You feel physically and emotionally tired all the time.
If you're always early for work and the last one to leave, you'll eventually feel burned out, and it's only going to get worse. When you're physically and emotionally stressed, you'll be more irritable, overwhelmed, and frustrated. Always remember to take frequent breaks throughout the day, so that you won't feel too drained in the afternoon.
You can't focus.
According to David Ballard, PsyD, from The American Psychological Association, our brains are only designed to handle stress in short bursts before returning to normal, so "when stress becomes chronic, this narrow focus continues for a long time and we have difficulty paying attention to other things."
You get sick all the time.
If you don’t take care of yourself even if you’re working 9 to 5 (plus overtime!), you’ll eventually get sick. Remember, your body needs to rest and recover from its daily activities. You won’t be able to perform well if you’re stuck in between the sheets the whole day.
