    The Link Between Stress and Physical Health: How Stress Affects Your Body

    In this episode of The GOOD IDEA Audio Blog, we talk about stress. We could all do with a little less stress in our lives.  Sometimes, we become so used to stress that we accept it as a new normal.  However, if we understand how stress manifests in the body, it may make it easier for us to identify sources of stress that could be detrimental to our health.

    Join me as I unravel the science behind stress responses, from the initial triggers to the cascading effects on various bodily systems. We'll discuss the role of cortisol, the body's primary stress hormone, and how prolonged stress can lead to inflammation, weakened immune function, and chronic health conditions.

    Whether you're navigating everyday stressors or seeking a deeper understanding of holistic wellness, this episode offers actionable tips and empowering knowledge.

    The Physiology of Stress
    Effects on the Cardiovascular System
    Impact on the Immune System
