Read on to learn more!
Stress is defined as the feeling of being overwhelmed or unable to cope with mental or emotional pressure. Stress is our body’s natural response to pressure.
Stress affects all of us in many different forms and fashions.
Adrenal glands (a.k.a. suprarenal glands) are small, triangular-shaped glands located directly on top of your kidneys. Adrenal glands create hormones that help regulate your metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, responses to stress and other essential bodily functions.
Cortisol (a.k.a. the stress hormone) is made in your adrenal glands.
Your cortisol levels are elevated when you experience a high amount of anxiety or stress. Hence the term, "Adrenaline Rush"!
Your cortisol levels are lowered when you are in a relaxed state.
When your cortisol levels rise, all of the energy in your body goes into handling the stressor instead of regulating other bodily functions like the immune systems and digestive system.
Symptoms of stress can be physical, cognitive, behavioral and emotional. These symptoms can include burnout, anxiety, shortness of breath, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, isolation, low self-esteem, cancer, violent behavior and suicide.
Stress commonly shows up through your reaction to the stressor. But did you know that stress can also show up through your skin? Stress can cause pain or trauma throughout your entire body. It can show up in the forms of back pain, stomachaches, excessive sweating, acne or skin rash.
Stress definitely affects the skin. Did you know that over 84.5 million people are affected by skin disorders? Aside from genetics, food and environmental factors, most eczema sufferers state that their eczema flare ups are caused by stress. No wonder toxic people and toxic situations have the ability to make your skin itchy or cause extreme breakouts.
Calming sounds such as music, white noise, sound bowls and the sound of the rain have been proven to significantly reduce stress levels.
Did you know that your skin is the largest organ on your body? Aside from your hair and nails, your skin is responsible for protecting you from a myriad of harmful toxins and germs.
