Hello everyone,

Following our latest article on how anxiety affects the body (Anxiety: What is it and how does it affect the body?), I thought I would open this discussion so we can talk about the link between mental and physical health!

What do you think?

Have you noticed that your mental health has taken a toll on your physical health? Or is it more the reverse - that your physical health impacts your mental health? How do you cope with either situation?

Feel free to share here!

Take care,
Courtney

 I want to say in my own situations that it definitely does effect the body as well.

I try to describe it to my girlfriend and friends that it feels like a black hole in my chest and at its worst will feel like it’s consuming my whole body.

Yes my physical health has affected my mental health and vise versa. It has it own affect on it and it shows when I am not doing good mentally it shows when my sugars go to high something is wrong. When my Physical health is acting up then usually my mental health goes down. They go hand in hand. It always does.
