Got stress? If so, you're not alone. Stress is highly prevalent in our society and follows most of us throughout the day, causing anxiety, high blood pressure, difficulty in our relationships and just an overall feeling of blah. Stress can be beneficial at times. When we have to follow through on a project, get a task completed, or run from a bear, it can be most useful. Though stress originates in our heads, it travels through our body wreaking havoc. Your stress is your thoughts and comes from resistance to a current situation that we often have little control over. It also shows up when we let our thoughts travel to regret over the past, or worry about the future. This too we have little control over. So, it appears that our stress may have more to do with our lack of control than it does over what is actually occurring. Let's see if we can bring that control back to where it belongs with some stress management advice.
