Serial Killer Stress
We all have faced stress at some point, for some, on a regular basis. Toxic work culture, financial burden, a bad breakup, or losing a loved one. Yet, no medicines are taken and we sleep, wake up, and continue the next day as if it doesn't exist. But stress is eating you away, as slowly and silently as possible.
If you are suffering from the symptoms of Binge Eating, Excessive Drinking or Smoking, getting irritated over small issues, too much work pending, feeling depressed and angry at everyone, sleep-deprived, or unable to concentrate then YOU MAY BE A VICTIM OF STRESS!!!
