This is Part 1 of a two-part series on stress and it’s impact on your body AND mind…
According to the Australian Psychological Association (APA),
“Seventy-two percent of Australians admit that stress affects their physical health, and 64% of us claim it’s not doing us any good in the mental health department, either.
The three main causes for stress in Australia are: financial concerns, health issues and family issues.”
Considering that being chronically stressed has become so mainstream these days, and it is such a regular (daily) occurrence, you might think that stress only affects your nervous system?
After all, that’s where you perceive it to be in abundance – because it is quite literally unnerving!
In actuality, stress, whether the source of it is physical, mental, real or imagined – also compromises your digestive system, immune system, reproductive system, most major organs, and even your posture and alignment. It really is a full body response!
