In response, the brain sends out an SOS signal to the rest of the body – stress hormone levels increase, blood vessels constrict, blood pressure rises, and the immune system weakens. If the body experiences prolonged stress, heart disease and other stress-induced illnesses are a likely possibility. How then, can we stop the brain from responding to stress the same way?
