    Default How do you know you are stressed?

    How does stress manifest in you? Anxiousness? drink? overeat? bite your nails? grind your teeth?



    How do you deal with it? meditate? deep breathing? run? What you wish life was like?

    When I'm stressed, my muscles tend to tense up and I don't think as quickly or as clearly.

    I deal with stress by getting enough rest, deep breathing, healthy eating, and exercise.

    It manifests in a lot of ways with me. Mostly I just get tired and neglect my physical needs. Perhaps a little withdrawn. Perhaps a little whiny. (By perhaps a little whiny, I mean definitely a lot whiny.)

    The best thing I can do is to restore my physical nutrition, sleep, and exercise needs and maintain a normal routine, and actually minimizing social contact helps too because I tend to neglect duties and to try to escape, I start to overly socialize and mess up my body by drinking and smoking. I have to try to balance everything out more in a stressful state.

    When people annoy to me to end, feel like I want to punch people out/chew people out, become overly critical, become emotionally involved (typically I am fairly detached), talk excessively, , curse a lot, body gets tense, get anxious, get extra bossy, very avoidant. ENFJ on steroids, pretty much.

    I go into my own little world, detach/zone out, sleep, eat less, avoid people or do a fun activity with a random person, engage my senses

    Stress by stuff I have to get done for example often makes me hot tempered (if that is the right word), kinda in contrast to my rather calm nature, and I get more easily irritable. It can also make me temporarily more energic though, so that I get more stuff done.

    Stress as in, being drained when around people and not enjoying it too much, makes me on the other hand tired and without energy.

    Don't know how to describe it better. What is common though when I have stress in all situations is that I neglect eating more and want to be left alone usually.

    Interesting. I think deadlines stress me out. I tend to overeat. Although, now that I have recognized that as a symptom, its a lot better now.

    What shortandsweet said about physical activity...I found out that I need to be going to the gym (or atleast running) regularly to keep a free and unstressed mind.

    I get quiet.....its weird. More confused, less intolerant.

    The less stressed I am the louder and more bold/offensive I tend to become.

    Which is why people tend to like me more when I am in a bad stage of life, and less when I am actually happy....

    Now THAT fucks with the mind.

    It depends...if I'm overwhelmingly stressed I tend to just get really sleepy and pass out, or have a mental breakdown, then pass out. That has happened three times this week.

    I am really stressed right now, and I basically just get really depressed and re-assess what I'm doing with my life, and what I really want out of it, and then I realize I want nothing out of life and I'm apathetic about everything, and it just goes down a terrible spiral of terrible thoughts.

    If I'm just stressed, then I'm usually at my best, I would think. I'm happy and outgoing, but also I'm more attentive to get stuff done.

    i know that im stressed when i feel stress. i try to get rid of it by doing whats needed to the source of stress, to make it less stressful, like just trying to make the source of stress less important to me, or if there is nothing i can do to it, i try to concentrate on other things
