The Side Effects Of Stress (And How A Vacation Can Fix It!)

While some stress is necessary to light a fire under your ambition, far too many people are chronically stressed. Between work, kids, and countless other obligations, you might be feeling worse than overwhelmed. 

Here are some ways too much stress can adversely affect your health, both physically and mentally.

Stomach aches

Too much stress can have disastrous effects on your digestive tract, whether you're eating healthy or not.

When you're stressed, you might be experiencing frequent bouts of stomach cramping or pain, even if you've never experienced these symptoms before. Stress can also cause diarrhea, constipation, and nausea in some people, while others might just get cramps. If you notice your stomach is acting up, it might be because you're stressed. 


You barked at your spouse and hurt their feelings; you can't control your road rage; the littlest thing seems to push you over the edge. If you're overreacting to your environment, you might be feeling irritable because of stress, even if you aren't upset. 

Irritability is frustrating since it might also affect those around you. If you notice yourself acting out in strange ways, take a few moments to calm down. Or better, yet go on vacation in a beautiful cabin rental

Lowered libido

Stress works in mysterious ways. With a huge deadline at the end of the week, you might forgo sex with your partner once or twice. But a frequently stressful job can make your libido virtually nonexistent. Not only does this stress you out further, but it can also put additional strain on the relationship if sex is something you both value.
