It is perfectly normal to experience periods of stress or to feel anxious about upcoming events. Your body’s response is to releases stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to help you get through the challenge.

- A feeling of constant worry
- Difficulty concentrating
- A noticeable change in your mood
- Finding it harder to sleep at night
- Body aches, including muscle tension and headaches
- A low sex drive
