Soreness in the Body and Weekend Headaches

When you feel tense, your muscles tighten. Tight muscles lead to sore muscles. Some people feel soreness in their back. Others may experience soreness in a leg or arm. Should this happen to you, you may not feel like getting out of bed or performing your usual tasks. A body that feels like this is suffering from stress. It’s important to get your body to relax and unwind. Try listening to music or take a soothing bath. Go to the store and pick out scented body wash or candles to help you set the mood. If you tend to get headaches on Saturday or Sunday, it may be due to a decrease in stress.

    Are there any benefits to having certain types of stresses? If so, what would they be?

    • Dr.Lam says:

      Stress is a necessary part of life. The body does not recognize the difference between good or bad stress as the biochemical balance takes care of any stress. The key is the perception , intensity and duration.
      For example, the body reacts and put out more cortisol under perceived stress in comparison to actual stress when it arrives. Most of us that live in the urban world faces more emotional and physical stress than our body is used to. Reducing overall stress is therefore helpful for most of us. Remember that having “no” stress can be a form of stress as far as the body is concern. Learn to listen to your body. When you live a simple happy life, that usually is a good level to be at.
