A healthy body can handle stress in the short term. When you feel stress, the brain signals the adrenal glands to release hormones including epinephrine and cortisol. This complex process helps the body manage that stressful experience. When stress stays in overdrive, however, the adrenal glands can become overtaxed.
If you leave stress unchecked it can lead to serious health problems including high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. High levels of stress can harm your immune system, making you more prone to infections.
While you can’t eliminate stress, you can learn to better cope with whatever challenges life throws your way. One way to do that is with meditation. Meditation can help you become more relaxed and calm, reducing stress while improving your physical and emotional well-being.
