The Damage Stress Does to Our Lives

For the majority of human existence we have lived in nature, we spend most of our time outdoors, we hunted for food and farmed the lands. We structured our life so that when the sun came up we rose up and when the sun went down we went to sleep. In today's modern world we are oblivious to nature and its surroundings.

In addition to loosing touch with nature, many of us are loosing many connections with people, in old times people used to spend their lifetime in one location with the same people, now we move from place to place, cutting ties with our friends and family. We have no idea how much damage stress causes to the quality of our lives, depletes our love for ourselves and others.

It has been estimated that more than seventy percent of visits to the doctor are stress related, over fifty percent of work related accidents are the result of overwhelming stress. The good news is that even though we are overwhelmed with cumulative stress our systems have the ability to recover and protect us from furthering our stresses.

This power comes from the ability to make a conscious choice to change the way we live every day, if you learn to relax and nurture your social, spiritual and physical needs you can alter your life for the better. So if you make the decision that you will not succumb to the negative side effects of stress you are on the road to living a more fulfilling life. You can begin to beat stress by not working so hard all the time and learn to rest, talk to a friend that you haven't talked to in a while or even maybe start going to church again.
