Stress and Anxiety Relief

What is stress?

 

Stress is a natural condition needed when presented with a challenge or demand. Stress at a time of danger, like being chased by a bear, can definitely save your life. This is called the Fight or Flight reaction. But stress over a long period of time can become harmful.

 

When stressors are always present that fight-or-flight reaction stays turned on.

What are the effects of chronic stress?

 

The long-term activation of the stress-response system and the overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones that are released can disrupt almost all your body's processes. This puts you at increased risk of many health problems, including:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Digestive problems

  • Headaches

  • Heart disease

  • Sleep problems

  • Weight gain

  • Memory and concentration impairment
