Mental Effects of Stress

Mental effects of stress can manifest in many ways unless recognized and rectified in the proper manner.

Stress can arise due to various conflicts at work and home. Stress and the resultant conflict varies from person to person. If not managed correctly, these can lead to impaired logical thinking and various mental illnesses.

Most of the time, realizing  the source of stress and changing the perception towards the situation is enough to successfully rectify the mental effects of stress. It is well known that unresolved emotional stress can translate into mental miseries and then into physical illnesses (known as psychosomatic illnesses).

To effectively deal with the stress induced psychosomatic illnesses, two pronged attack on both the emotional and physical issues is called for.

Other common mental effects of stress are:

  • Inability to concentrate

  • Difficulty with coming to decisions

  • Loss of self-confidence

  • Irritability or frequent anger

  • Insatiable cravings

  • Unnecessary worry, uneasiness and anxiety

  • Irrational fear

  • Panic attacks

  • Compelling emotions and mood swings

Uncontrolled mental stress can also induce people to become alcoholic addicts, show signs of bulimia or anorexia, lead to drug and nicotine dependency etc.
