Menopause_Woman_Hot_Flashes_shutterstock_181675298Stress is something that is a normal physical and psychological  reaction to the constant demands of life.  Surveys show that many Americans experience episodes of stressful situations  during  their lives.

What are the causes of stress?   Remember that your brain is constant with alarms that signals stress is occurring. When your brain perceives a threat, it signals your body to release hormones to fuel your capacity to give you a response. This has been called the “fight-or-flight” response which protects you during emergencies.

Once the threat is gone, your body is meant to return to a normal relaxed state. Unfortunately the nonstop stress of modern life means that your alarm system rarely shuts off.

That’s why stress management is so important. Stress management gives you a range of tools to reset your alarm system.

Without stress management, all too often your body is always on high alert. Over time, high levels of stress lead to serious health problems. Don’t wait until stress has a negative impact on your health, relationships or quality of life. Start practicing a range of stress management techniques today.
