Stress is how your body reacts to a challenging or demanding situation. Stress makes you physically and emotionally tense and may be triggered by a thought or event.
In short bursts, stress is beneficial. During a stressful situation, your body releases hormones that improve your senses and reaction time, helping you survive a “fight or flight” situation.
Unfortunately, if you always feel stressed — chronic stress — your stress hormones remain elevated, leading to health problems like high blood pressure and weight gain.
With fatigue, you feel physically and mentally tired all the time, even after a full night of rest.
Fatigue makes it hard to go about your daily routine, affecting your work and home life. It can also make performing any physical activity feel impossible.
Fatigue may develop from any number of causes, including an illness or stress.
Stress and fatigue affect your physical, emotional, and mental health. Chronic stress may cause fatigue and lead to other health problems such as headaches, digestion problems, and anxiety, in addition to high blood pressure.
Stress and fatigue may also affect your weight. You may turn to food as a coping mechanism for managing stress. Additionally, fatigue may trigger your appetite when you’re searching for a way to shake your chronic exhaustion.
When using food to cope with stress or fatigue, you may find yourself making poor food choices and overeating.
Stress, fatigue, and weight gain take a toll on your overall health and well-being.
