Viewpoint Article: Chronic Stress and our Health

Viewpoint Article: Chronic Stress and our Health

Some stressors are abrupt, loud, and impossible to miss: a lost job, death of a loved one, a hurricane or other natural disaster. Most of the events in life that bring us stress are more long-term, creeping in slowly so as to go undetected: an extra weekly Bible study added to an already full agenda, a long commute to work every day, financial struggles that don’t ever seem to improve.

Unchecked stress can become a chronic problem, affecting our mental, spiritual, and even physical health. But we are not helpless victims, with no recourse to protect ourselves. We don’t have to live like this. We can choose a better way.

This week, instead of  blog post, I am linking to my most recent article, published in Point Loma Nazarene University’s Viewpoint magazine. I hope you’ll share it with others who you think would find encouragement in it.
