Letting stress get the best of you may be doing more harm than you think. Physical and psychological threats such as the stress associated with work, interpersonal relationships, major life changes, illness or the death of a loved one can trigger the stress response. Even the typical day-to-day demands of living can contribute to your body’s stress response.

The long-term activation of the stress-response system and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones can disrupt almost all your body’s processes, increasing your risk of:

  • Obesity
  • Digestive problems
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Heart disease
  • Memory problems
  • Decreased libido
  • Worsening symptoms of autoimmune diseases

Stressful events are a fact of life, but you can take steps to manage the impact these events have on your health. Healthy 4 Life Nutrition will help you identify what stresses you out, how to take control of some stress-inducing circumstances, and how to take care of yourself physically and emotionally when you face events you can’t control. The payoff of managing stress is peace of mind and perhaps, a longer, healthier life.
