If you’re like me chances are that being happy and free of stress are high on your priorities.
No-one overly enjoys stress especially when it arrives unannounced and just doesn’t seem to go away.
Some stress is a natural and necessary part of being alive. But at times it takes over and all the lightness fun and joy normally a part of living a full life begins to slip away like sand falling through your hands. Prolonged stress whether in intimate relationships, at work, during a transitional stage like adolescence and mid-life or due to a life challenging experience can adversely affect our health and well-being.
The American Institute of Stress tells us that up to 90 percent of all health problems are stress-related.
