Stress: A Longevity Drain

By April 16, 2013

Follow me on:

Make no mistake about it: stress can shorten your lifespan.  Far from simply an uncomfortable psychological phenomenon, stress of all types - marital, financial, at your workplace - takes a physical toll on your body and your health.

This is Stress Awareness Day, a date earmarked to boost awareness of how stress and anxiety can negatively affect your well-being, your relationships, your work performance, and your longevity in general.  There are such valuable and effective techniques for relieving stress, from taking a "mini-vacation" from work in the middle of the day using a brief mini-meditation or self-hypnosis method (either of which can be done in the privacy of a bathroom stall - no co-workers need see you!), to tips on how to sleep better.  All of these practices can help keep you resilient in the face of the barrage of demands and deadlines that make up a typical day.

For a look at our Guide to Stress Elizabeth Scott's valuable site, which is filled with advice on how to relieve stress and live a more relaxed and fulfilling life, click here. Your body and mind will thank you.
