In brief: Stress Consequences
A certain amount of stress is normal, however unchecked, stress can cause and contribute to disease.
Anxiety, hypertension, lowered immune response, insomnia, and even autoimmune disorders are all linked to stress. The best remedy for stress is mindfulness and meditation. Try sitting & breathing, yoga, or exercise. Whatever you choose, sustained stress management is the best prevention.
