Stress is part of our everyday lives. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that not all stress is bad. Stress can motivate us to perform our best, whether it is with a job interview or college exam.
However, if stress lingers for too long without being addressed, it can turn into a condition called “chronic stress”. Chronic stress is directly connected to a variety of ailments and conditions that can be mild or chronic in nature and impact your life on a daily basis. Ailments include diseases of aging, cardiovascular disease, immune disorders, digestive disorders, headaches, sleep abnormalities, mood disorders and many others.
Different types of stress
Over 70% of primary care doctor visits can be attributed to stress-related concerns. Financial stress, work stress, and relationship stress including family, work and personal relationships are truly unavoidable in today’s world. New stressors for young children and teens are more commonplace now than any time in recent history with significant stressors from threats of terrorism and political discourse.
