7 Surprising Signs You're Way Too Stressed

Sore, Bleeding Gums

Tension weakens your immune system, which can allow bacteria in the mouth to gain more of a foothold and eventually cause gum irritation and inflammation, explains Kimberly A. Harms, DDS, consumer advisor for the American Dental Association.

Nix It: Now is not the time to slack off on the brushing twice a day and flossing once, so be sure you do both. For extra protection, use a bacteria-killing mouth rinse to reduce bacteria levels in your mouth. To boost immune function, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, eat a balanced, healthy diet, and take a multivitamin. If you're under prolonged stress and your gums are bleeding often, consider seeing your dentist three or four times yearly for a cleaning and checkup instead of just biannually.

I want to not feel as though people are judging me for all the wrong reasons when I leave the house. I want to be able to leave the house on my own without all the anxiety that I have now. I want to one day be able to go on rides at amusement parks with the kids we will have one day. I want to go to an amusement park and not have to worry about if I'll fit or not http://thedietsolutionprogram.site88.net/
