stress and your immune system.

How Stress Impacts Your Immune System

Ever noticed you get sick more often when you’re stressed? There’s a reason for that.


Stress, especially when chronic, can significantly weaken your immune system. It triggers a stress response in the body, releasing hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, which, over time, can disrupt immune function.


This imbalance makes you more susceptible to infections and slows down the healing process. Stress can also lead to unhealthy habits like poor eating, less sleep, and less exercise, further weakening your immune defense.


The good news? You can mitigate these effects through stress management techniques like meditation, yoga, and deep breathing exercises. A balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep are also crucial.
