What are the signs of stress? You probably already have a
personal stress gauge and know your own symptoms of
stress. Stress is extremely personal and so is your reaction
to stressful scenarios, that's why the signs and symptoms of
stress tend to vary from person to person.
For instance, one of the first things that happens when the
body undergoes stress is blood is diverted away from your
digestive tract to your large muscles causing the stomach
and intestines to empty their contents preparing the body for
quick action. It's referred to as the fight or flight syndrome.
When the body reaches to that level of stress, anxiety or
nervousness; some people also experience stomach cramps,
nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.

Yes, everything you experience has the potential to induce stress in your life. What
is more important is how you cope with stress. Think about how you personally
deal with your signs of stress right now. Do you tense up? Does your chest heat
up and feel full of anxiety? Does your stomach do a dance? Your response to your
signs of stress is the thing you need to control.
Stress triggers will always be around, so make a mental note about how you feel
when you’re relaxed and free of any signs of stress. Remember that feeling and
use that feeling as your point of reference. When you feel your signs of stress
building up, you want to be able to bring your emotions back to the awareness of
how your body feels when you are relaxed and stress-free.
You also want to stop your stress before your stress symptoms negatively impact
you. One of the easiest ways to control stress is to purposely take time to focus on

may get headaches, backaches or stress knots in your neck or shoulders. For

in your chest as your stress levels and signs of stress rise.
What can you do about a sensation of heat rising in your chest area when you are
feeling stressed? Put something cold on the center of your chest to reduce the
sensation of heat. Even if the heat in your chest is the beginning of a panic attack,
you can greatly reduce the impact of this symptom of stress by stopping the
sensation of heat from building up in your chest. Put a cold cloth or a cold object
on the affected area and stop that symptom of stress in its tracks.
You can also do two or three repetitions of breathing exercises to prevent the
stress from building up. Breathe in deeply and slowly through your noise to the
count of five, and breathe out slowly through your mouth to the count of six. Don't
let stress build. Stop stress the moment you notice your signs of stress are on the
