Stress affects multiple systems in your body, speeds up the aging process, suppresses the immune system so you get sick more often, and causes many unwanted symptoms that rob your quality of life. Who wants that?
From TED-Ed creator Sharon Horesh Bergquist:
Headaches, IBS, insomnia, brain fog, high blood pressure, palpitations, and frequent colds are just some of the physical byproducts of chronic stress. While these begin as minor symptoms, they can snowball to something more serious.
We need our bodies to step up and react to real stress. The damage of prolonged, unrelenting everyday stress wreaks havoc on your body, which is beautifullyillustrated in this video. We hope this compels you to make the changes in lifestyle, diet, and exercise you might need to put daily stress in perspective and hopefully enjoy your life more.
Acupuncture has a strong effect on the nervous system, which including the brain, allowing thoughts and emotions to calm down. We can be caught in an endless cycle of body reactions leading to emotional ones without knowing it but with the right help and work we do ourselves, we can reduce stress in ourselves and around us.
