Are You Stressed?
First, I want to share with you that:
73% of Americans regularly experience psychological symptoms caused by stress
33% feel they are living with extreme stress
48% report lying awake at night due to stress
54% say stress has caused them to fight with people they care about
9% of the US population suffers from depression and the majority of those who suffer have become so accustomed to the feelings of hopelessness, despondency and/or guilt they’re living with that it feels “normal”. And depression is frequently a side effect of stress.
In addition to depression, stress also causes:
- extreme emotional reactions
- muscle tension
- poor diet
- unhealthy weight gain or loss
- skin issues
- teeth grinding
- trouble focusing
- consistently being late
- reduced sex drive
- alcohol and/or substance abuse
- and forgetfulness forgetfulness
to name, in all seriousness, only a few.
These side effects clearly have an impact on our relationships, job performance, productivity, parenting and, most importantly, our general state of being and ability to enjoy life.
I’m a firm believer that the quality of our lives has very little to do with what’s going on around us and almost everything to do with what’s going on inside of us. And when we’re stressed, our quality of life becomes seriously diminished.
Are you stressed? How does your stress affect your relationships, job performance, and your ability to enjoy your life?
The physical and mental health benefits of frequent and consistent exercise have been widely known and supported by doctors, psychotherapists, alternative practitioners, coaches and thousands of scientific studies.
These science and medical communities have also been rapidly jumping on board with spiritual and yoga communities in promoting that mindfulness, specific breathing practices and meditation play a major role in reducing stress and improving your quality of life.
