Is stress affecting your health?
Stress can cause mental and physical suffering
According to The American Institute of Stress:
About 33 percent of people report feeling extreme stress
77 percent of people experience stress that affects their physical health
73 percent of people have stress that impacts their mental health
48 percent of people have trouble sleeping because of stress
This trend has only worsened since the COVID-19 pandemic
Resilience is our ability to bounce back from stressful situations. There are evidence-based skills that we can learn to increase resilience, changing our brain's physiological response to stressful situations.
This in turn reduces the risk of mental and physical disease and suffering.
