YOU can make a difference in Krista's journey towards recovery.

Have you ever wondered if stress can make you sick?

The answer is yes, stress can definitely make you sick.

When you experience stress, your body releases hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, which can have negative effects on your immune system. This can leave you more susceptible to illnesses such as colds and the flu.

In addition, stress can also affect your overall health and well-being.

It can lead to the following issues:

  • high blood pressure

  • heart disease

  • mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression

It’s important to take steps to manage stress in your life, such as practicing relaxation techniques like meditation or yoga, getting regular exercise, and prioritizing self-care. By doing so, you can help protect your physical and mental health and live a happier, healthier life.

Some of these include exercise, meditation, spending time outdoors, getting enough sleep, and talking to a trusted friend or family member. It's important to prioritize self-care and take steps to manage stress in a healthy way.
