The week following the murder of George Floyd was a blur. I was wrapped up in the news footage, media reporting, and social media commentary for days on end. It was tiring, it was stressful, it was upsetting, it was encouraging. A roller coaster ride of emotions that you may have experienced as well.
We all know too much stress is bad for us, but do you know why?
For a long time, I was skeptical about the effect of stress on my overall health and wellness. It just didn’t make sense to me that what I thought was a feeling—a mental or emotional reaction—could affect me physically.
