To effectively combat stress, you need to activate your body’s natural relaxation response which is the process of reversing the fight or flight response of the body that triggers stress hormones, cortisol, adrenaline, increases the heart rate, blood pressure, suppresses the immune/digestive system which is not healthy for use in the long term.
There are many ways we can learn to properly relax – not just by sitting down to watch T.V.
