Feeling Tense? Tips to Reduce Your Stress Today

Stress is detrimental to our health and wreaks havoc on our bodies. While stress is your body’s normal reaction to a situation, the way your body reacts can affect your physical, mental and emotional well-being. It’s not uncommon to find yourself stressed. In fact, you can experience it from every aspect of your life including environment, your own thoughts, and those around you.

Stress and Your Health

Chronic stress has been shown to prolong healing, decrease the effectiveness of vaccinations, and even increase the frequency you are stressed, according to NIH Medline Plus. If you have existing medical conditions, stress can make them worse. Your nerves and muscles will react too — causing frequent headaches, muscle soreness and aches or even migraines.

Some Ways to Combat Stress

If you suffer from chronic stress or you notice it’s hard to get through the day, seek professional help for your stress. There are many treatment options, but it is best to consult a physician before starting any treatment for chronic stress issues.
