Your brain feels fuzzy
Stress can make you mentally sick, too. Too much of the stress hormone cortisol can make it harder to focus or concentrate, causing memory problems as well as anxiety or depression, says Dr. Levine.
WHAT TO DO: Relax until you regain your focus. Practice closing your eyes and breathing in and out slowly, concentrating only on your breath.
Your hair is falling out
Losing a few strands of hair is normal (old hair follicles are replaced by new ones over time), but stress can disrupt that cycle. Significant stress pushes a large number of hair follicles into what’s called a resting phase, and then a few months later those hairs fall out, according to MayoClinic.org. Stress can also cause the body’s immune system to attack your hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.
WHAT TO DO: Be patient. Once your stress level returns to normal, your hair should start growing back. Next up, learn the 34 tricks to reduce work stress every day.
