Do you feel as though you are not quite taking care of yourself as much as you should? Maybe you feel as though you need to make some changes but you just don’t know where to start. Either way, it’s more than possible for you to turn things around and it all starts with pinpointing whether or not you’re actually meeting your own basic needs.
You’re Sick- Constantly
If you feel as though you end up catching every cold, virus or even flu that goes around then your immune system may be compromised. You might find that you are not up to the task of fighting off the illness and this is the last thing that you want. Your immune system can be weakened by a huge number of factors as well, some of them include loneliness, an unhealthy diet, and a poor exercise regime. Unfortunately, a weak immune system really doesn’t just mean that you are going to catch every bug, it also means that you will take longer to recover as well.
You’re Constantly Tired
There are so many reasons why you might feel tired, constantly. If you have insomnia or if you have a schedule that does not allow you to have those crucial 8 hours a night then it’s probably no surprise that you are exhausted. If you feel as though you are getting enough sleep then you may have an underlying issue. It may be that you have a vitamin deficiency or even that you have anemia. Chronic exhaustion is a sign of depression as well, so do keep this in mind.
Your Skin Is Suffering
Another sign that you are not taking care of yourself as much as you should is if your skin is suffering. You may find that you end up having dry skin or you may find that you are just not able to get the smooth skin you once did. You might notice that you have far more wrinkles and that you are also unable to clear your acne breakouts. If you have visible veins then this is not a sign of stress but it is easy to fix varicose veins if you go to a professional.
You Just Don’t Feel Great
You might not have a fever and you might not feel sick enough to call into work either, but if you constantly feel as though you are battling a headache or even a stomach ache then this might be a sign that you have some kind of undiagnosed health condition. Your body might be begging you to take better care of it. Anxiety and stress are known for wreaking havoc on your body and if this is the case then you might want to speak with a professional to see if they can give you some help and advice. It may be that your issue can be fixed and if this is the case then you will be glad that you were able to get to the bottom of it before it consumed too much of your energy.
