Most people will admit to being stressed, without hesitation. However, there is a difference acute stress and chronic stress. Often our clients may find themselves annoyed, cranky and not in the mood for days and weeks at a time. While this may seem like a rough patch or those moments when we’re not getting along, the true culprit may be good old fashioned stress.

Lack of balance stress.
All the stress.
So, here are three ways that stress may affect your relationships, and why we’re hosting four events in April to help you deal.
The First Way: You Are Tired
Being tired is a given in life. At some, we are exhausted by our obligations, and sometimes even our opportunities. When we are stressed, being tired is not usually far behind. Our bodies are taxed by the elevated levels of hormones and the responses of our nervous system being on high alert. As such is the case, we may lack energy, and just want to lie down or goto sleep. Your partner may wonder what’s going on, even more than you do. If you’re constantly feeling burdened or just exhausted—like you just ran a half marathon, then it’s time to make some changes.
The goal is to turn off your fight or flight response with some rest and digest. Whatever has you stressed out is more than likely something that you cannot control. If that is the case, consider what you can do to relax and ground yourself.
Watch a hilarious movie?
Do something you enjoy? Yes, you’re stressed out about not having time, but imagine how much better you will feel once you laugh, stress or even cry.
