10 Things You Might Be Experiencing Due To Stress

Published

on

Stress is something that occurs to every person at some point in their lives. It happens mainly when they’ve reached a breaking point in a certain area of their life which they are finding really difficult to deal with (such as the build up of exam and essay deadlines). Whatever it is, stress can become a problem which interrupts our daily life and it should not be ignored or taken lightly. 

In this blog post I’m going to give a personal description about some of the signs that I am currently experiencing during my own stressful times. I will discuss 10 points so please read on and see if any of them apply to you. (I will also be sharing how I cope with my stress in the next post so stay tuned for that). Hope you enjoy reading on 🙂

1) Under pressure 

I have noticed that when I have so much to do I tend to feel like the world is ending and my time will be over soon. Everything around me feels so chaotic and messed up. I feel so pressurized that it’s suffocating to be in the middle of all the incomplete work that needs to be done. It really feels like I’m in such a rush to get my life together but at the same time, time is running out, and I must hurry up fast before everything comes crashing down. I just feel that being under pressure fuels to my stress levels, and that stresses me out even more!

2) Poor diet

As much as I am health conscious and aware of the sort of food that I eat, my stress levels have the tendency to make me lose my appetite and eat less than I usually do. I’m so overwhelmed with everything that food isn’t even on my mind (because all that’s on my mind is the heavy work load stress). Some days I will eat perfectly fine, but during the days when I feel that my stress is bugging me to the core, I cannot eat properly. I will literally just eat a bowl of cereal and call it a wrap for the day. 

3) Mood swings

When I’m stressed out, my moods can be a bit of a roller coaster. I have a hard time being in a good mood consistently because there’s always something that reminds me that something is missing or is not finished. This automatically switches me off to the point where I literally just don’t feel like doing anything or talking about anything. I tend to get irritable and triggered easily. Sometimes I even find myself snapping at my family members for the smallest things, and they get impatient/annoyed/confused with me.  What’s worse is that they don’t know why I’m stressed out because I prefer not to burden them with what I’m going through, so the fact that they don’t know, and the fact that I have to constantly pretend as if I’m fine, alone messes with my moods even more. Ugh!

4) Lack of sleep/oversleeping

There are many nights where I have trouble falling asleep as soon as I place my head on my pillow. I just can’t seem to fall asleep easily because it’s the stressful thinking that keeps me up during the night hours. I stay up and think about everything. I think about what I’ve done. And what I haven’t done. My sleep routine is a complete mess. Some nights I fall asleep around 1am and wake up around 12pm, and other nights I fall sleep around 5am and wake up around 2pm. However, now and then, when I’m really really tired, I fall asleep around 12am and wake up around 9am. Basically, my sleeping pattern is a wreck! It’s all over the place!

5) Becoming distant from social activities

I get so stressed out that I avoid anything to do with people in general. I isolate myself from literally everyone, and that includes my family too. I rarely go out in front of them or spend as much time as I should. The thing is that I just don’t like the idea of facing anyone while I’m going through stressful times in fear that they will judge me from the stress/frustration that can blatantly be seen on my face. Haha yes, seriously, it’s always obvious when I’m not feeling good about myself. My family sometimes picks it out and observes me. And so I avoid facing them as much as I can while I figure out how I can handle everything. I really just to keep myself to myself. I don’t like the idea of anyone catching troubled/disturbed/stressed out vibes from me, so I can get quite distant even though I wholeheartedly don’t mean to.

6) Problems concentrating/staying focused

One thing that bothers me when I’m overly stressed is the inability to concentrate on a task for a long period of time without getting distracted by my phone or simply talking myself out of it with thoughts like “I can do it tomorrow” or “I just need a break, maybe later” – not very wise of me, but this alone delays my progress and ends up making me feel like more of a stressed out piece of sh*t. It’s honestly frustrating, I cannot seem to stay focused in the way that I wish I could. Damn it!!!

7) Restlessness/tiredness

It gets exhausting when I have to wake up everyday and be reminded of how much I’m lacking in my life. The same old routine, waking up and thinking: “I need to focus on creating 50 more posts”, “need to keep up with my pinterest stats”, “I need to make my website look perfect”, “I need to find a way”, “I have to do this before I wreck everything up”, “I feel so behind in life”, “I have to start working on more content and get my work out there”, “I need to exercise and work out too!”, “I gotta figure out a way now”, “omg I need to post on twitter”, “I don’t wanna dismiss instagram, I really wanna catch up with my feed”, “I don’t know what to eat”… and so on… but you get the idea. All of it just gets tiring, sometimes I feel like giving up, and most of the times I don’t get the rest that I crave. 

8) Doubting myself

For someone who has a lot of potential/ability, I do doubt myself. I own up to that. I’m no different from anyone else, there are times when I just believe that I can’t do it. I get weak. I stumble. I have all these incomplete projects and plans that just…make me not want to do them anymore because “I don’t think I can” or “I think I should be doing something much easier”. I have these moments a lot, especially during the really really stressful times. Self-doubt messes with my confidence too. It gets annoying.

9) Worried about my health

What’s more stressful than being stressed about anything at all? Well, for more, it’s my health. My concern for staying healthy is big. I often worry about how I might end up if I don’t handle my stress well. I even start googling symptoms for the most minor things that I notice different about myself such as a little headache or belly ache or even a tiny paper cut. I can’t help but think that I’m going to die haha! 

10) Low energy

Finally, on some days I noticed that I have almost no energy to do much. I simply don’t feel energetic enough to handle my tasks or stay focused. I get my laptop out, sit on the edge of my bed until “I can’t be bothered to do this anymore, so I’ll just lay down here and stare at the wall for 30 minutes or something”. Or I could be sitting on my bedroom floor with all my paper, books and pens out until I, without realizing, shut down and end up napping for an hour or two. Yup, that’s how much of an effect all this stress has on me. I yawn and I just get really tired. 

And that’s that. I really hope you enjoyed reading my personal stressful experiences and thoughts. Do you think you can relate to any of them? If so, then please let me know in the comments section. I would love to read what you have to say. 🙂

Also, may I add that in my next blog post I will be sharing information on how I handle my stress based on all the 10 points that I discussed in this post (don’t miss out on it, stay tuned!)
