Stress IS the root of all diseases. So just how stressed are you?

We produce hundreds of thousands of chemicals for every thought that enters our mine. Which in turn affects the state of our physical body. Just think about what those negative thoughts and the effects can do over a period of time!?!

Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way. When you sense danger—whether it’s real or imagined—the body’s defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight-or-freeze” reaction, or the stress response.

The stress response is the body’s way of protecting you.

When working properly, it helps you stay focused, energetic, and alert. In emergency situations, stress can save your life—giving you extra strength to defend yourself, for example, or spurring you to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident.

The stress response also helps you rise to meet challenges. Stress is what keeps you on your toes during a presentation at work, sharpens your concentration when you study for an exam when you’d rather be watching TV.

But beyond a certain point, stress stops being helpful and starts causing major damage to your health, your mood, your productivity, your relationships, and your quality of life. In the current day-in-age, we are overloaded with these stress responses that are engaged at all times of the day. You can imagine just how bad this can be for you!!!
