Are You In Stress Overload?
Stress overload is when a person undergoes more strain than he or she can handle. The weak economy has taken a toll not only on finances, but also on our nerves, and we are plagued by uncertainties of the future.
According to Margaret Lunney, RN, PhD and Professor at The City University of New York, stress overload pertains to “excessive amounts and types of demands that require action. It is a human response that is experienced as a problem and contributes to the development of other problems.”
Stress overload can be brought about by several factors such as intense pressures, illnesses, long-term difficulties, and leaving little time for relaxation. Long-term exposure to stress can even lead to serious health problems that can disrupt nearly every system in your body. It can raise blood pressure, suppress the immune system, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, cause digestive problems, sleep problems, speed up the aging process and the list goes on.
There are many things one can do to reduce the impact and cope with symptoms such as Yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, and of course massage. So make sure to book your appointment for a relaxing massage at Skinsational Skin & Body Spa to start your way to stress-free living!
