Hi! Welcome to Week 3, where we’re going to look closer at how our lifestyle affects inflammation, specifically how stress and fatigue play a role in inflammation. It’s no coincidence that as people report higher levels of stress, we’re also seeing higher rates of chronic inflammation.
Similarly, this excess stress affects how we sleep (or, more accurately, don’t sleep!). Since sleep is when our bodies recharge, rejuvenate, and heal, missing out on sleep also affects chronic inflammation in the body.
