Pains caused by hurry: know what they are and how to avoid them
When we are faced with a stressful event, such as a job change, a relative's illness, or a tiring journey, it is easier to see how the body feel. But factors that we face in our daily lives also influence.
We live in a hurry and this run-run has a price. We are tense to wake up and not lose an appointment, get to work on time, turn in work on time and so on. It all starts with a little discomfort, then a little pain comes here and there, every other day, until the symptoms have become constant and repetitive.
How the body reacts to daily agitation
Haste triggers the sympathetic nervous system so that the body can respond to stimuli more quickly. For the brain, this is the same mechanism that we unintentionally trigger when we are in a dangerous situation, preparing the body to flee or fight, releasing cortisol and adrenaline from the adrenals. These are the ones that accelerate heartbeat and breathing, increase blood pressure, and contract muscles.
This is a reaction that should be fleeting, but which is becoming commonplace by daily agitation. This overload has consequences that may be fleeting or become chronic if we continue with this active mechanism for a long time.
Excess hormones become toxic. Cortisol, for example, causes us to store triglycerides, fat that alters insulin, and that resistance can lead to diabetes. Have you seen how many people have diabetes in the world? The mechanism further decreases the function of leukocytes, which are the defense cells, and may leave the door more open to viruses and bacteria.
Repeated releases of stress hormones inhibit the release of serotonin , a substance that activates feelings of well-being. Other effects may be associated with increased risk of stroke, high incidence of headache, insomnia, increased sensitivity to premenstrual tension, decreased sexual desire and even temporary impotence.
Thyroid dysfunctions, which may cause variations weight problems, skin problems, decreased cognitive performance, gastrointestinal problems and even inattention, who no longer got more distracted by the rush, right? And with distraction, there are falls and twists. Bones become weaker and muscles become stiffer. The most common back pain, called myofascial pain, often occurs in those who live with the busy schedule. Or have you ever bumped into someone who is complaining about having a muscle node in an area that has accumulated tension?
If in the long run, the brain gets used to receiving these impulses, and even if the problem has already been solved, pain persists, it is necessary to do a treatment to unsettle the brain of the pain.
But you can change this process and avoid the chronic pain and other effects of the run-runs on the body.
If discomfort, such as pains in the spine, cervical pain and headache, are more frequent, it is fundamental to change habits to improve the quality of life. Start by taking simple steps, but they can make a lot of difference:

- Plan your day with longer intervals between activities
- If you have the opportunity, take a 20-minute nap or simply relax your body in the middle of the day.
- To live better is to live without pain!
