Alas, we humans are more prone to continual, long term stress that presents itself in a multitude of different ways.

Many of these signs of having too much stress in our lives we may not even attribute to stress and may overlook them as just other aliments plaguing our bodies. Let us take a look at 9 signals your body is using to relay messages to you that you are way too stressed out:

Your foot constantly taps when you are sitting down, you possess a constant need to get up and complete tasks instead of sit and relax, anxiety runs rampant through your mind and body, or the very idea of being still, for even a moment, fills you with a sort of dread. This lack of stillness in your life is a sign that stress has created an imbalance in your emotional state.

Intimate Desire Diminish

No one likes to admit that when they lack sexual urges. That intimacy just isn't an interest for them because they are way too tired to even have a response to the romantic partners. The more you are stressed, the more your libido will suffer as stress hormones affect these areas of the body. More stress equals less romantic desires.

Constant Body Aches and Pains

Maybe there are times when you wake up with a stiff neck and you think you just slept in the wrong position but the stiffness continues for longer than normal and gets painful. Your lower back has a consistent throb making it uneasy to sit still or even move around.

Do you notice more headaches, upset stomach or digestive tract issues? If you are overstressed, these maybe be signals your body is presenting to you to say, "slow down or there are going to be even more issues that may not be fixable!"

Your Monkey Mind Never Ceases

Stress can continue long after you have left the workplace or source of you stress. If you allow your mind to continuously mull over work issues, deadlines, family feuds or that one co-worker who seems to make your life harder at every turn, more stress is going to be actualized.

Ernest Holmes states, "Worry, crisis, and anxiety seem to plague most people, often to the extent that life is something to be suffered through rather than to be lived with joy.

This does not mean that we shall ever be free of problems, but rather that life and living present a continual challenge, which we should learn to master instead of allowing to master us."

By constantly letting the mind worry over things you can't change you give stress power over your mind and body.

Emotional Eating Causing Weight Issues

Most people turn to food in time of stress. Food signals comfort for most of us and when stressed, we search for that feeling of comfort and calm that food seems to provide us. Yet, if left unchecked and too much indulging happens we can cause more stress due to weight gain.

Not only emotional stress but physical stress due to more weight placed on our bone structures that are not accustomed to the extra weight. In turn, we can create symptoms such as pains and aches which were previously touched upon. Under eating may occur as well and in this case, under nourishes the body thus depriving it of nutrients and energy to thrive.

Nights of Unrest

It is said that sleep gets interrupted first, due to stress. Enter the monkey mind, which keeps you awake. Maybe uneasy dreams keep waking you up all throughout the night?

The inability to spend quality time in REM sleep has been scientifically proven to take away from us the refreshed feelings and benefits of a restful night of sleep. We still feel exhausted and craving more sleep, more rest.

Intolerance of Others

Stress can have a huge impact on our relationship with others and ourselves. If you are discovering that any little thing that isn't going your way is causing you to lose patience very, very easily, you may be experiencing an overload of stress in your body.

Taking on too much, trying to do it all on your own, and thinking that no one else can do this the way it needs to be done are great ways to build your stores of stress.

Ease up on yourself, delegate tasks to others, trust they can do it just fine and let yourself off the hook for everything having to be perfect. Practice just these 3 little ideas and it will be amazing the amount of stress and burden you will unload from your shoulders.

Hair Loss

Losing hair can be caused by stress either in a physical manner and/or a psychological manner. Have you ever gotten so stressed you wanted to pull your hair out?

Overstressing yourself can cause you to unknowingly pull your hair out or mess with eyelashes or eyebrows causing hair loss. Stress hormones from within the body can trigger hair to fall out in patches or cause the immune system to assault follicles thus causing hair to come out.

Rollercoaster Ride of Feelings

Your temper flares. You become Irritable, impatient, temperamental in one moment then in the next you are laughing, playful, joking around. Wait!

Someone said or did something that now has you exploding in anger and bringing tears to your eyes. You may not even be aware of how or why you are being so sensitive to the environment and people around you. Surprise, surprise, stress has affected you once more and taken control over your emotional states.

Daily stresses are, unfortunately, a normal part of human life. We do not have to let stress become destructive and ruin our lives though.

Becoming mindful of your body, listening, noticing the signs we spoke about above and aiding it by managing your stress while allowing healing to happen will bring about more physical and mental wellbeing which can prolong life expectancy, improve your interactions and relationship with others, while also providing a much needed sense of calm to each moment of Your Life.

Look into meditation, joining a spiritual support group, spending more time in nature or other ways of disconnecting and discovering your connection to your inner Self within. Take back your power that you have given to stress and find your happiness, from within, once more.
