Modern life is full of expectations, deadlines, demands, and other "headaches." For many people, stress is commonplace.
In small doses, stress is healthy and necessary.
It can motivate you, spring you into action, and help you perform under pressure.
When stress becomes chronic, your body, mind and spirit ultimately pay the price.

Stress is a normal physical response. It alerts you to events that somehow threaten or upset your balance.
When a threat is perceived, the heart reacts by increasing its rate and blood pressure to feed your mind and body with extra oxygenated blood, pupils dilate to sharpen your senses, and the nervous system releases hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol, to prepare the body for quick reaction. This can be life saving.
However, the body was not intended to be in a constant state of excitement. It is well established that the body prematurely ages with the long term impact from the release of adrenaline and cortisol (a steroid), chronic elevated blood pressure, sedentary lifestyle, unchecked depression, anxiety and other stress factors.
Elevated cortisol levels have a direct impact on fat storage and weight gain in stressed individuals. Obesity can lead to chronic pain, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
Migraines, headaches, insomnia, weight gain, anxiety and depression are common symptoms of chronic stress. These symptoms are often early signals in response to a healthy body. These should alert you to the need for positive change.
Chronic stress leads to heart disease by releasing a protein called fibrinogen, which speeds up the clotting process. Clotting is critical, especially in an emergency. However, the constant release of fibrinogen can be very dangerous as it is an indicator for heart attacks or strokes.
Chronic stress also leads to a suppressed immune system. A lowered immunity inhibits our our body's capacity to rally-up the necessary antibodies, such as lymphocytes, to fight off infections and diseases.
Additionally, it also accelerates the aging process and can even contribute to infertility.
