If you’re feeling tense all the time even on the little things, it can lead you to feel stressed chronically. It has a negative impact on your physical health like suppression of the immune system and being at a higher risk of contracting heart diseases. According to Andy Tix, Ph.D., “When we experience stress, our sympathetic nervous systems are activated. Our bodies direct stress hormones such as adrenaline to respond. Salivation decreases, perspiration increases, breathing quickens, heart rate accelerates, digestion slows, blood pressure increases, and immune system functioning lessens.”
Not only that but it can also worsen your psychological state and maybe the reason why mental health illnesses like depression and anxiety will surface. It is indeed alarming.
