Stress is one of the most common problems of our times. As the pace of modern life accelerates we all need to be more adaptable to uncertain circumstances, to fend for ourselves and look after our dependents. The causes of stress may include: workload, relationships, financial problems, caring for others and illness, amongst other things. The symptoms can include: eating disorders, stomach problems, headaches, backache, insomnia, anxiety, depression, anger or even panic attcks. In the long term, stress is linked to severe health problems.
What often makes stress so difficult is the feeling of being trapped by circumstances beyond your control. You may feel powerless to do anything to change their circumstances or afflicted by a sense of hopelessness. Levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, are raised suppressing the immune system, impairing cognitive function, and can contribute to weight problems and other serious medical problems. To make matters worse the stress often reduces your energy making it harder to take control of your life.
Wouldn’t you like to be calmer and more relaxed, without losing your motivation? To be more focussed on what you want than what you’re trying to avoid? Able to relax after work and get more enjoyment out of life?
