Percent of people in the U.S. who feel they are living with extreme stress.

APPEARANCE CHANGES

Poor hygiene, dirty clothes, no grooming. If all of a sudden you have no interest in your appearance, it's a tell tale sign that you are stressed.

CRYING SPELLS

Crying over nothing at all, or crying about small things that normally wouldn't bother you may be signs of depression.

EATING TOO MUCH/LITTLE

In the short term, stress can shut down appetite. But if stress persists, it can cause the adrenal glands to release the hormone cortisol, which increases the appetite.

GAMBLING

Gambling is a way that some individuals self-medicate to reduce the effects of stress in their lives. This can be in form of gambling money or taking bad risks in your life.

IMPULSE BUYING

Habitual impulse buying can be a sign that you are unhappy. To get a short term "high" many people shop as a way to improve their mood.

NERVOUS HABITS

Nervous habits can include things nail biting, fidgeting, feet tapping, stuttering, pacing, jaw clenching, teeth grinding and more.

MISTAKE PRONE

Feeling clumsy lately? It's not a coincidence. Stress makes it harder to concentrate. Simple tasks become tougher.

OCD

It’s normal, on occasion, to go double-check if that iron is unplugged or your car is locked. But when obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors become so excessive they interfere with your daily life, there is maybe a more serious issue going on.

PROCRASTINATION

SELF MEDICATION

Using alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs to relax, especially in an excessive manner is a big sign of stress.
