I want to talk about a health concern that affects us all: stress. Stress is a part of life, and is a natural reaction to the pressures we face. While the most common causes of stress often can’t be avoided, it’s important to cope with stress, because it can lead to a variety of health problems over time.
One of the problems with stress is how unavoidable it can be. Even positive events can add stress to your life! If you won $1,000,000 in the lottery today I can guarantee you would be sick tomorrow! It’s not just negative events that add stress to your life. Other positive causes of stress are starting a job, buying a house, getting married, and having a child. Your body doesn’t differentiate between ‘good’ stress and ‘bad’ stress. Stress is stress!
While stress is an unavoidable part of life, the way we react to it is something that we can control. Stress not only affects our minds, it also affects our bodies. When stress levels are we unconsciously tighten our musculature. Increased tension to the skeletal frame can lead to physical imbalance. When physical stress combines with mental stress, the result is an unhappy you.
