So many of us are drenched in stress and we don’t even realize that there could be any other way to live a life. And how much better it could be if we just learned to relax a little and enjoy our days being in control, calm and collected.
The thing is, stress is part of our every day life, sometimes very important one too, as it is keeping us safe and alert to dangers. However, if there is to much of it and for prolong period of time it might be difficult to control it effectively. Over the time it can lead to a significant impact on our physical and mental health.
For the longest time, we believed that healing from stress and anxiety takes years and never-ending therapy sessions. Hypnotherapy has demonstrated that the observable change can happen between 6- 12 sessions.
Here are some ways in which stress can affect our health
- Cardiovascular system: When we experience stress, our body releases adrenaline and cortisol, which can increase heart rate and blood pressure. Prolonged stress can lead to the development of cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, heart attacks, and strokes.
- Immune system: Chronic stress can suppress the immune system, making us more vulnerable to infections and illnesses.
- Digestive system: Stress can cause digestive problems such as indigestion, acid reflux, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
- Respiratory system: Stress can worsen asthma and cause shortness of breath.
- Mental health: Stress can contribute to the development of mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.
- Sleep: Stress can disrupt our sleep patterns, leading to insomnia and fatigue.
- Skin: Stress can worsen skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
- Reproductive system: Stress can affect fertility and sexual function in both men and women and sometimes lead to sexual disfunctions.
