Although everyone encounters stress in their lives, too much stress can have a negative impact on our physical and mental well-being.
Some common stress signals include:
- Feelings of anxiety, moodiness or irritability
- Sleep disturbances, headaches, fatigue and teeth grinding
- Increased/decreased appetite, increased alcohol and drug intake
- Thoughts of failure, difficulty focussing or making decisions
Being aware of such signals and implementing a proper stress management program will help control such emotions and behaviours before they become overwhelming.
At Think Psychological Services we are trained to counsel patients facing stress management issues. The individuals who seek help from us are diverse, ranging from a child entering early adolescence to an expatriate family who finds adjusting to life in Singapore extremely stressful.
