Stress is the main cause for inflammation in the body and the main reason that many people overeat. This can cause all sorts of serious health problems, including digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, weight gain, heart disease, hypertension, weakened immune function, suppressed thyroid function and even cancer.
In addition, when you’re constantly stressed out, there is an almost immediate mental disconnect from your body. Because you’re so focused on your external situations, you won’t be able to pay attention to the internal needs and dialogue of your body. You can’t hear it and therefore you can’t take care of it.
Stress is not just something that affects one person though. It can be a very contagious thing. You often reflect the thoughts, behaviors and actions of the people you choose to surround yourself with. Whether that’s family, friends or co-workers, everyone that has a part in your life, has an impact on it. This can be good or bad, so it’s important to surround yourself with people that are positive and lift you up, not habitual Nancy’s that bring you down.
When you’re consistently around stressed out people, there is an abundance of negative energy circulating around you. And just like the Law of Attraction states, like attracts like. Where there is negativity, there will be more negativity. It’s no surprise how much more difficult it can be to be calm and collected if you’re always surrounded by stressful situations.
In order for you to live a truly healthy and happy life, you need to not only practice stress management techniques, but also create space for positive energy and people, and the only way to make room for that is to begin to remove the negative energy that surrounds you and start taking different action.
Here are some ways to break the domino effect of stress:
