Are you worried you’re not relaxed enough?
Stress. Commitments. Responsibilities…
…Sometimes modern life has no chill.
And it’s incredibly easy to lose sight of when you’re not relaxed.
In fact, it’s so much easier to see stress in others than it is in yourself.
But that’s super dangerous:
Because if you’re not relaxed, you’re exposed to all the physical & mental perils of stress.
So in this guide, you’ll discover 9 warning signs that you’re not relaxed…
9 Warning Signs You’re Not Relaxed.
1. You’re Irritable.
Do you ever get irritable but you don’t know why?
Is your blood boiling over simple thing like slow Netflix loading times?
The more stressed you are, the more you’re likely to explode like a volcano of anger!
2. Low Libido.
It’s a little embarrassing but stress can seriously weaken your libido.
And when you’re stressed, your body produces less libido boosting hormones.
3. Hair Loss.
Ever combed your hair & and wondered if you’ll have anything left?!
Don’t order that terribly obvious wig just yet.
Because may just need to chill out…
Stress takes a HUGE toll on our bodies.
And hair loss is a way of your body warning you that you’re over-stressed.
4. Mood Swings.
Stress causes your hormones to yo-yo – because your body doesn’t know how to react.
…It’s like your body has pressed the panic button and your brain goes into chaos.
5. You're Not Enjoying Work.
Work is a huge part of our identity:
We feel attached to it. We’re extremely passionate about it. It can define who we are.
But it’s also a major cause of stress.
And if your thoughts are buzzing at a 100 miles an hour about work, then that’s a key sign that you might be exhausted.

6. Dramatic Weight Fluctuations.
The struggle is real:
Emotional eating is a BIG sign that you’re not relaxed.
For some, we eat too little. For others, we eat too much.
Being over-stressed will dramatically change your appetite – which then affects how you look & how much you weigh.

Anxiety has to be the world’s worst feeling!
And when you’re stressed, it’s going to take up a big portion of your time.
Racing thoughts. Heart palpitations. That impending feeling of doom.
These are all forms of anxiety that will signal you’re not relaxed.
If you’re constantly feeling like this, your stress is in overdrive.
9. Endlessly Finding Problems.
It’s incredibly to find problems in everything.
But that’s even more true when you’re not relaxed.
Stress is deceptively subtle.
You may not realise it but if you feel disappointed, upset or simply annoyed with almost everything you do, you’re probably way too stressed.
In a world where social media makes us feel like we need to be perfect, we’re constantly digging for new problems.
