Effects of Stress On Your Relationship, Hair, and Body

Stress can have many effects on a person. It can affect the health of your body, hair, and mood in various ways. You may not notice some of the effects of stress until later after the situation may have already been resolved, but the effects of that stress could have already manifested themselves in your body, hair, and relationship.

Make sure to take the time to rest and learn coping skills that will help you through stressful times in your life. You don't want those stressful situations to start to affect your relationship, family, or job in a negative way. 

Chronic stress can also negatively impact sperm production and maturation, causing difficulties in couples who are trying to conceive. Researchers have found that men who experienced two or more stressful life events in the past year had a lower percentage of sperm motility (ability to swim) and a lower percentage of sperm of normal morphology (size and shape), compared with men who did not experience any stressful life events.

The Effects Of Stress On The Hair

Have you ever noticed your hair shedding more than normal? As you prep your hair for a delightful day, you notice excessive amounts of hair in the comb and on the bathroom sink. You wonder what's going on and began to panic. Hair loss can be caused by a number of factors.

One of them is stress. It can cause the hair to break in enormous amounts. Hair loss caused by stress can be from the pressure that occurred months before the hair loss began. 

You may not be worried about anything right now but think back. Did you go through a financial problem, a divorce, death, or any other stressful situation?

If so, that may be the cause of your hair loss. Stress can make an enormous amount of hair follicles go into a resting phase earlier than normal. That stage is called Telogen effluvium.

Stress Effects On The Body

Stress does not only affect the hair, but it also can cause the body to be tired and worn out. You don't feel like doing anything. You are just worn out. As tension builds up, you are aggravated, which puts more stress on you. 

It can cause many unwanted things in a person's life; therefore, it is advised to take some time to relax and enjoy life. Try taking a beach vacation and enjoy some fun exercise and a healthy lifestyle. It may just be what you needed to relieve some of the tension.

Stress can cause:

  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Muscles Tension
  • Chest Pain

According to Healthline,
"Under stress, your liver produces extra blood sugar (glucose) to give you a boost of energy. If you’re under chronic stress, your body may not be able to keep up with this extra glucose surge. Chronic stress may increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes."

Acute Stress

Short-term stress can cause your heartbeat to increase at a rapid speed. Adrenaline acts as a messenger to increases the heart rate. It increases the amount of blood and elevates blood pressure.

You become anxious and go into fight or flight mode. According to Dr. Neil - MD,
The "fight or flight response" is our body's primitive, automatic, inborn response that prepares the body to "fight" or "flee" from perceived attack, harm or threat to our survival.

Things that cause short term stress are:

  • the pressures of  a business meeting
  •  trying not to be late for school or work 
  • avoiding an accident
