A stress management strategy is crucial for a healthy and happy life, a new study has found.
The authors of the study said stress can cause a range of health issues, from mood swings to obesity.
It is not uncommon for people to struggle with a variety of symptoms including:Nausea and vomitingDry mouthSymptoms of anxiety and depressionDepression and stress can have long-lasting effects on the body, affecting the way you function, our experts say.
The stressor can also impact your health, affecting your blood sugar levels, heart health, immune system, cognition and mood.
The study, which looked at over 20,000 people, found stress can increase your risk of developing diabetes and obesity.
Dr Susan Janson, a professor of health and exercise science at the University of NSW, said: “We all know that stress can negatively affect the immune system.
It is also associated with higher rates of obesity.”
There is no doubt that a stress-induced stress response can impact health.””
We have a lot to learn from our own personal experiences, but the research on stress is becoming clearer and clearer,” she said.
Dr Janson said that if you are struggling with anxiety, depression or stress, you should take a mental health first.”
If you’re suffering from anxiety or depression, try and relax, do some light physical activity and be mindful of your body,” she advised.”
Try to avoid the triggers and try to reduce your stress level to a more manageable level.
“The researchers found that people who had experienced at least one of the symptoms listed above had a higher risk of becoming obese.
For the study, published in the journal Diabetes Care, they examined data from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, which is the largest survey of health professionals in Australia.
In this study, participants were asked about their stress and their levels of depression, anxiety and related health conditions.
They also looked at how much each of these conditions contributed to their overall health.”
People who had been exposed to stress had an increased risk of obesity, particularly if they had had stressors in the past,” Dr Janson told ABC Radio Melbourne.
Dr Danyal Shahid, a research fellow at the Institute of Public Health at the Australian National University, said that stress has been linked to many chronic health conditions, including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.”
For many people, it’s the first thing they go through when they get diagnosed,” she told ABC radio.”
The stress may be related to other things, but it may also be the first one that triggers stress and leads to health problems.
“When you’re stressed, your immune system is under stress, and you may be getting more and more stress, so your body has less capacity to fight off other infections.”
Dr Shahid said there is evidence that stress is also linked to the development of obesity in children.
She said there were also strong links between stress and depression.
“This study also found that children with chronic stress had higher rates (of obesity),” she said, “which is probably related to the stress in their childhood.”
She said it was important to remember that people do not have to be chronically stressed to develop obesity.
