Wellness

It is easy to put our health on the side so we can deal with what life throws at us: family duties, job stress, relationship troubles, and the list goes on. Often times we give up nutrition, sleep, and physical activity and place our energies on life’s demands.

Stress can change everything. Stress contributes to many illnesses such as heart disease, strokes, and high blood pressure. Stress contributes to the development of alcoholism and drug addiction, obesity, and other harmful behaviors.

Learning and practicing wellness can help us understand how everything is connected. When our bodies are stressed our digestion and immune system works less, we have faster blood clotting, increased blood sugar, increased cholesterol, and increased metabolism. Stress management is key so these health issues don’t occur all the time.
