How does stress affect your body?
Stress is a hormonal response that happens to your body when your mind is overburdened.
It affects the central nervous system, endocrine, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, muscular and immune system.
Once the stress response has been activated it takes about 90 mins for the body to recover once out of stress mode.
Living in daily 'stress mode' increases dis-ease in the body and has a higher risk of chronic diseases because the body never recovers.
