What is stress?

Everyone experiences stress in their lives to some degree. It’s your mind’s and body’s responses to your responsibilities and the happenings in your life that require your attention. Even though stress itself is unavoidable, you have control over your stress response.

Short-term stress may not have a lasting impact, but chronic stress can. In fact, it affects your body in ways you probably wouldn’t expect. Chronic stress can lead to the following:

  • Headaches
  • Body aches
  • High blood pressure
  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • A weaker immune system

What is stress management?

Stress management is a collection of strategies dedicated to reducing the impact of stress on your life and well-being. It can help you avoid the physical effects of stress, like aches and pains or low immunity.

Dr. Wilson works closely with you to figure out ways of managing your stress. What works for you might not work for someone else, and personalized care is a key part of stress management. Dr. Wilson considers your current lifestyle, the stressors in your life, and the mental and emotional impacts of your stress.
