When we are faced with stressful circumstances, our bodies respond by releasing stress hormones, resulting in increased heart rate and blood pressure, increased sugar (glucose) in the bloodstream, and alteration of our immune system, digestive system and reproductive system. Stress also interrupts our sleep and our ability to concentrate. Prolonged exposure to stress and stress hormones can result in excessive wear and tear on the body and mind, and to diminished functioning in daily life. Stress counseling can teach us skills for managing stress in our lives. Visit our Stress Management page for more information about our services and our stress counselors in Boston and Newton, MA.
