The most important things in life are often the hardest things to confront. A bad situation at work. A stressful family matter. Low mood or depression. What’s worse, we don’t always understand all the factors fuelling them.
Have you ever had a period of time where you were under stress and felt you were going to barely survive it? Of course, we all manage to meet the work deadline, do those important exams, complete the full marathon or get through a period of nursing or caring for a sick family member. But so often, once the stressful time is over we get sick.
Chronic stress is a big health problem that many people face today, whether they know it or not. Ongoing stress hurts your physical and mental health as well as the health of your relationships with those around you. The symptoms of stress can make life very difficult. To make matters worse, the causes of it are everywhere. Career, finances, safety, family, even our health can be a trigger.
