Your stress levels can also contribute toward some autoimmune illnesses or unhealthy TSH levels.


If you are stressed, you will be focusing on the wrong things, and rush from one place to the next, and more likely to suffer from an accident.

When we are stressed, we are preoccupied with our thoughts and cannot make the most out of our productivity. You need to find a way to unwind and take a step back from your life and the rat race. You might want to try to use a disposable CBD vape pen to help you focus and relax at night. If you need something a bit stronger, you may find cannabis to be a better fit, especially if you are finding it hard to quieten your mind. Cannabis and CBD are different as cannabis is stronger with the addition of THC, however, there are a a variety of strains at different strengths that you can try to help you.

When we are stressed, our thoughts just circulate around in our head, and it is hard to find clarity in our lives. No matter if you are looking to plan a holiday, complete an online course, or simply cook dinner, you will be struggling without focus. Take a few minutes off to meditate or go and see a hypnotherapist to find out what is keeping your mind occupied, so you can deal with the issues that you might not even be aware of. If you meditate, you will come across thoughts that are hidden in your subconscious mind. .

Our decision-making abilities are also negatively impacted by stress. Your judgment will be clouded by negative thoughts, and - unless you let go of them - you will find it hard to manage your projects or make informed decisions. You need to look at your situation realistically and ensure that you are able to listen to your gut feeling as well as the facts and expert advice, so you can live a life without regrets. Ending up with making the wrong decisions or just going with the flow is not going to help you get to where you want to be.  

There are plenty of negative aspects of stress, and you need to recognize the telltale signs of being exhausted and on the verge of burning out, before your mental or physical health would suffer.
