What Stress Does to Us?

Humans are programmed to receive stress and react accordingly; some people are challenged and perform better while others respond negatively. Negative effects include hypertension or high blood pressure, chest pain, insomnia, and head or stomach ache. Skin allergy or acne also worsens, and being subjected to stress for a long time can lower our immune system making us prone to sickness.

Letting yourself succumb to stress only lead to more problems. You may tend to under eat or overeat whatever of the two options you choose is not good for your body. Some consume alcohol, smoke, or even use drugs to forget the cause of their stress. You may get irritable or shout at your wife or child when they are trying to talk to you which can be bad for your relationship. Being exposed to stress is perfectly normal but you do not have to let it ruin you.
