Although today stress is considered a natural and normal part of our daily existence and necessary for our survival, most people don’t cope with stress well. To prevent the negative impact of your stress affecting you and those around you, it is important to know and understand stress related symptoms.
* Just released … my book, Stress Gone! How to Identify and Reduce Stress easily
Stress is far more serious than people realise. Known as a ‘silent killer’, and as confirmed by the medical fraternity, stress is responsible for approx 90% of all illness and disease. Regardless of whether your stress is big or small, real or perceived, the body responds the same way eliciting the fight-flight stress response.
For most people, this happens multiple times a day and often below one’s awareness – week after week, month after month, year after year: that is the danger of stress. Everyone responds to stress differently and in their own unique way. This makes stress more difficult to discern, and detect the negative side effects.
Having said that, not all stress is actually negative. Sounds paradoxical, but there are positive benefits to stress i.e. catalyst for change, motivator, inspiration, early warning signal etc – this I cover in greater detail in my book, Stress Gone!
When stress takes its toll, it can be overwhelming, debilitating, and at times have dire consequences too. Stress can literally wreck havoc in peoples’ lives, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In order to avoid these consequences, effective and daily stress management is essential for health and vitality, not only for your own benefit but for your loved ones, friends and colleagues too.
There are simple exercises and techniques to do just that: quickly, easily and effectively, which is covered extensively in my book, Stress Gone! In the book I detail 16 simple exercises, 50 strategies and provide access to an audio download and workbook too.
