UNDERSTANDING STRESS AND HEALTH
STRESS. What do you do when you hear or see that word? Do your shoulders tense? Does your stomach tie itself in knots? Or do you roll your eyes thinking “here they go again”? Stress is a huge topic and we hear about it all the time. Experts claim that up to 90% of doctor’s visits involve stress-related complaints. We know that too much stress can have negative effects on our health and yet we often glaze over it and paint it with that “it’s just psychosomatic” brush.
