It’s a new season (new month, New Year) and a time of new beginnings and fresh starts, a time to make choices about improving your health. One of the best ways to bring wellness into your world is to decrease the level of stress you experience on a daily basis. Why is reducing stress so important? The American Association of Family Physicians reports that two-thirds of all doctor visits are due to stress-related ailments. It’s also believed that 80 to 90 percent of all diseases are stress-related. Although most of us think of deadlines and commitments when we think of stress, stress has many other causes. It can be triggered by emotions — anger, fear, worry, grief, depression or even guilt. This program can also include a discussion on… Are Americans Losing Their Compassion?… or we can make this an entire radio show topic.
And stress can actually lead to high blood pressure, heart problems, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, headaches, and other illnesses and chronic health conditions. If you want to avoid these problems, follow Susan’s 8 steps to relaxation and bring health and wellness to your world.
