As the saying goes, if you don’t make time to be well, your body will be sure you take the time to be sick. Chronic stress can lead to burnout, even if you don’t necessarily feel stressed out.

Stress can be a crucial part of human survival. Moderate stress boosts your brain’s performance, helps protect against illness, and rushes blood to vital organs in flight-or-fight situations. When stress becomes chronic, however, various issues may arise.
Dr. Patrick K. Porter, founder of BrainTap, says, “Excess stress doesn’t always show up as the feeling of being stressed. Stress often goes directly to the body and may only be recognized by the symptoms it creates, such as headaches, depression, anxiety or disease.”
