How do you rate your stress level?
On a scale of 1 to 10 what is yours? Is your stress a long-term stress or does it come in go in moments of overwhelm?
Did you know that chronic stress puts your health at risk? The Mayo Clinic reports that the long-term activation of the stress response system and the overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones that follows can disrupt almost all your body's processes. This puts you at increased risk of many health problems, including:
Muscle tension and pain
Heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure and stroke
Memory and concentration impairment
This is why it is so important to learn healthy coping skills and alleviate stressors as you can.
