You’re Experiencing Chronic Stress

Not only can this kind of chronic stress put you at risk of developing burnout and take its toll on your mental health, but it can also affect your physical health, too.

  • Lack of focus: things are foggy, and it’s harder to finish an activity
  • Changes in memory: you have a more challenging time remembering things that happened throughout the day
  • Fatigue in mind and body
  • Reacting more emotionally than usual
  • Neglecting basic needs like showering, exercising or eating a well-cooked meal
