Being constantly exposed to high amounts of information, as well as living fast-paced city lives certainly make us susceptible to stress. This, in the long term, may cause serious health problems, both physical and mental. Mindfulness is a proven way to deal with stress.
The effects of stress are even becoming more common in younger ages. They are seen through mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and burnout just to name a few. Effects of long term stress can show in the form of physical symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, pain in different parts of the body, digestive issues, and many more.
What's scary is that many of us don't even notice that we're stressed, since our everyday worries don't feel too significant at the moment. However, as soon as we get the time to relax, we immediately catch a cold, or just feel completely drained and want to rest in front of the TV instead of taking up our hobbies again. These are very important signs of long-term stress that we tend to ignore. If we continue living in such a way, without changing anything, we face a high risk of developing the above-mentioned effects of stress on our body and the brain.
Mindfulness is a scientifically-proven way to deal with stress and relieve the possible effects of it. What's great is that you can do it both as a precaution to avoid all possible future stress effects or as stress relief if you're already feeling the effects.
