Here's a simple check of your anxiety level: try to lower your shoulders. If you could if your shoulders were tense your body is in defense physiology. You are ready to defend yourself against attack. But you aren't in danger you are supposedly relaxed while reading this paper. Dipping your shoulders is just one clue that you are not relaxed you are "stressed out". Other stress clues include sensations of a "knot" in your stomach or your heart pounding, feeling tense or nervous most of the time, habitual foot-bouncing or finger-tapping, teeth-grinding, jaw-clenching or coming "unglued" easily. Unless you are in a crisis situation, you should be reasonably relaxed.
Raised shoulders mean tight muscles that are constantly poised for defense. The fuse on your disease-producing time bomb is getter shorter.
What happens during a Stress Response?
Look at the list of physiological changes (increased heart rate, blood pressure , vasoconstriction, increased blood fats, sugars and clotting factors) and ask yourself if this isn't heart disease and stroke waiting to happen. What about decreased serotonin hormone levels and increased stress hormone levels which produce depression; fatigue; anxiety; memory, learning and attention deficits; decreased sex drive; and accelerated aging (lack of growth hormone)? What about insulin and type II diabetes? What about chronically suppressed immune function and bone density decreases associated with cortisol levels? Virtually every major health issue is addressed here. Hans Selye, M.D referred to these as "diseases of adaptation". The World Health Organization refers to them as "diseases of civilization or "lifestyle diseases".
