There are many things that have adverse effects to our health than we may imagine. As much as we may eat healthy or exercise to look after our health, there are additional measures that we can do to take care of our health. We will not be in optimum health if we are not in a safe environment and our body senses danger. That is why we have to be safe from dangerous places with potential terror attacks to ensure that we remain healthy. Some of the ways a safe environment can affect our health includes:
Healthy mind healthy body
Most of the time, our body responds to the state of our minds. If our minds are healthy then it will mean that our bodies will in turn be healthy. When we are constantly worrying about our safety and wellbeing and we are not sure of what will happen next because we are in a risky environment, it makes our minds unhealthy hence our bodies unhealthy too. Worry has a way of affecting blood flow to the brain which makes us to have fatigue and be less productive. Worry makes the heart not to pump blood well which means there will be insufficient supply of oxygen in the body which will lead to a weak body due to fatigue and low energy drive.
Stress free is equal to more health
The truth is if we live in terrorist potential areas we will be in constant stress because we are not sure of tomorrow. When the body is stressed then it will not be able to function well which creates a good environment for diseases. When we are under stress we are likely to have: anxiety, restlessness, irritability or anger, and sadness or depression which is not good for our bodies. Many people react differently to stress but some of the common reactions include: over eating or under eating leading to weight loss or weight gain, depression and angry outbursts, drug abuse, withdrawal and less exercising among many others. This leads to respiratory problems, digestion problems, acne and other skin conditions among many others. This is because when stress hormones are released it will affect the normal functioning of the body which may either inhibit the release of some hormones or over release of some hormones. That is why stress is linked to sickness. Stress has also been linked with headaches, muscle pain, and sleep problems.
Our environment has a major impact on our health and thus it is important to choose a safe environment. It is due to this reason that there are some organization that are committed towards fighting terror attacks to make sure that the environment is safe for everybody. They include Foundation for Defense of Democracies. With its efforts, there is a chance that in future there will be a low rate of terror attacks or no terror attacks at all. Choose a safe environment, it matters!
