Putting on a brave face is something many of us committed to right now, trying to hold it together in support of others or for ourselves.
But ignoring stress does not make it go away, and internalizing stressors can negatively impact your physical well-being. And if left unchecked, internalized stress can lead to more severe health issues.
Signs of unresolved internalized stress include headaches, back pain, stomach/GI issues, chest tightness, and sleep disturbances.
If this sounds familiar to you, it may be time to find more adaptive and healthy ways to deal with stress.
Changing your response can relieve the toll on mind & body and elevate your quality of life.
Prioritize your wellness, and live the life you deserve.
