Stress is the body’s physical, mental, or emotional response to stimuli. It is a normal part of life that could be a response to changes in one’s life or environment. Some short term stress can be life-saving (i.e. getting out of a danger), but many of us live in a near constant state of stress. Unlike short term stress which can be protective, constant or chronic stress can be harmful. Research has linked chronic stress with high blood pressure, clogged arteries, obesity, poor sleep, and brain changes linked to anxiety, depression, and addiction.
In an effort to encourage a healthy community, the Loch Raven Improvement Association will be starting a “Stress Less” Challenge. Participants who engage in 15+ minutes of stress lowering activities (laughing, meditating, exercise, etc.), 4+ days per week for 3+ weeks will be entered to win a prize pack!
If you are interested in participating or would like more details, please text Dena at 443-267-8380.
