What is Your Body Trying to Tell You? And more importantly, are you listening?
Every moment of our day is becoming increasingly occupied, there is always something to watch, read or download and it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle. But as we put more and more energy in our external environment, we can sometimes lose touch with what’s going on internally.
Although you may not be fully aware of it, your body is constantly sending you messages and telling you how it’s feeling. If you are experiencing high stress, your body is likely feeling strain and communicating this to you, whether it’s physically, mentally or emotionally.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it may be a signal that your body is overstressed and not coping:
