THE BIG DEAL ABOUT STRESS
Many of us are aware through personal experience of what stress can do to our emotional health. It can contribute to the development of depression, anxiety, and irritability, which ultimately can affect our productivity, our relationships, and our overall wellbeing.
But there's more. Have you ever wondered what can stress actually do to the body? Here are just three of many risks that stress can be responsible for:
A WEAKENED IMMUNE SYSTEM
Chronic stress can contribute to inflammation within the body, which leads to damaged tissues. The body begins to try and minimize the inflammation, which ultimately causes the body to suppress the immune system.
Inflammation can also lead to a number of other complications, such as Diabetes, certain cancers and heart disease.
HEART ATTACK AND STROKE
Stress is responsible for increasing the body's heart rate and blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to a number of problems such as blood clots, damage to the blood vessels, chest pains, heart attack and stroke.
There are many potential causes to sleep deprivation, such as thyroid disorders, poor diet, hormonal imbalances, and commonly– stress. Stress can deprive us of the ability to wind down and relax – thus keeping us up at night.
Sleep deficiency is more serious than most people think. Of course, you will experience drowsiness throughout the day from not getting enough sleep, but prolonged sleep deprivation can also lead to more serious health concerns like depression, Diabetes and certain cancers.
Stress is common – but it shouldn't have to be. You have the ability to take control of your health today, NATURALLY. Think about how much stress is holding you back in life, and just imagine what life could be without it.
