Major Issues with Your Appearance
It is no secret that stress causes those premature wrinkles on our once smooth and supple faces or that hair prematurely greys due to an inordinate amount of constant stress. Stress causes the body to stop producing melanin which in turn leads to greying hair, so adding grey hair to premature wrinkles what do you have? That’s right – a body that looks 20 years older than it really is.
Health Related Risks Directly Attributed to Stress
Then there are those health related risks that have definitely been attributed to stress. Consider the fact that just a generation ago women were less likely to suffer fatal heart attacks than men but since they have entered the professional workforce in increasing numbers year after year, women are now almost as likely as men to suffer from heart attacks and strokes. From poor digestion to impaired thinking, stress can have serious consequences on the state of our health, mental as well as physical.
