Simply by living a modern life – full of constant, but not immediately life-threatening stresses, your body is tricked into feeling like it is constantly in danger. This triggers a response in the body by releasing “fight or flight” stress hormones.
Stress hormones contribute to your feelings of:
- Irritability and unhappiness
- Fatigue and lethargy
- Chronic and acute physical illnesses
- Apathy and depression
- Inability to concentrate and think clearly
