Stress affects people of all ages and all walks of life

Stress affects people of all ages and all walks of life, especially with jobs becoming more stressful, so does family life. The word has become such a part of our everyday language, but what does it really mean? It means being in a state of high tension which, if not controlled, can eventually be the precursor of more serious physical or mental illness.

Stress is more often referred to as nervous tension. A stressful situation is one in which a person feels so much pressure that they feel unable to cope. This condition is becoming so common among the symptoms treated by the medical profession, that it is now seriously acknowledge to the point of assembling many symposia and congresses on the subject. It is recognized as a serious threat to our health, as far as even being a potential killer, and we must pay attention to mastering it before it masters us. School children are now also experiencing stress as a result of that passed down from parents.

Stress subsequently leads to chronic fatigue, depression and need for pharma pills, alcohol and drugs.

Stress has presently become a way of life for many people. Its effect is cumulative and becomes harmful when we cannot cope.

One must learn self-discipline, and strengths-based theories to support an individual’s well-being, so they can overcome many attacks that can be experienced. I believe self – regulation is important, it is not so much what happens to us as much as the way in which we choose to react/respond to a given situation or person, to free ourselves.


What changes in your diet can reduce oxidative stress? Avoid red mead, all refined and processed foods (white flour etc., fried foods, substitute honey for sugar. Observe food combining principles, it is best not to eat carbohydrates with proteins at the same meal

Overload stress can lead to harsh circumstance, and a complete disconnection with your being. I like to encourage, a change of diet, some leisure time, a short holiday, to help break the routine and regain a fresh and balanced perspective of life again.
