Listen — I have so much stress that I’m stressed about the potential stressors. Between work, raising kids, dealing with separation, and all the other junk I worry about on the regular, it’s safe to say I’ve become a stress-beating ninja over the last couple years.

And hey! April is National Stress Awareness month, so I’m happy to be sharing some common signs of stress you may have never heard of…

Stress Can Affect Your Mane

Seriously. Losing hair? Before freaking out, consider stress levels. Healthy hair is affected by stress. If your hair could use some support, a nutritional supplement like Priorin can help improve hair growth. I’ve taken it for ages, and I find that it provides fuller, thicker and stronger hair (in as early as 12 weeks), so you know you aren’t tossing your money away on a quick-fix product.

Trust Your Gut

Both constipation and diarrhea are common signifiers of stress, but just because it’s common doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do about it. Drinking lots of water and eating high fiber foods are good first steps.[i] If you’re experiencing occasional constipation, a mild laxative can help get your body back to its normal rhythm. RestoraLAX is an osmotic laxative that works with water to help soften stools and increase the frequency of bowel movements. Check out this summary chart to find out which laxative is right for you.

Stress Sits on the Skin

Skin conditions like acne, itchy skin or rashes can be related to an inflammatory response caused by stress. [ii] Your skin is an immediate stress perceiver, which basically means it’s on the frontlines of your battle with stress. Take time to pamper and care for your skin when you’re going through a stressful period. Try a DIY face mask for some low-cost luxurious pampering you can do at home.

Stress is the Yeast of Your Problems

Many women are prone to yeast infections when they’re experiencing stress or major life changes, like planning a wedding, losing a job or moving to a new home. [iii] Around 75 per cent of women will experience it at least once in their lives, while many women may suffer from recurrent VYI’s. [iv] Luckily treatment for a yeast infection is readily available. Some treatments, like CanesOral Combi-Pak, are single-dose oral treatments that can be taken anytime and anywhere. The Combi-Pak also comes with an external cream for fast relief of external itching and burning.

Stress Can Literally Make You Sick

If you often get colds and flus, your stress levels may be to blame. Your brain and immune system are in constant communication, which means that a psychological change can cause physical symptoms. [v] Diet is an important factor in bolstering your immune system, so take extra care to get the vitamins and nutrients you need.

The bottom line is that occasional stress is a normal part of life, but given the effect it has on our body, making an effort to reduce stress is worth your time. Talk to your doctor about ways you can help manage your stress, like a change in diet, increased exercise and relaxation techniques.
