Stressed Out?

The demands of our modern world provide lots of things to stress out about. Job anxieties, health difficulties, money problems, and social pressures can weigh heavily on us. Sometimes we create our own internal stress with unhealthy life habits such as poor nutrition and lack of sleep. No matter where that stress originates, it leads to damage. Stress triggers the body’s fight-or-flight response. This response releases a torrent of stress hormones which raises heart rate and increases blood pressure. Chronic stress can affect every system in the body. It can lower the immune response, upset the digestive tract and increase the risk of heart attack.
