Stress has a profound effect on all areas of your life. It disrupts your emotional state by influencing your moods. Stress interferes with physical functions, making you susceptible to a number of health problems from coronary artery disease, irritable bowel and chronic fatigue syndrome. It narrows your ability to think clearly, function effectively and enjoy life.
Interestingly, stress is a part of everyday life. It comes with every job, relationship and family. You can’t run or hide from stress as it is always there. Since you can’t run from it, it’s important to learn how to work with it, which is what you will discover in this program. Did you know that it is your reaction to stress, not stress itself that causes difficulty and pain? The same mind and body that reacts to stress in a harmful way can respond in a relaxed way.
Learn what stress is, recognize the signs and symptoms of stress, how it affects your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. More importantly, get numerous tips an strategies to make stress work FOR you instead of against. Learn to tap into stress to feel better, have more energy, get more done and above all, enjoy life more fully. Learn to stand in the face of stress instead of running from it.
