What stress does to us 

The next time you feel yourself becoming tense, pause and consider that stress is one of the leading causes of poor health, both mental and physical. Research has shown that when we experience undue pressure and strain in our lives, it actually clouds thinking to such a degree that we become much less efficient and are more likely to make harmful choices. We can easily find ourselves in a vicious cycle that is difficult to break.
Muddled thinking and poor memory aren’t the only problem with chronic stress — our health suffers too. In fact, experts in the field are convinced that stress is the number one cause of illness and disease. Keep in mind that stress can masquerade in a variety of disguises, from irritability to sadness — as well as anger. The bottom line is that if we don’t get a handle on our day-to-day experience of stress, our health will eventually deteriorate.
