Affects of Stress on Your Health| Kayla Banks | Lady Luxe Life
Affects of Stress on your Health has become front line in studies and research. It seems as if everyone I know is going nonstop, without taking a breath and it’s playing havoc on our culture. Today is National Stress Awareness Day so I thought it would be a good day to do research on this topic.
Mayo Clinic has a great article on these affects, and I thought I’d share a little bit with you here:
Common effects of stress include on your Body, Mood and Behavior.

This article went on to talk about way to manage our stress, and I thought they had some great examples:
