    This is so true. When I was working at a stressful job, with an out of control boss and co-worker it was causing health issues. Lot of people were suffering under that environment and were so relieved when they either quit or were laid off.

    I used to come home and self medicate on chocolate chips (handfuls) and on a really bad day I would also have a cup of coffee, just to calm down. After being laid off, the stress subsided. Almost 4 years later and my graying hair has become darker again, the wrinkles are disappearing and the stomach pain is gone. If I had to stay another 6 months under the stress level, it would have probably put me in the hospital and maybe I would even be alive today. I was throwing up everyday that I worked. Sometimes we put up with horrible environments when we see no way out and it slowly kills us.

    Great infographic to describe what stress does to us.

      Hi Gemma, thanks so much for sharing :)

      I’m glad you found the infographic useful! ‘Stressed-out’ has become almost the default state for so many of us these days, but very few people realize the consequences until its too late.
