STRESS BUSTERS

Everyone experiences stress.

Stress is the body’s natural way of responding to danger,  a threat or call to action. When you perceive danger or a threat, the body’s instinctive defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-flight-freeze” response. Your nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones which prepares the body for emergency action.

The more your stress response is activated, the easier it becomes to trigger and the harder to shut off. Chronic stress disrupts nearly every system in your body and can leave you vulnerable to physical and mental health problems. That’s why it’s so important to practice strategies daily that help to you to relax, challenge negativity and build your resilience to stress.
