Managing Ongoing Stress Can Be a Challenge

Stress is a normal part of life. It can be either acute or chronic and can be caused by anything that poses a challenge in life. This can include jobs, relationships, long term illness, or events. If left unmanaged, the effects of stress can lead to physical, psychological, and even emotional problems. Some health care professionals believe that some (acute) stress can be a good thing, but chronic stress is not.

Therefore, our objective should be learning to manage long-term stress. Reducing stress can be achieved via meditation and relaxation techniques, as well as exercise, and the use of dietary supplements.

Read on about how chronic stress affects us physically and mentally. You may be surprised at the consequences.

Common symptoms and results of stress can include:

  • A fast heartbeat
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sleep disturbances

  • A stiff neck and/or tight shoulders
