In our super busy schedule of modern lifestyle, we tend to forget about ourselves. This can proves so harmful, not for our mental well being but for physical health also.

Your Head

You may develop tension headaches or find that stress makes it hard to sleep (and that lack of sleep can also lead to headache).

Your Heart and Lungs

In moment of stress you’ll notice your heart pounding faster and your breath getting quick and shallow. At the same time, your blood vessels tighten, raising blood pressure. When stress is chronic, that increased heart rate and high blood pressure can damage arteries over time.

Your Digestion

Stress can cause nausea, butterflies or stomach aches, plus it can stall digestion as your body diverts energy elsewhere to help your body respond with “fight or flight” in the face of a perceived threat.

Your Immune System

Research suggests that stress can impact the immune system affecting everything from your likelihood of getting a cold sore to your ability to build resistance to the flu when you get the flu shot.

Your Muscles

You might notice your muscles tighten during times of stress, particularly in your shoulders, back, face and jaw.
