When you’re stressed, you feel changes in your body and your mind. Your heart beats faster, your blood pressure may go up, and your face may get flushed. Your muscles may tighten up, you feel anxious, and in most cases your nervous system causing poor cognition. You may feel rushed and confused, or forget things and you may feel sick to your stomach. You might also be irritable, and get into arguments with your family and friends. Chronic stress is known to accelerate premature aging, increase your anxiety level and change your behavior by affecting your overall mood. Premature aging occurs when the stress levels affect the DNA telomeres. Aging prematurely can increase an individual's stress level of anxiety, make a person withdrawal and display dissociative and isolating behavior.
