STRESS

We all seem to have it no matter what we do. People who are on the go doing the normal on the job routine, or staying home and taking care of a

family. What we need to know is how to handle the everyday " " STRESS SYNDROME "

Two much stress has a negative effect on nervous system. The sources can be physical, emotional, or

Psychological stress factor. Because stress can cause many symptoms, a Doctor may order medical tests, even if he suspects that stress is the

real problem. The following is a partial list of common manifestations of stress.

Now that I have taken you through all the nice little things that can happen. Lets talk about what you can do to keep yourself living the good life.

Visualization

Take a few minutes each day preferably at the same time. Turn on your favorite music, Sit, or lie down Place your hands with the palms up in a

comfortable position. Now, close your eyes. Let yourself think of something you really like. Mine is a Blue Rose that has just opened and I can

smell the beautiful fragrance. What's yours?

In doing this you are taking the time your body needs to relax. Music increases the endorphin levels (brain chemicals that lift your moods.

Then when things do get out of hand try to think of the peace you saw when you had your time alone. Just that second of thought could give your

body the charge it needs to cope.

FACTS & TIPS

Make a thing to do list. What is important to do first? Which is less important? Take time Spread things out so you have the time to start your

new "Life-Style " If your not worth it who is.

Make sure your list includes things you care about, visit with friends and talk share your ideas.

Correct diet, exercise, and nutrition play crucial roles in balancing the nervous system.

Start a balanced diet of fruit, vegetables, and whole grain products. The body's increased need for vitamin A, C, and for thiamin, riboflavin, and

other B Vitamins. Stress also prompts the Kidneys to increase the secretion of important minerals, like calcium, zinc, and magnesium.

Suggestion the best way to know if you are getting all you need from your diet is to have muscle testing

done buy a qualified Homeopathic Doctor. Or someone who knows "Touch for Health muscle testing can be done through them.
