AAAHHH!!! I can't handle the stress!

Do you sometimes feel completely burned out with nothing left to give? Do you suffer from stress due to work, health, family, school, or some other seemingly endless challenge in your life? The accumulation of each of our little daily stressors over our lifetime can negatively affect our long-term mental and physical health. It is estimated that as many as 80 percent of physician visits may be stress-related. Without knowing how to reduce stress, we leave ourselves susceptible to life-threatening illness, disease, and just plain unhappiness.

Technology is here to make our lives simpler, yet many of the new technological breakthroughs have actually added tremendous amounts of stress to our lives. The eight-hour day has become obsolete, and with cell phones, PDAs, and computers we are continually connected to our jobs. Our free time to relax has been squeezed out. Without the necessary free time to recuperate from our busy days, we become stressed.

This new informative blog will help you with great stress relieving ideas through new postings each week. Our first posting will be in early June. Come on back and see if we can help you!
