Stress can affect both your mind and body. As noted in articles in the Harvard Medical Journal and the Mayo Clinic, living with chronic stress can cause many physical maladies including:
- High blood pressure
- Heart attacks
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Weight gain
- Memory problems
- Impaired decision making
- Fertility problems
Stress can also affect libido and your emotional well being. Stress can affect your immune system and the blood cells that help you fight off infection, so you’re more likely to get colds, viruses, the flu and other diseases.
Many times, stress causes decreased productivity in the workplace. Stress can create dependency on antidepressants and tranquilizers as well as drug addiction, nicotine and alcoholism.
