STRESs

Stress is a reality of everyday life and is often defined as the body’s response to the demands of life. It can be caused by almost anything including both positive and negative life experiences.

 

Stress is considered chronic and therefore problematic when it becomes so acute that over an extended period of time, you are unable to accomplish your daily activities, perform your work adequately or it interferes with your relationships. This chronic stress can be overwhelming and contributes to a many mental and physical health issues.​

Research has linked high stress levels to the following:

 

  • Insomnia or hypersomnia

  • Self-medicating with drugs or alcohol

  • Depression

  • Diminished physical health

  • Decreased productivity and enjoyment at work

  • Reduced or increased appetite

  • Decreased intimacy

  • Migraine headaches and other physical complaints

  • Ulcer, heart attack, stroke
