The How and Why of Stress in Our Bodies
We always think of our minds and bodies as separate entities, but they’re so much more connected than you think! That’s why signs and symptoms of stress often show up as physical, bodily symptoms, sometimes before we even mentally register the fact that we’re stressed out! In this episode, we talk about why these reactions happen, what to look out for and what we can do to better manage them.
