We all experience stress at one time or another. Sometimes stress is the result of major changes in our lives, such as redundancy, debts, wayward offspring, marriage, divorce or even moving home.
At other times stress can be more chronic in nature, meaning that the effects can be long lasting, even though the stressful event happened a long time ago.
How many times have you had an unpleasant incident? The initial incident happens once, but every time you think about it, it’s happening all over again, and if you tell someone about it, it’s happening all over again too! So, by the end of the week, you may have experienced or relived the same incident hundreds of times! Is it any wonder why you’re stressed over it? And yet it happened only once!
(An estimated 75 percent to 90 percent of all doctor visits are for stress-related issues.)

Uncontrolled, stress can lead to raised blood pressure, chest pains, headaches, insomnia and irritable bowel syndrome, together with many other symptoms. Stress also becomes harmful when people use alcohol, smoking and/or drugs to try and relieve their feelings.
From the first puff of smoke, your blood pressure goes up by 20% and you have released adrenaline. (Smoking does not relax you!)
Alcohol is a depressive substance, so if you are feeling down, this is not going to help anyone.
Drugs, recreational or prescribed, only treat the symptom and not the cause, and their effect is temporary.
The six leading causes of death in the western world are either caused or exacerbated by stress.
