In today’s high-pressure society, steering clear from stress may seem almost impossible. However, it’s crucial for your overall health to manage your stress. It can cause anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes.
More than half of the population – 77 percent – experience regular physical symptoms caused by stress, statistics show. Thirty-three percent feel like they are living with extreme stress and 48 percent feel their stress has increased over the past five years.
The most common causes of stress include relationships, money, job pressure, sleep deprivation, and poor nutrition. If you are experiencing one or more of these causes, it may be time to reevaluate your physical health.
