Some is good. Too much is destructive.
Whether the stress is a mountain lion or work pressure and deadlines, we react in the same way. The mind does not differentiate between the two. The body automatically reacts to the stress or threat, whatever it is. We all need tools to help us protect ourselves from the unhealthy affects of stress.
Here are some symptoms or diseases that may be caused or worsened from the body’s reaction to stress:
- Muscle aches and pain
- Difficulty sleeping
- Feelings of generalized anxiety
- Panic attacks
- Stomach &/or intestinal problems
- Susceptibility to infections, colds, flu’s
