How You can Win against Stress

Jan 18, 2008
It may be hard for some people to find their way to wellness and perfect health in today's fast changing world. Sometimes the lifestyle we are used to does not leave much time for us to relax and care about ourselves. Physical health is priceless, and it is really difficult to achieve a state of complete health and wellness without being a bit organized.

Organizing your life doesn't mean to get stuck in a routine. On the contrary, it means to be aware of your working and obligation times, but also have moments to dedicate to yourself. These relaxation moments help your health by reducing one of the most harmful factors: stress.

Stressed people tend to have health problems more often than non stressed people. When you are stressed, your body can not function in an optimal way; it can not absorb and metabolize certain nutrients and produces and retains more toxins than it does when you are not under stressful conditions.

Your immune system is also affected by stress, making you more vulnerable to external agents like fungal or bacterial infections, as well as other health problems.

The key to prevent stress from appearing in your life is to keep a balance between your obligations and your needs. For instance, if you must work overtime during a couple of days, give yourself permission to go out and enjoy a movie, or a concert, or any other activity that will get you out of your everyday routine.

Avoid taking your work home whenever possible; after all you don't take your own personal activities to the office, do you? Dedicate one day a week to yourself, and when that day comes just do whatever you want. You may wake up early and go fishing, or stay in bed until late just enjoying a good book; you can do anything as long as it keeps your mind away from your obligations. That way, your mind will be fresh and ready to continue working or studying when you resume your everyday life.

Some people like to play a sport once or twice a week, and some take the time to enjoy long walks before dinner. What you can do to get unstressed is up to you, but always remember to give a break to your routine. A fresh mind is a productive mind, and a productive mind is a treasure you want to keep forever.

Achieving wellness is not difficult; you just have to remember that your brain must rest as much as your body, and recreation plays an important role in getting "unplugged" from your day-by-day problems.

Getting rid of stress is a major step towards a perfect health. Keep that in mind and you will live better and longer.
