Mental Effects of Stress

Mental effects

Put emotional or physical effects together and you will end up eventually with mental effects. The mental effects are part and parcel with the other effects and will ultimately lead to behavioural effects.

So as we have seen the stress does manifest in many ways and can hit you at any time. Here are a list of the mental symptoms and effects.

Poor concentration

Poor decision making

Mental fatigue

Inconsistent communication

Excessive self-criticism

More ego centred, less group centred

Poor memory and recall

Inability to asses work and decisions

Short burst of energy instead of a steady effort

Loss of mental agility

Poor time management

Inability to listen

Wavering attention span.

With the above we all suffer now and again, mainly due to things like, quick changeover, lack of sleep, and worry about something or anything that may crop up. It is a vicious circle that needs resolving. How we deal with them will decide how it affects us. Normally sleep, a couple of days off or resolution of the problem stops the circle that eventually leads to burnout.
