Stress is Contagious – BMC on WXYZ

Ronnie Hormel, therapist at the Birmingham Maple Clinic, recently visited WXYZ to discuss research indicating that stress can spread from person to person. Studies have found that cortisol, the body’s stress hormone, measurably rises when in contact with a stressed person. Ronnie then goes on to offer some tips on how to recognize stress, keeping your stress levels low in high stress situations or environments, and how to handle stress in kids.

If you feel that stress is chronically affecting the life of you or a loved one, please contact Birmingham Maple Clinic for a consultation.
