE PATIENCE WITH OTHERS.

Stress can make you impatient and intolerant, making you snappy and irritated pretty quickly, even towards the ones closest to you. However, it’s not their fault that you’ve taken on too much and they should become your exhaust. If you snap on the smallest things and get angry for no reason you’re probably dealing with too much stress and you should find a way to slow down and relax.
