Stress, Sound Physical & Mental Health

Definition of stress:
Stress can be defined as a state of physical and mental tension caused by certain external or internal factors in a person's life.

The cause of stress are varied and numerous, and so are people's responses to them. Stress is a part of human condition, maintaining alertness for life, and, to some extent, is unavoidable.

Stress affects our body and mind. Both body and mind should be healthy. You cannot have a healthy body without a healthy mind; neither can you maintain a healthy mental attitude or think accurately if your body is unwell.

Let us discuss about the mind. Probably the most important single quality necessary to sound mental health is a POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE and all that involves.

Two of the most destructive forces in the human mind are FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) and its close counterpart, ANXIETY. They kill enthusiasm, destroy faith, blind vision and destroy harmony and peace of mind - all qualities necessary for a POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE.

Useful quotes:

" It's not hard work that kills. It's not competition. It does not even have to count all that money that kills. What kills is not having control over your live". By Dr.Estelle R. Ramey, Nationally Known Endocrinologist.

" Worry affects the circulation - the heart, the glands, the whole nervous system. I have never known a man who died from overwork, but many who died from doubt" by Charles Mayo, Famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

Hints:

Relaxation and rest are essential to sound health: If worry keeps you from resting or relaxing, it can be doubly damaging. If you have trouble relaxing, remember that the conscious mind is a selecting mechanism. We choose the things we concentrate on. If we concentrate out thoughts and energies on a hobby or diversion, we forget the worries of the day and relax.

Another important aspect of maintaining sound health is of course, nutrition.
