Stress from an overloaded schedule might make you want to scream sometimes, but it's affecting you in lots of ways beyond turning you into a human teakettle. For example, stress can cause you to experience headaches, backaches, chest pains, stomach complaints, sleep problems, heart palpitations, weight gain and hair loss. Plus, apart from irritability and anger, if you're stressed, you're more likely to feel anxious, depressed, worried and restless. You might lose focus and become forgetful -- which of course doesn't help when you're trying to strike things off your to-do list.
So if enough of these symptoms sound familiar, you should make an effort to return to the regular load you managed like a champ and enjoy a little relaxation on customary basis.
