There is not a person in the world that does not experience stress. Stress is a part of our everyday life.
Consider the following:
43% of all adults suffer from the adverse effects of stress
Stress causes headaches, heart problems, skin conditions, high blood pressure, asthma, arthritis, depression and anxiety
75-90% of all doctor office visits are due to stress related issues (That's amazing isn't it!)
OHSA has classified stress a hazard of the workplace, costing the American industry over $150 billion a year
Emotional disorders are often due to chronic untreated stress
Over time, stress can do tremendous damage to your health and general sense of well being.
When your body is under duress, your cells actually change shape and become unhealthy. In turn the delicate tissues in your body become more susceptible to free radical damage (the process that causes aging.) Sickness and disease now have an "easy way in."
It"s a dangerous cycle that leaves you vulnerable to countless health problems.
Living with constant stress will literally wear your body out. Stress hormones will weaken its ability to fight or prevent serious diseasesincluding cancer, heart disease, diabetes and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. Not to mention making you more prone to colds, infections and other distressing illnesses.
"Stress hormones can badly upset the biochemical balances in our body. That can impair our immune system and leave us open to invasions of cancer cells and dangerous infections." Dr. Bruce McEwen, Former Director Rockefeller University"s Neuroendocrine Laboratory
It"s true. Stress kills.

Stress isn't something you catch, like a cold. Stress is something you create by the way you think and feel about a situation. And because we know that, when we begin to control our thoughts, our emotions will begin to change. Let's take a for instance. Lets say you are angry about working late. And, if you think about it, all anger is because we feel something is "Unfair."
