The stress response At Affordable Counseling Center IN Brandon Fl, And Tampa Fl.

Stressful situations trigger a physical reaction known as the stress in Brandon Fl, and Tampa Fl, response. The brain relays warnings to the muscles, which tighten, and to the adrenal glands, which release stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones help your body prepare to fight or flee to safety: your heart pounds, blood pressure rises, and more of your blood is sent to your brain and muscles; your breath quickens to get more oxygen into your blood; and your body releases sugars and fats into the blood for energy.

In the short term, the stress in Brandon Fl, and Tampa Fl, response can help you navigate a difficult situation. But chronic stress can lead to physical damage. “Stress increases blood sugar and can make diabetes worse. It can create high blood pressure and cause insomnia. It can also make people become anxious, worried, depressed, or frustrated.” Chronic stress also increases the risk of heart disease, heartburn, and many other health problems.
