Chronic Stress

Unfortunately, much of the stress we experience is not short-lived but ongoing. Say, for instance, a loved one spends many days in the hospital, job demands seem relentless, or an important relationship dissolving. When stress is prolonged, or chronic, the body tries to keep up by releasing the same hormones that it provides during short-term stress; however, both of your bodies and minds can’t stay in this state of high alert for very long. Over the course of weeks and sometimes even months, the very same hormones that initially gave you extra strength and mental clarity are now starting to work against you.
