What Stress Really Does To Your Health
We wear stress like a badge of honor in modern-day society. It seems like we’re
stressed about everything!
…our relationships…finances…politics- what happened on the last episode of
Stress is an unavoidable part of life and not all stress is bad stress. For example,
situational stress can actually work as a healthy motivator to meet a deadline. But what
do you do if the stress from work continues even after the deadline passes?
We know a little stress is OK but how much stress is too much? Problems arise
when you get stressed and stay stressed. Chronic stress can affect all areas of your life
and health. This is because stress releases cortisol which, in elevated levels, can put
you on the path to things like high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and more.
Mindfulness is the solution
Stress affects your mindset. It controls the way you think and live. The good
news is you can change your mindset and change your life. When you are present and
living in the moment, you aren’t worried about all of the what ifs.
