Increase stress levels in the body means you are constantly ready to fight
off that fierce lion! When you are in a stressful situation, like a lion chasing you and about to have us for his dinner, you tend to run for your life, and your body goes through a few chemical changes.
This occurs to prepare your body to run fast in order to get away. Your stress hormones increase, and this does a few things to your body…
1.It reduces the blood flow to your digestive system, as digesting your dinner is not a priority - you need to get blood to your skeletal system, arms and legs, so you can run and not become dinner for the lion.
Prolonged stress will reduce blood flow to the digestive system and not allow you to digest your food well and this will cause you to put weight on.
Also there are changes in appetite that go along with stress - craving for sugar and fatty foods
There are people who seem to do everything to loose weight but can’t - maybe they need to reduce their stress levels, and/or learn to manage their stress levels.
* Increase stress reduces your immunity. Again, fighting a cold is not your body’s priority when you are being chased by a lion. More stress means more sickness.
[Remember the modern day lions are the banks, bosses, traffic, bills, computers, etc, etc]
* Stress reduces your libido (sex drive) if the stress levels persist. Romance is not on your mind when that lion is getting close!
* Increase rate of aging due to stress leading to increase insulin resistance and lowered growth hormone levels!
* Increase chance of depression, anxiety, (due to lowered serotonin levels) and sleep problems, decrease concentration
* Increases LDL (‘bad cholesterol’) as stress hormones down-regulate the gene for HDL(‘good cholesterol’) and reduces the number of receptors for LDL, so less LDL is taken out of the bloodstream. Not good news!
ALL SOUNDING TOO FAMILIAR……WHAT CAN YOU DO……
