EP 46 - Mind-Wandering Stress Could Lead to Unnecessary Rx
Our minds tend to wander at least half of the time. A wandering mind is thinking about other things, not the task at hand. Most of those wandering thoughts are spend on negative things.

Herbal pharmacist David Foreman classifies negative mind wandering as stress. Digestive disorders, headaches, muscle tension, short-term memory loss, immune issues and heart disease can be impacted by stress. Prescription medication is designed to treat these symptoms, but those medications do not address the source.

It’s hard to stay focused when you’re overwhelmed with worry.

Practicing gratitude, mindfulness and prayer can aid with the stress.
