The modern world has become increasingly more stressful, and our attention is required in many different tasks and obligations. Our personal lives require our undivided attention, while our professional lives are very competitive. According to studies, almost 50% of Americans are concerned with the amount of stress that is in their lives, and almost half of those surveyed said that they would seek stress therapy solutions. In fact, there are three stressors that have the ability to affect your overall health.
Structural stress is stress that is related to mechanical imbalances and your posture. It is not uncommon for people to develop physical stress by incorrectly lifting and/or carrying objects. Over time, this stress can lead to back pain, neck pain and other health conditions where a person needs effective stress therapy solutions.
This type of stress includes anxiety and mental distress that often follows a sad experience. Emotional stress is closely linked to physical stress, and it can manifest itself through high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, depression and other physical ailments.
Chemical stress includes external forces that you may or may not have control over. For example, it can be chemicals in the tap water you drink, or things that eat that you are allergic to. It is important to determine if the food you are eating is causing you to have adverse reactions.
The response your body has to these stressors is known as the fight or flight response. It is a natural reaction designed to prepare your body to run from a predator or to stay and fight. Due to hectic lifestyles, most people are not able to properly rest. This can lead to physical problems, imbalances within the body and can also affect your digestive and immune systems.
