We all deal with stress in our day-to-day life. However, did you know that chronic stress can have a negative impact on your overall health? Individuals from all walks of life are susceptible to chronic stress. However, there are ways to address this form of long-term stress and help take back control of your life.
What is Chronic Stress?
Chronic is a form of long-term stress that has a negative impact on the body. According to Yale Medicine, “Causes of chronic stress could include poverty, a dysfunctional marriage or family, or a deeply dissatisfying job. In today’s hectic society, there are many possible sources.”
This type of stress is common among individuals who have experienced traumatic life experiences, work high-stress jobs, or are predisposed via genetics. Anyone can experience chronic stress, therefore knowing the dangers can help individuals identify chronic stress and work towards fighting it.
The Impact of Chronic Stress on our Physical Health
When it comes to your physical health, chronic stress can have a lasting impact. According to the Mayo Clinic, “The long-term activation of the stress response system and too much exposure to cortisol and other stress hormones can disrupt almost all the body’s processes.”
Common impacts of chronic stress on an individual’s health in a number of ways, including (but not limited to);
- Heart Disease
- High blood pressure
- Memory lapses and problems with focus
The Impact of Chronic Stress on Our Mental Health
Just as important as your physical health, chronic stress can have an impact on your mental health. Normally, after a perceived threat or stressor is gone, your body’s Adeline levels will return to a more normal state. However, with chronic stress, this is not the case.
Individuals who experience chronic stress can feel an impact on their mental health just as with their physical health. Typically, this will manifest itself as depression or anxiety (in some instances both). Both are equally serious, making addressing your chronic stress important.
The Impact of Chronic Stress on Our Relationships
Everyone can agree, we can’t be our best selves when we don’t feel well. The impact chronic stress can have on our physical and mental health can in turn have an adverse effect on the relationships with individuals in our lives. The loss or damage to valuable relationships can in turn worsen the chronic stress, creating a negative cycle.
Addressing your chronic stress is vital to helping break that cycle, and preserving your health and relationships. But how do you fight against something as serious as chronic stress?
