Why Is It Important To Manage Stress?
Stress Can Cause Serious Illness
It is debilitating. If not recognised and treated it can go on to develop major medical problems including stress induced cancer and anxiety disorders which may subsequently lead to depression.
There is growing evidence that stress is linked to cardiovascular disease, asthma, ulcers, the immune system and hypertension. Additionally an emotional/psychological stress produces a physical stress. (For example an argument with a loved one can cause tightness in our shoulders or neck). This produces a chemical stress which in turn produces a physical stress .... and so on; stress continues to spiral and we must take action.
To make matters worse, stress (without action) can develop into anxiety disorders such as panic, or phobias - agoraphobia and claustrophobia, or specific fears - for example of spiders, snakes, blood, heights and more!
