Why you Stressin'?

Stress is your body's natural reaction to a challenge or demand. Your body reacts to stress by releasing hormones, which make your brain more alert, cause your muscles to tense, and increase your pulse. \

In the short term, these reactions are good because they can help you handle the situation causing stress. This is your body's way of protecting itself. There are two main types of stress:

Acute stress.

This is short-term stress that goes away quickly. You feel it when you slam on the brakes, have a fight with your partner, or ski down a steep slope. It helps you manage dangerous situations. It also occurs when you do something new or exciting. All people have acute stress at one time or another.

Chronic stress.

This is stress that lasts for a longer period of time. You may have chronic stress if you have money problems, an unhappy marriage or partnership, or trouble at work. Any type of stress that goes on for weeks or months is chronic stress. after a while we become so used to chronic stress that you don't realize it is a problem, which is why so many people become sick or ill during this time.

Over time chronic stress puts you at risk for health problems, including:

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart disease

  • Diabetes

  • Obesity

  • Depression or anxiety

  • Skin problems, such as acne or eczema

  • Menstrual complications

The worse thing you could do is let the stress build up over time. As you can see, this leads to all kinds of trouble that mainstream medicine would just like for you to throw a pill at! NOT A CHANCE! Face that thing head first and conquer! It doesn’t take much to maintain a stress free life, we just have to adjust to making the time for ourselves. In order to reverse the illnesses associated with stress, we must be dedicated to a comprehensive Stress Management program. <——————
