Stress is the silent killer. It gradually wears down our bodies, minds, and spirits. It manifests itself in the form of disease, rapid aging, and pain, but make no mistake: it is the catalyst, if not the cause, of many ailments we have as adults. Among other things, it contributes to:
- High Blood Pressure
- Heart Disease
- Erectile Dysfunction
In short, it lowers our immune system, and releases a torrent of hormones into our bodies, meant to give us strength in times of fight or flight. But we are not fighting or fleeing. We are overworking, getting stuck in traffic, dealing with noise and congestion, with often no immediate release for these hormones to be worked out of our system.
Stress management is essential to leading a healthy, productive life. Exercise, Breathing techniques, Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, and Reiki all provide a means for reducing stress, and giving us a healthier and more peaceful outlook on life.
