“Stressed Out”


There are many things to worry about due to the pressures of our contemporary world. We can feel a lot of strain from our jobs, our health, our finances, and society. Sometimes, unhealthy lifestyle choices like poor nutrition and insufficient sleep cause us to experience internal stress. That tension causes harm regardless of where it comes from. The body’s fight-or-flight reaction is triggered by stress. This reaction causes a flood of stress hormones to be released, raising blood pressure and heart rate. Every system in the body can be impacted by persistent stress. It can impair digestion, weaken the immune system, and raise the risk of heart attacks. Muscles that are under continual strain may contract continuously. This could lead to the spine becoming less flexible and impeding the signals of the nervous system.

Get your body moving. Exercise can improve your mood. It assists in strengthening your cardiovascular system, which helps to lower blood pressure. Increased activity can also boost white blood cell counts, which can help to counteract the negative effects of stress on the immune system.

Consume a Healthy Diet. A well-balanced diet can have a direct impact on your ability to cope with stress. Consuming processed foods high in sugar and refined carbohydrates provides little nutritional value and result in unhealthy blood sugar peaks and valleys. Consume plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and omega-3 fatty acid-rich proteins.

Get some Bodywork done: Massage and assisted stretching are great ways to offer positive feedback between our brains and body that help keep us balanced.
