You’ve heard that excess stress can cause health problems, but are you heeding the warnings? It’s so easy to get caught up in the raging river of life that many of us don’t even realize we barely have time to sit down and do nothing for a few minutes.
Part of the problem is our inability to recognize when we’re overstressed, so if you’re ready to take a good hard look at yourself and your habits, look out for these — the top 15 signs that you’re majorly overstressed:

Naturally, when there’s something in your life that’s worrying or troubling you and you’re stressed about it, you’re preoccupied. You may feel anger, sadness, frustration, or guilt, and these feelings keep you from focusing and concentrating on anything else.
This means that work, school, your loved ones and friends, your self-care, and other important things go by the wayside. Noticing this is often a sure-fire sign that excess stress is at play.
