Overview

Nothing takes its toll on the body like stress. In addition to the mental damage that it causes, stress is also linked to many diseases, including cancer. Unfortunately, in today's world, most of us are experiencing a stressful life with no way to get out of it - or so we think. We continue the merry-go-round of stress and often look to pills or even self-medication to solve the problem of stress for us. We joke that we are "stressed out" or "running on stress" when in reality, this is no joke. Stress is a killer, yet it is something that cannot be avoided. Stress management is the key to having a happier and more tranquil life.

Many of the techniques to manage stress and allow you to break free from the cycle of living a stress filled life are easy to learn and incorporate into your daily routine. Many of them have been discussed, but some are so basic that no one has ever spoken about them or even written about these techniques! Today, you will find that your doctor will be more inclined to give you medication instead of teaching you the proper ways to manage stress. Most people who experience a lot of stress in their daily lives have no idea how to control their reactions to stress or even that they are reacting to the stress at all.

Years ago, people never spoke about stress. If anyone got stressed out because of a certain situation, they took a drink. Today, people still use this timelesss and very harmful self-medicating way to alleviate their stress. Years ago, anyone who went to the doctor for stress was considered "crazy" and given powerful tranquilizers. Many people were hospitalized with a condition known as a "nervous breakdown" and considered to be "nuts."

Today, it seems to be almost a status symbol to be taking medication for stress or anxiety or depression, all of which are related. You can see by the ads on television for various medications that this is far from rare. Millions of people are seeking such medications to manage their stress. We all want the "instant cure" that can only come from a pill. Or are there better ways?

This book has tips to help you alleviate stress.

If you are one of the many people who want to alleviate your stress, you can learn some simple techniques to help you get out of the vicious cycle of leading a stressful life. Your stressful life does not just affect you, but everyone around you. It affects your relationships as well as any children or co-workers. Most of all, it can actually make you physically ill.

Do you really want to go through the rest of your life feeling "stressed out?" Do you like the idea of feeling "out of control" and that everything in life is a trial? Perhaps it is time for you to confront this situation and seek help to restore some sort of balance in your life and break free from this cycle.

There are many facets to stress. Stress manifests itself in many differnet ways and can be either self induced or something that occurs in life. We can never eliminate stress from our lives as stressful situations are part of life. However, we can learn to react to stress in a positive manner and take control of the situation rather than allowing the stress to remain in control. This book will teach you different tips as well as old secrets on how to identify the stressors in your life as well as learn to manage them.
