Stress – How it Affects the Body

 In Jessica Thompson, Stress at Work
Stress Affects Body

Stress can affect your body in many ways, with one person experiencing it in a completely different manner to another. From a surge of adrenaline to a change in appetite, you may experience a ‘stress headache,’ sweating, indigestion, palpitations and muscle tension to name but a few.

Reactions like this are your body’s way of preparing you for action, often known as the ‘Fight or Flight Response.’ With stress, your body is constantly reacting in this way and the chemical changes it causes can be harmful to your long-term health.

Emotionally, stress can result in anxiety, short temper, irritability and even depression. Left unchecked, all these symptoms can build up over time and increase your risk of heart disease and other illnesses like irritable bowel syndrome.

Don’t suffer in silence if you’re suffering from stress, whether it be at home or in the workplace. Talk to your partner, best friend, boss or HR department to see what can be done to reduce stress and its ill-effects.
