Research has shown that stress has overtaken the common cold to become the number one disease in the world. People are dying from stress-related ailments.
The quick combating of stress via tranquillisers or a sojourn to the wilderness for three days is a welcome and brief relief to the mind, body and spirit. Nevertheless, usually a short-lived solution. What we often do not realise is that stress can be made a friend rather than remain an enemy, and worked with more effectively from day-to-day.
In this age of technology and faster-bigger-better, we are far too apt to forget about ourselves as human, with systems that can and do go wrong when not properly taken care of. And are often only forcibly reminded when the damage we are doing manifests as a pain in the chest or we are diagnosed with stress-related diabetes and high blood pressure.
Realistically, stress cannot be eradicated but when you understand how it affects you, you can make it work for you. Unhealthy life styles can be changed. Stress-related diseases and disorders can be affected more positively. Learn to take better care of yourself and cope more effectively. All you need to learn and practice is how to do so to your best advantage.
