Ignoring the signs of stress can lead to further complications. Stress can offset normal body maintenance, and has been linked to numerous illnesses and bothersome symptoms. It can lead to weight gain and/or inflammation that, if left unchecked, could eventually contribute to the development of conditions like heart disease or type 2 diabetes. Stress may also negatively affect digestive function and comfort. Furthermore, stress can eat away at your immune defense and leave you more vulnerable.
