Leading a busy life, Quality “MEE” Time sounds like a “luxury” for many of us. But what if it is “essential” for our well-being?
A recent study published in Molecular Psychiatry suggests stress can override the good effects of a healthy diet. “Healthy eating” is a great resolution–yet, even with super healthy meals, when you are stressed out, “The stress seemed to boost inflammation,” said Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, director of the Institute for Behavioral Medicine.
Higher inflammation levels are linked to an increased risk of serious health issues, such as cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, asthma, chronic pain, arthritis, and cancer. Stress can also promote weight gain by altering metabolism and slowing down calorie-burning.
The findings add to the evidence that stress is a powerful player when it comes to influencing our health.
