In today's crazy fast paced world, natural stress relief is needed more than ever.
Distress affects every area of your life - mental, physical and spiritual. It affects your relationships, how you handle your finances, even what you eat and how you sleep. It affects every cell in your body and over time can make you sick.
Because there are different types and levels of dis-stress, you need a variety of remedies and techniques to deal with it. There are helpers for acute (in the moment) stresses and chronic (long term) events. There are remedies to protect your body from the effects of distress and techniques to help you neutralize the triggers that start the cycle.
Holistic stress remedies can help you avoid many health conditions now blamed on dis-stress. At least 85% of illness has roots in mental, physical or chemical stress on the mind and body.
Some of these natural stress relief practices are best used every day, even several times a day. Others can be used as needed. As you read the articles and watch the videos you'll naturally resonate with some methods, and not with others. This may even change from time to time. That's fine.
The important thing is to start learning, practicing and using the methods now. Then, when you need them, you have beneficial habits established. They become a natural part of your daily life.
Making natural stress and anxiety relief remedies part of your life is a major part of holistic healing and wellness. They give you a powerful arsenal to bring more calmness and relaxation into your life - which is a very good thing for your health.
Learn about mental stress and how it affects your mind and body. Chronic stress ages you and contributes to disease and dis-ease.
You may be tempted to skip this part and go right to the relaxation techniques. Please don't. When you understand how your brain and body respond to distressing triggers you will be in a much better position to choose the best holistic stress remedies to help yourself through it. And when you remember what being stressed out is doing to your body and quality of life, you will be motivated to do something about it.
