Learn How to Alleviate Stress

Stress is a natural emotion. It is your response to a troubling and upsetting situation. Worldwide we are all facing difficult times; Terrorism and economic downturns create fears of impaired safety, loss of earnings and debt. These fears affect our health, thinking and relationships. It seems like practically everything we once knew is changing at a pace beyond which most people can adjust to in a happy and healthy way. Instead the human emotional landscape is being filled with fear and worry. Research indicates that 35% of illness starts with worrying about “what if” while 75% of doctor visits are stress related.
Stress will always be with us because contrary to popular belief, stress is not just pressure from outside – those are the stressors, it is also your individual response to those stressors.
