Stress Less in August
What is Stress?
Stress is the way you react to any change (good, bad, real, or even imagined).
These are ways the body responds to stress:
· Breathing speeds up
· Heart rate speeds up
· Blood pressure rises
· Blood sugar increases
· Muscles tense
Left unchecked, Stress can lead to health problems:
· Back or neck pain
· High blood pressure
· Heart disease
· A lowering of the body’s immune system
