Everyone experiences stress. Stress is manageable and harmless in small doses. However, prolonged stress prompts the body to release hormones eg. arenaline and cortisol causing changes to blood pressure, heart rate and metabolism. These physiological responses prepare the body for flight and fight (reaction to fear) situations and should only last for brief periods.
If the stress is continuous, over time, chronic stress leads to major health problems eg. anxiety, depression, headaches, indigestion, diarrhoea, palpitations, sleep problems, heart disease, diabetes and autoimmune diseases among others. It also affects your thoughts and your behaviour.
You can’t completely eliminate stress from your life but you can have control on how much it affects you.
