Anxiety and depression can have a significant impact on your physical health. People with anxiety and depression are at an increased risk for developing chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
One of the main reasons why anxiety and depression affect your physical health is because these conditions lead to unhealthy behaviors. People with anxiety and depression are more likely to smoke, drink alcohol, and eat unhealthy foods. They are also less likely to exercise and get the recommended amount of sleep.
Anxiety and depression can also affect your physical health because they cause inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a process that occurs when the body's immune system responds to injury or infection. It is believed that inflammation plays a role in the development of many chronic health conditions.
