How High Stress Levels Effects Your Health

How High Stress Levels Effects Your Health

Elements Massage Chandler Village

We have all heard repeatedly that stress is bad for you. From work-related stress to home/life stress, in our accelerated culture it is easy to feel bogged down, behind the curve, and in perpetual motion trying to catch up to accomplish things. However, that never-ending to-do list can wreck havoc on your health.

Physical Ramifications

Consequences of perpetual levels of high stress can include negative things that affect your physical health such as:

  • Chronic tension headaches, migraines, or behind-the-eye headaches
  • Muscle tension and knots
  • Constriction of the chest muscles
  • High blood pressure
  • Increased risk for heart disease
  • Conditions like diabetes or obesity
  • Stomach problems, including ulcers
  • Insomnia or other sleep complications
  • General fatigue and exhaustion

Mental Ramifications

When it comes to the mental and emotional consequences of sustained high stress levels, the following symptoms may manifest:

  • Sadness, depression, or withdrawal from social life
  • Frequent irritability
  • Quick to anger
  • Higher anxiety levels
  • Feelings of restlessness
  • Overeating or under eating
  • Increased dependence on alcohol or tobacco use
  • Lack of focus, motivation, or creativity
  • Decreased satisfaction with life

Stress is a main culprit in life that can severely diminish your quality of life. Learning how to manage your stress levels through a strategy like regular massage therapy sessions, routine exercise, and incorporating relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, or tai chi can really help you get a hold on your symptoms and take charge of your health and wellness.
