We listen to a variety of warnings from weather predictions to foods that are bad for us, so why do we not listen to our bodies when it gives us signs of stress?
Long ago stress helped save the caveman’s/woman’s life. It provided the adrenaline that gave him/her the strength to run from the dinosaur that was going to eat him/her. The major needs of that time were finding food to eat, shelter, and not being eaten by something bigger than you. Back then stress kept you alive, today, stress can kill you.
