What Causes You Stress?

This week my focus has been on stress and stress management because it is can cause flares and inflammation with our autoimmune disorders.

As adults, we can really stress out about something and make it so big and terrible in our minds that when the time comes around to face the stressing situation, the situation ends up not being as bad as we had imagined. Getting stressed out about the “it” ends up being for nothing. We have never solved any problems by worrying or stressing over them.

Stressful thinking can over take our minds and cause us to see everything through a negative filter.

Stress can cause harmful effects on our bodies:

  • Hair Loss
  • Poor Digestion
  • Depression
  • Irregular Periods
  • Insomnia
  • Weight Gain
  • Acne Breakouts
  • Reduced Sex Drive
  • Autoimmune Disorders

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

    Love your post! It is strange that some people can read about what stress does to the body and they get even more stressed. I am one of those people! So glad you added these Bible verses! Thank you for this!
