Stress Management

Our lives are filled with stress; there’s no question about it. Over time, this stress can build up and wreak havoc on both our mental and physical health, altering the delicate balance of hormones in your body. Some medicines can even alter your moods to make you feel more sensitive to stress. MedShadow shows you techniques like meditation and exercise for managing stress, and helps you identify when it’s time to talk to a doctor about anxiety or side effects from medications.
