STRESS TRIGGERS THE FIGHT OR FLIGHT RESPONSE
You’re stuck in traffic, late for a doctor’s appointment, watching the minutes tick away when a tiny control tower in your brain, your hypothalamus, sends out the order: Send in the stress hormones! An army of stress hormones trigger your body’s “fight or flight” response and your heart races, your breathing gets heavy, and your muscles start tensing up for action.
Nature created the fight or flight response to make you react instantly and reflexively to save yourself from physical threats. However, it wasn't intended to cause you distress and fear because you were late for a doctor’s appointment!
WHEN STRESS BECOMES DISTRESS
The American Institute of Stress calls stress “America’s leading health problem.” Stress is so commonplace in our lives that we often ignore its hidden, harmful effects on our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
In fact, the American Medical Association has noted that stress is the basic cause for more than 60% of all human illnesses and diseases, and according to the AMA, chronic stress is linked to the leading causes of death:
Cirrhosis of the liver, and
In addition to stress being linked to the leading causes of death above, more than 75 percent of all medical office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints. Symptoms of chronic stress include:
If we ignore
the wear and tear of chronic stress, we will eventually
pay a huge physical, mental, emotional, and financial price. When it comes to dealing with chronic stress we should take Ben Franklin's advice, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Investing now will improve our physical, mental and emotional well-being and save us from huge medical bills later.
We want you to leave worry, tension, headaches, and anxiety behind and live stress free and enjoy life again.
