Stress: How Does it Impact Your Health

Stress plays a huge role in our lives and work lifestyles, but stress also causes major problems to our overall health. High stress levels can cause headaches, muscle tension, fatigue and sleep problems. Many people know that stress can cause these issues. But did you know that high stress levels could impact your heart? Stress that’s left unchecked can contribute to high blood pressure, heart disease as well as obesity and diabetes. That’s why your friends at South Denver Heart Center are big believers in incorporating stress management and exercises, as well as practices in stress reduction. But the heart is just one area where you may be doing more harm to your body when you stress a lot. Stress can also cause damaging skin conditions, such as hives and eczema. And stress can also be correlated to everyday aches and pains, such as backaches, headaches and some digestive problems. Many Americans and people around the world think that there is very little impact on health during high stress times. But according to medical research, up to 90% of illness and disease is stress-related. In a world of high stress and high expectations, your Colorado heart team urges you to take the follow steps to reduce any stress in your life:
 

Living a balanced life is hard to do in our fast paced society. Eating healthy and going to the gym are great starts, but if your life is very stressful, you’re doing a lot of unnecessary damage to your body. Keep positive thoughts and make sure to spend time with your family.
