Unmanaged stress causes havoc within the body

Chronic overstimulation of the sympathetic nervous system is often the consequence of our reaction to daily challenges. The result is similar to chronic inflammation, in that stress can contribute to diseases and disorders including:

Cardiac arrhythmias
Hypertension
Immune suppression
Gastrointestinal ailments
Anxiety
Sleep disorders
Defensiveness
Isolation
Sexual dysfunction
Regular physical activity, such as a daily walk, is undoubtedly the best way to help maintain balance of the nervous system and overall health. You also can help manage unhealthy stress with mind-body therapies such as breath work, meditation, guided imagery and visualization. Yoga and tai chi, as well as body therapies such as massage and acupuncture work can help. Find a stress-relieving activity that works for you, and make it a priority to practice it.
