Article # 600. STRESS


Millions of people are dealing with stress, anxiety and depression today due to a job loss, fear and worry about the economy, relationship issues, financial problems or unruly children that won’t listen or behave. To get rid of stress related to these debilitating issues, many people tend to rely on prescription medications, such as antidepressants or anti-anxiety pills. While these prescriptions medications work for a time, they come with several unpleasant or even dangerous side effects, and the benefits wear off over time so eventually you may have to switch to other types of medications.

The one thing most people don’t know and are not told by their doctors is that for most issues that result in bouts of stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as, fear, worry, sadness and anger is that you already have the tools inside of you to completely get rid of stress once and for all, and without the use of medications and their unpleasant and even dangerous side effects

What Causes Stress

Stress is natural response mechanism to difficult situation, and in some situations stress is actually helpful. I am sure you are now asking how can stress be helpful. Stress over getting a good grade in a class can motivate you to study harder and focus in class. When interviewing for a new job, stress will motivate you to learn about the company and managers you are interviewing for, write and ask good questions, have a perfect tailored resume, dress sharp and arrive on time. In these situations, stress is temporary and will usually subside after the event, and the associated energy continues to flow through you. When a person feels stress, this increases the production of stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol.

In normal situations, as the stressors are eliminated the production of stress hormones is reduced to normal levels. Stress becomes a problem when the energy associated with the stressors becomes stuck and no longer flows through you. The stuck energy presses against organs and tissue, and results in more serious health issues such as anxiety, insomnia, anger, depression and even disease when stress becomes chronic.

A common cause of stress and anxiety today is workplace productivity demands on employees and feeling devalued by managers and demanding bosses. Employees feel stress to perform well at work or risk being fired, which can lead to stress, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem.

Rather than taking dangerous prescription medications to reduce stress, you can actually eliminate stress and the causes of stress naturally. Subscribe to my blog to get the tips on how to eliminate stress completely.
