Did You Know...
Stress doesn't directly cause headaches - it's our body's reaction to stress that triggers them. When we believe we're in a dangerous situation, our heart and breathing rate, blood flow, and blood pressure all increase rapidly.
That's intense stuff! Today, we can find ourselves reacting to the pressure of giving a big speech in front of a large crowd with the same internal reactions as if something truly threatening (like a lion!) were chasing us.
In fact, common modern-day triggers for heightened stress include lack of exercise, sleep, downtime, and even physical tension - things we all tend to experience semi-regularly. So, if it's been some time since your last tension-soothing adjustment, what are you waiting for?
