It is well known stress is a silent killer. Stress in nature can start disease and death within an organism. Stress can also gradually erode a human being’s overall health if not controlled or maintained. Prolong stress is not healthy for the body or mind.
The article, “Stress, the silent threat” Michael van Soest explores how stress can damage the body. He states,
“Studies have shown that one to three adults suffer from the effects of unmanaged stress. Many of us don’t even realize how stressed we actually are; often becoming accustomed to being tense, so we think of it as normal. It damages our health, our work, our relationships. It destroys families, businesses, and lives. It costs companies staggering amounts every year in health costs, absenteeism, and poor performance. In fact, stress built up over a long period can reduce our ability to regenerate, which means less energy and tolerance to combat daily stress.”
