It's All Connected
We, as human beings, have a system offunctioning. This system is made out of many different connections,all dependent on one another. So, everything mental and emotionalrelated to our behavior is somehow connected to everything physical.Therefore, any excessive amount of mental stress or imbalance mayreflect onto our physical state of being, making us ill. Amazingly,many people do not seem to accept this state of affairs and tend todeny it, claiming that their constant headaches have nothing to dowith their stressful jobs, or how their stiff muscles and painfulbody parts have absolutely no connections with their lifestyles andtheir everyday frustrations. This is a great misconception, sinceeverything is connected, especially our body and our mind. All dailytensions and shocks our brain endures, will surely reflect upon ouremotions, which, again will have an impact onto our physicalwell-being, causing different health problems, some more serious thanthe others. So, do not deny what is obvious. Rather, read on to learnmore about it.
Good Hormones – Bad Hormones
Our thinking and behavior dependsgreatly upon different chemical reactions and the hormones weproduce. Taking that into consideration, every time we experiencesome distressing situations, our body releases a malignant hormonecalled cortisone, which makes us more prone to diseases by reducingthe function of our immune system. Subsequently, each one of us has aweak spot which can be affected by cortisone. Every time you getexcessively stressed out or frustrated, this hormone may decrease thefunctioning of your immune system, making you more prone toillnesses, which might affect different organs in your body, causingyour health to deteriorate. In order to keep this negative chainreaction at bay, make sure you exercise regularly, and know manydifferent stress removal techniques like yoga, meditation andsimilar, thereby being prepared once stress strikes and startsaffecting your life and daily functioning.
Additionally, there is a small glandbehind our breastbone. This gland is called thymus and is in chargeof producing our white blood cells, thereby making us less prone toillnesses since it increases our body's defense against all healthproblems. However, each time we are nervous, frustrated, angry,depressed or anxious, this gland is affected and our white blood cellproduction is stopped. This results in a weaker immune system, makingus far more prone to developing illnesses.
To conclude, everything is connectedand every aspect of your mental well-being is bound to affect yourbodily health and vice-versa. Thus, be very careful and make sureyour life is well balanced and therefore, long and happy.
