Stress can affect much more than just your mental health. In addition to narrowing your ability to think clearly, function effectively, and enjoy life it can also have negative effects on your physical health as well. Stress is a part of life but it is something that can be managed and controlled to actually benefit you. Good stress can give a person the motivation to push themselves to be a little more efficient or to take a step out of their comfort zone.
If you are having trouble being able to distinguish between good and bad stress or turn one into the other is something our clinicians at Boca Behavioral Health will be happy to help with.
