Show Stress the Door: Skin Renewal’s Healthy Guide to Chronic Stress
What’s the difference between a really bad day and zero-break from constantly feeling pressured and overwhelmed? A really bad day – one that’s stressful – may look like you forgot to pack school lunches, your laptop died mid-presentation and to top it off, your au pair cancelled. Five minutes before pick up. Deep breathes. The next day? Things got back on track and so did your mood. Chronic stress is trickier, and harder to manage. That’s the one where you’re feeling stressed to the point of anxious and there’s no let up. And it’s manifesting through your body and turning into health issues. If you’re suffering from sleep deprivation or insomnia thanks to chronic stress, know that things are spiraling. And it’s time for an easy yet effective management plan.
Doctor’s Diagnosis: Chronic Stress VS. Feeling Stressed
We all feel stress and feel stressed out. Filled up with petrol lately? It’s enough to make you feel instantly nauseous. However chronic stress feels heavy every day, as if there’s no escape. It puts pressure on your system and can lead to other pressure-related diseases. And that’s the key difference – and where a doctor’s diagnosis is crucial. Because if a chronic stress condition means you could then battle with high blood pressure or depression, you will need ongoing health support. Think of it this way: stress affects us all. But not all of us experience stress that turns into an emotional health challenge. That’s where needing a well-deserved self-care day versus seeing a skilled doctor is the contrast. Skin Renewal understands the delicate balance and will help you identify what’s going on. A blood diagnostic analysis to uncover the root cause of the issue may be the first step.

It’s job is not only to lower the body’s stress levels but also help you with your energy levels. And what’s more, it promotes better brainpower and focus. Like the sound of that? A clearer mental state is essential when the going gets tough.
