Cool Stuff about Stress – Chronic Stress
The stress response is only designed to last long enough to escape from dangerous physical situations – about 30-60 seconds.
It is a state of enormous physical imbalance designed to make us very strong and very speedy right now.
When we are NOT in dangerous situations (99% of the time), stress is an inappropriate response.
Unfortunately, all we have to do is think something is terrible, and the stress response turns on.
And this is the way many of us think about things for a large part of our days. So we keep activating the stress response.
When we remain in chronic stress, this imbalance results in all kinds of problems.
Nearly every malady common in our society has a stress component.
Learning how to turn off and even prevent stress can help us avoid a lot of these health problems.
