How Stress Affects The Body and Mind
Did you know that a lifestyle of stress affects the mind and body?
Stress is the body's reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response -- changing jobs, moving to a new house, loosing a parent, getting married, having a child. Stress is a normal part of life; however, living under pressure can weaken our immune systems and make us susceptible to illness and disease.
Our bodies react to these changes with physical, mental and emotional responses; and we can experience stress from our environment, our body, and even our thoughts. Research has shows there is a link between stress and weight gain, weight loss, high blood pressure, heart disease, anxiety, depression, autoimmune disorders, and much more.
Knowing the facts and understanding how stress affects our body is one of the first and most important steps we can take to live a healthier life!
