Rockin’ Friends Woo Us To Your Blog

by Sherry Riter in Rockin' Friend,Stress,Woo Us To Your Blog

Stress. We all have it in one form or another and it is simply our physical, emotional and mental responses to changes. Stress can be good, bad, long-term or short-term, but there is no escaping it.

How does stress affect the body?

Initially, stress brings about the “flight or fight” feeling – the heart beats faster, breathing quickens, blood pressure rises and adrenaline is released. This causes:

  • Headaches
  • Digestive problems
  • Tense shoulder and neck muscles
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia or sleeping way too much
  • Respiratory problems
  • Low resistance to germs because of a suppressed immune system – sick more often
  • Gaining or losing weight because of increased or decreased appetite

One way to effectively manage stress is to develop mutually supportive relationships. You knew I had to tie this into my community! Where can you find wonderful people who help support you during the good times and bad?

You guessed it…In my community where you will find many wonderful people!
