Anxiety Attacks – What Do They Feel Like?

Anxiety attacks, or panic attacks, are episodes of intense panic or fear, which occur for no apparent reason. Anxiety attacks can occur suddenly and without warning – when this happens the sufferer generally experiences a feeling that their life is about to end. Sometimes, there is an obvious circumstance that causes the attack, like having to drive in heavy traffic or getting stuck in an elevator, but often times there is an unknown “trigger” that causes it.

An anxiety attack generally lasts for a few minutes, but can go on for as long as thirty minutes for some people, depending on how severe it is and how they cope with it. Many anxiety sufferers can feel one coming on, with a strange sense of nervousness just before one occurs. During an anxiety attack, a person feels such an intense fear that they often feel as if they will die of a heart attack or from not breathing. Many feel terrified that they will lose control in front of other people – worst yet endanger others if they are at work or driving a car. The physical symptoms of an anxiety attack seem so severe that the person experiencing it loses touch with reality and focuses on their heart pounding in their chest, their rapid breathing and their sudden urge to vomit or faint. The anxiety attack will most often peak at ten minutes into the state of panic and it can be especially frightening to be in public, where there is no safety or place to escape, when it occurs.

So what does an anxiety attack feel like? Here are the most common symptoms associated with a full-on anxiety attack:

  • Heart palpitations or chest pain / tightness
  • Trouble breathing or hyperventilation
  • Sweating excessively
  • Trembling or shaking uncontrollably
  • Feeling that you will pass out or fall
  • Hot flashes or chills
  • Feelings of being detached or surreal
  • Nausea, “butterflies” or stomach cramps
  • Feeling that you are losing control or going mad

This only begins to explain the sheer terror that someone feels when he or she experiences an anxiety attack. The worst feeling for most adults is being in a place where there is no room to escape to a safety zone when experiencing an anxiety attack. This can happen in public places, elevators, cars, the office, stores or anywhere else so the anxiety sufferer often avoids these places at all costs – causing them a significant loss of normal lifestyle.

It’s no wonder that depression is most often associated with anxiety attacks. This often follows when the anxiety sufferer avoids normal life and stays home for days at a time, not coming into contact with others or enjoying social interactions for fear of having another “fit” in front of their peers, or worse yet, strangers.

Another problem associated with anxiety sufferers are those who attempt to self-medicate themselves. This can cause symptoms to become even worse and so this type of behavior should be avoided at all costs. Instead, anxiety sufferers may want to consider using natural alternatives like aromatherapy or herbal supplements to help keep the nerves calm and reduce the chances of having another attack. Or they can seek counseling from a psycho-therapist who has experience with anxiety attacks and methods to treat them.

If you are reading this, chances are either you or someone you care about experiences anxiety attacks. It’s important to note that there are many excellent ways to treat this problem and eliminate anxiety attacks for good.

Anxiety Remedy – How to Beat Anxiety and Get on With Your Life

I am not a doctor. I am a graduate of the school of “Been There, Over Came That” when it comes to anxiety attacks. I can honestly say that panic attacks were the most terrifying experience of my life. And, the depression that followed a panic attack was like an alien possession. I found my own unique way to an anxiety remedy that worked for me, and what I learned can help you do the same. For the last ten years, by some wonderful “bigger order of things” I have been helping people who seek anxiety treatments to find natural anxiety relief. What is even better, the 4 steps I have outlined here take you beyond just “coping” to feeling like a powerful person with more control of your life.

Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” The man was a Genius. So do it differently.

Step 1 Get perspective

First take some time to sit and reflect from a broad perspective of your life. Ask what is really important to you? Make a list on paper of your values and rank their importance to you – happiness, peace of mind, success, family, job, health etc. Make sure these are things that you really want, and not things you “should” want. Also, be sure to rank the importance that you currently put on feeling mentally and emotionally sound. Instead of writing, “I want to never have an anxiety attack again,” write down the attribute that you would posses by not having attacks like, “feel calm everyday,” or “to be in control.”

Step 2 Get control of your own attention

It has been proven that people with the most success and happiness have the greatest control of their own attention – that is the ability to direct their attention with their own willpower. You achieve this ability by practicing being present in the “here and now’ as opposed to being caught up in your own world of random thoughts which are too often negative and fearful.

What causes anxiety? We experience an anxiety attack when we are not in control of our thoughts, and no longer have the ability to re-direct our own attention to the things we would prefer to experience. So, decide to take time each day to practice being in the present moment. There are many natural anxiety reliefs like yoga exercises, yoga meditation, Thai Chi or Qi Gong or even learning to direct your attention to your bodys’ breathing. These practices strengthen your willpower to re-direct your attention. Find books and DVD’s that offer exercises that you can enjoy practicing each day as part of your own anxiety remedy.

If you end up doing nothing else that I have outlined here, do this step. It is the most important key to living a life without anxiety attacks symptoms – naturally. If you prefer, many of these practices I named are not religious or spiritual based and purely self help. This is an anxiety remedy that will make you happier and more in control than you can currently imagine.

The science behind “being present,” works the same as developing your muscles to climb a hill. With regular workouts (15 minutes practicing being in the present moment) you can eventually climb Mt. Everest. And, with practice, hill size fears become laughable and mountain size fears are doable by re-directing your attention away from potential panic disorder symptoms.

Step 3 Re-train your brain

Most people were taught to think about their problems. TV ads make millions by telling you your problems. It has become our habitual thinking. By the simple law of attraction this habit is only attracting more problems. And, you feel weighted down. Thinking of problems hits you like the earths’ gravity has suddenly increased ten fold. The practice of re-training the brain is to become more aware of your thoughts and re-phrase them to make them positive.

First you have a thought like, “How on earth will I pay my bills????” This habit-thought implies that there is no way out of this black hole. Next time, instead, stop yourself and using your newly strengthened willpower, re-phrase the thought into a question with more creative energy like, “What are some possible solutions to paying my bills?”

Tip: Begin your questions with a “how” or “what” and never with “why.” Notice how you feel when you re-phrase this issue with a question? If you do not feel lighter and more optimistic, try re-phrasing the question until you do feel lighter.

The result – the mind is naturally drawing you toward possibility thinking. If you practice re-phrasing into “how” or “what” questions enough times with real life issues, your new habit-thinking will begin “go positive” naturally. This part of the anxiety remedy will really excite you. It did me.

Remember: it is not a black or white, pass or fail thing. It is practice until 50% of your thoughts are problem-thoughts and 50% are solution-thoughts. With practice you will tip the scale and minimize stinking-thinking. Want proof? Observe anyone that you consider to be without anxiety. What kind of thoughts do they have?

Step 4 Diet and exercise

I have found through the years that proper diet and exercise are more important for our mental and emotional health than we ever imagined. Many chemicals in our food alter our brain such as sugar and caffeine. Some nutritional experts believe that the right food can cure diseases like cancer and that poor diet is directly related to attention disorders. Hello? Attention disorders?

In fact, one high school in New England cleared out all foods & drinks with sugar from the vending machines and cafeteria and asked the parents to do the same at home. They found the disciplinary problems dropped tremendously while grade point averages went up.

Exercise triggers the body to produce its’ own natural “feel good” chemical called serotonin. This is the same goal of ant-anxiety medications, except unlike exercise they can be addictive and cause side effects. Diet & exercise are often overlooked, but both are very important factors as anxiety treatments.

Practice these steps and you will find yourself experiencing increased peace of mind and happiness that excites you. You will actually have more time in your day for worthy goals and wonderful loved ones when anxiety is no longer there to zap your attention and liveliness – plenty of time to get on with your life.

10 Tips To Stress Relief At Work

In today’s over competitive world, almost each one of us suffers from stress resulting from one factor or the other. According to a study conducted by the American Psychological Association (APA) in the US in 2007, 75% of the Americans feel that money and work are the two major causes of stress. The following quick stress-relief techniques are simple to use and can be practiced at the workplace itself and will surely help you to manage stress in the middle of a hectic work day!

1. Meditate. Get short breaks of 5 to 10 minutes every 2 to 3 hours to spend some time with your inner self. When you take these short breaks, think of nothing. Choose a secluded place, if you can choose a place underneath a big tree, it would be great! Relax, close your eyes and breathe deeply. Inhale as deeply as you can and concentrate on your breathing. Once you have filled your lungs full of fresh oxygen, hold your breath as long as you can. Once you have held your breath long enough, exhale as slowly as you can, once again concentrating on your breathing.

2. Chat. Try and spend some time with your colleagues and catch up with them to do some friendly chit chatting. Make it a point not to talk about anything related to work or business. Some tips for topics that you could discuss would be a new movie which has been recently released, or about a restaurant which serves great food or simply to listen to what your colleague has to share.

3. Humor. Keep a humor book handy at your desk. Whenever you feel stressed out grab this book and read a couple of humor anecdotes and if possible (and of course, if the situation permits!) share it with your colleagues too! Everybody is aware that humor is one of the most powerful stress busters and it serves the purpose while you are at work as well!

4. Organize. Clear-up your desk! Remove all those unwanted papers, organize those files, organize important documents neatly into different folders or files and clear all the clutter. It is very stressful to work in a cluttered work-desk than to get stressed out by the work itself. Once you do this, and your work desk is clean and neatly organized, you will not feel stressed out without any reason. Not anymore!

5. Chew a gum! According to an article published by stress-relief.net, a research by Professor Andrew Scholey says that chewing gum may act as a stress buster in addition to relieving anxiety and boosting alertness. Gum chewers who participated in the research had a 17% reduction in anxiety during mild stress (against non-gum chewers). The study also showed around 10% reductions in moderate stress among gum chewers against non-gum chewers.

6. Music. Listen to some good and soothing music. Choose some mild music which has a soothing effect on you. Music has long been recommended by most physicians for a range of therapies, stress-relief being one among them. Stop all that you are doing for 5 minutes and just listen to the music. Concentrate on the music and enjoy every beat of it. I guarantee you that once you are done with listening to the music for as less as 5 minutes, your stress would have vanished and you will be totally refreshed.

7. Say “NO”. It is very important for each individual to understand and accept each one of our limits. While we all will be even happier to do all that is possible under the Sun, what is more important is that we need to accept the fact that it is not possible. Whether it is in personal relationships or at work, refuse to accept additional responsibilities unless and until you can fulfill them without compromising on “your time”. Eating more than what you could digest will cause indigestion and other related ailments, similarly accepting more than what you could handle normally is a guaranteed recipe for stress.

8. Enjoy. Make it a point to do something that you enjoy doing every day, even though it might be for as short a time as 5 minutes. It is very important for each individual to set aside some time everyday to do some leisure activities of the person’s choice. Some examples of leisure activities are a game of tennis, a good workout, gardening, spending time with the kids, etc.

9. Avoid smoking and drinking. Smoking and drinking alcohol may tend to act as a stress-relief medication temporarily but the damage inflicted is permanent. In effect, there is no stress-relief associated with neither smoking nor drinking.

10. Sleep! Get enough sleep. It is very important for a healthy and normal human being to have a good eight hours of sound sleep every night. Adequate sleep fuels the mind and prepares our body for a hectic day. Feeling tired because of lack of sleep, will increase stress apart from forcing the human brain to think irrationally.

Anxiety Panic Attack Symptoms – How to Relieve Anxiety Without Medication

Anxiety panic attack symptoms are not only very scary, they are extremely common. In the United States alone, it is estimated that there are approximately 60 million people who suffer needlessly from anxiety and panic episodes at some point in their life.

Anxiety and panic symptoms usually begin to manifest themselves around the age of 18. Although most people mistakenly think that panic attacks and anxiety attacks are the same thing, they are different in key ways. Panic attacks generally happen suddenly and unexpectedly (it is the speed at which panic episode hits that often causes them to be so debilitating). Anxiety attacks, however, have a tendency to creep up on you gradually, and you may feel symptoms for days or even weeks before a full-blown anxiety attack.

When a person begins to manifest symptoms while doing specific activities, the most common of which are shopping, driving, or standing in line, they may quickly develop irrational phobias to these specific activities. It is these phobias that cause people to begin to avoid particular situations, as they are sure if they are put in that situation again it will cause another more severe panic attack. Once people build a pattern of avoidance, it is not uncommon that mundane activities will also begin to trigger attacks as well.

Symptoms can easily destroy a person’s life unless they receive the appropriate treatment. As an example, children who suffer from anxiety and panic will often avoid school, and dread separation from their parents. If their anxiety panic attack symptoms are not treated early enough, these children are extremely likely to end up using street drugs and alcohol to dull their feelings.

It is easy to think that anxiety attacks occur without any warning or apparent cause unless you know what to look for. Therefore, it is important to watch for the following symptoms:

  • stomach ailments
  • chest pains
  • severe heart palpitations
  • nausea, lightheadedness, and dizziness
  • tingling and numbness in the future in hands
  • difficulty with breathing and a sense of choking
  • trembling and shaking, as well as hot flashes or chills
  • perceptual distortion and dream-like sensations such as fainting

When experiencing anxiety or panic, it is not unusual for the subject of the attack to be overcome with the need to escape from their current environment. They also become overwhelmed and have fears about losing control. People who suffer from panic attacks and anxiety attacks often recall that they felt like they were going to die while they were experiencing their anxiety panic attack symptoms.

It is often very challenging trying to identify symptoms, as they tend to vary from person to person, and each individual will display their own unique combinations of symptoms, which can change each time attacks occur. Not knowing that you’re having a panic attack often causes confusion which leads to more distress, thereby intensifying an already unfortunate situation.

Anxiety symptoms are also associated with certain medical conditions, such as anemia and hyperthyroidism. Medications, including anti-malaria drugs, and any and all stimulants, including coffee and cigarettes, have been shown to cause the onset of anxiety and panic related symptoms.

Being prepared ahead of time by knowing the symptoms you experience could mean the difference between having another full-blown panic or anxiety episode, or being able to remain calm and letting the symptoms pass by you, knowing that they can’t hurt you.

Care Givers’ Natural Remedies For Stress and Burn Out

Speaking from experience, there comes a time in every care giver’s life when enough is enough. It’s called Burn Out! Often, care givers can get run down, feel anxious, depressed, and experience tiredness pain. Stress relief strategies are essential as it has been shown that over-the-top stress undermines the immune system. This reduced immunity makes the body more susceptible to illness. In his book, “Handbook of Human Stress and Immunity”, Robert Bonneau explores how stress affects overall health.

Have you ever contracted a cold or flu after a significant stressful period? A cousin of mine caring for his dear wife with M..S. suffered tiredness problems and became very run down. His immune system had a difficult time fighting off invading viruses or bacteria. He eventually contracted an illness and then they both had to be hospitalized. In this case, stress relief activities could have been useful to prevent illness.

Enhance Body, Mind Spirit

Caring for others is a balancing act. If you’re not caring for yourself, you may be compromising your ability to care for the sick person. I’ve seen daughters so run down that they end up yelling at their sick parent, curtailing any elderly well-being. These well-intentioned adult children were too exhausted and out of control to realize that their own mental (and physical) health was also suffering.

Remembering my own past episodes, care givers feel they must do it all. Often women care givers need time management help. They not only attend to their own children, their communities, but often they hold down a job as well. Often daughters become the key person in charge. They are the ones who take their sick parent to doctor or hospital appointments. Also, it’s often daughters who pick up medication prescriptions, clothing and keep tabs on the parent’s diet.

Women can began to feel overwhelmed, resentful, then guilty. Then they are in need of anxiety natural medicine. According to the American Psychiatric Association, for the care giver, it’s essential to monitor yourself. Make sure you are consuming healthy nutrients in food. This is critical to maintaining your energy and good mood. If you need more information on eating healthy, contact your local public health department or a nutritionist for a food guide and specific nutrition health benefits. If you suffer tiredness problems, make sure you’re getting adequate sleep.

Anti-Anxiety Natural Remedies

Do something you enjoy. This might be taking a walk or engaging in other exercise, listening to music or talking with a friend. It’s vital to not only make time for contact with loved ones but also to create time management slots for relaxation for yourself. Normal life events are a necessary respite for the rigors of caring for someone with an illness or disease. Some people may feel guilty if they have fun or enjoy themselves when others they love are suffering. But stress relieving exercises, enjoying your life and making time for friends are essential to well-being

Some other natural treatments for anxiety might include:

– recruiting family members to help with chores

– recruiting agencies that can give care

– ordering Meals on Wheels

– calling a social services agency

– meeting with a social worker to discuss the next steps

– considering a type of short or long term care facility for your loved one

I urge you to do something to include natural stress, anxiety relief remedies to ease your load of being a care giver. Don’t wait until you’re at your wit’s end! Ask for help and switch to a good health lifestyle. You and your family member will be glad you did.

Prayer and Stress Relief – 4 Different Approaches to Praying That Help Relieve Stress and Anxiety

Prayer for stress relief?  Almost sounds a bit sacrilegious…  Yet those of us who pray know that prayer works.  Jesus himself used it when he had to get through challenging times.  And praying works very well for us too — for relieving stress and anxiety, for giving us the faith and trust that we will be alright and that we will be guided to take the actions that will get us there.

Here are four ways in which praying can help relief stress and anxiety.

1) Direct prayer

Pray for yourself.  Pray for guidance, for help, for whatever makes you feel better. Have a conversation with your Higher Power and ask for help, insight, strength, and guidance. And then, release the issue to God and have faith that all will be well.

2) Pray with others

You could call a friend, or pray with someone at your place of worship. Or you could call a prayer line where people will pray with you.

The one that has helped me through many a challenging time is the Unity prayer line at 1-800-NOW-PRAY. They are there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and their prayers are wonderful.  They will also add you to a prayer list afterwards and continue to pray for you for an additional 30 days — and they’ll send you a letter of support if you would like that.

3) Meditate

Meditation — or just being quiet and listening to the voice within — is another form of prayer.  Praying the rosary can also be seen as a meditation at some level. I rediscovered the rosary when I went through times of extreme stress and was amazed by its calming power.

4) Pray for others

Either join your place of worship’s prayer team if there is one, or create a list of your own with people who you would like to pray for.  Then pray for them.  You’ll be surprised how much that helps calm your own concerns.  And, of course, since your name should be on that list too, you’ll be including yourself in your prayers.

Panic Attack – What Causes Them?

Panic attacks are part of a the larger group of anxiety disorders. Tens of millions of Americans suffer from anxiety of varying levels, and over a million people experience panic attacks every year.

There has been a great deal of debate in the world of psychology about what triggers anxiety disorders and the best way to treat them.

Some argue that they are caused by chemical imbalances in the brain and should be treated with medication. Unfortunately, due to the huge drug companies realizing that there are billions of dollars in profits to be made, pills often become the first line of defense in treatment instead of the last resort.

Two types of medications commonly prescribed are tranquilizers (like Xanax and Valium) and antidepressants (like Prozac, Paxil, and Zoloft). But it’s important to point out that the chemical imbalances explanation is merely a theory, and since every person is different, there is no reason not to try other forms of treatment. Medications can have very serious side effects, such as loss of libido and even suicidal thoughts.

Other experts believe that anxiety disorders start from a type of exhaustion – physical, mental, or emotional. This could result from emotionally painful incidents like divorce or death of loved ones, poor diet, drug abuse, lack of sleep, being overworked or overstressed, etc.

When overwhelmed in one of these areas, the body and mind become overly sensitized to stresses. In these cases, people start experiencing a state where they are jittery and more susceptible to shocks, whether it’s their own rapid heartbeat or the sound of a door slamming. People become confused about these reactions, start to worry that their physical sensations are part of a bigger problem, and then the person begins a cycle of fear and confusion that can escalate into panic attacks.

Another theory worth noting is that panic attacks can stem from internal conflicts – unresolved issues like abuse, neglect, or a traumatic incident. In these instances, panic attacks can be linked to post traumatic stress disorder.

Soldiers returning home from battle often suffer from this type of disorder. Because they had to be on heightened alert the entire time they were in countries like Iraq or Afghanistan, always having to worry about snipers or roadside bombs, their brains learned to always function at a peak state of hyper-awareness and fear.

Unfortunately, when they come home, their brains are not able to “shut off” and say, “Oh, there’s no danger, so I can just relax now.” Their systems have been trained by constant conflict and fear, and so those feelings linger when they return home.

Interestingly enough, this same sort of reaction can be found in people who have not been in any immediate physical danger and have never been to war, but their systems are just more highly attuned to the fear of danger. Their bodies show the same symptoms of anxiety, and just like soldiers returning from war, it can lead to very unpleasant feelings and physical sensations.

Neck Stress: How to Relieve Shoulder and Neck Stress

How To Relieve Stress Without Drugs

We live in a high stress modern society. It is not uncommon for a large number of our neck and shoulder muscles to be chronically stressed, frozen, or hypertonic. This is not only what leads to stiffness and pain, but also results in a continuous, fatiguing energy drain.

We carry much of our stress in our neck muscles. When these muscles tighten up, they cause other muscles in the body to weaken whenever you move your head. In other words, other muscles in your body tend to become reactive to your neck muscles when you are under stress.

There are many causes for neck stress and there are many ways to correct neck stress. The basic cause of neck stress is what we call- “Repetitive Muscle Stress,” RMS.

Muscles we discovered are the missing link to our aches and pains. We need to restore the muscle tone that was lost by doing repetitive or strenuous activities caused by accident or injury.

Muscles pull bones! Bones do not pull muscles. When we balance the muscles, the pain may diminish. When given time to heal, the pain goes away completely. Muscles have to work together in groups or in pairs. If you have neck stress from turning your head, other muscles have to relax. The signal has to come from the brain to relax muscles. However, if the signal has been blocked by stress or an injury, the result may create pain. This is why we say we work with the body-mind.

Here is a sample technique for “Neck Stress Release.” This technique sends a signal to the brain to release the tension in the neck muscles and also, corrects reactive interactions with other muscles. There are muscle fibers in the neck that run up and down the neck and around the whole neck.

Do some neck rolls. Look up with the head, then you look left, right and down. Gently pinch the neck muscles in and up and down direction with your thumb and index finger. Work on each side of your neck from front to back and on both sides. It is important to keep your thumb facing downward. Go around the whole neck. You can pretend that your thumb and index finger is a little “Pacman” gently nibbling on your neck. This activates the sensor cells under the skin and sends a signal to the brain to relax the neck muscles.

Here are some benefits of the “Neck Release.”

Computer operators repetitively look from their display down to their keyboard or over to material they are working on.

Hyperactive school children reduce stress by looking at the teacher or looking around the room.

It improves performance in sports such as golf, basketball and tennis.

Also, it can be helpful in reducing vertigo and balance problems. Most people getting up from a sitting position have a natural tendency to look down. As a result, the muscles in the neck signal the muscles in the legs to go weak. The simple “Neck Release” technique may eliminate most vertigo conditions.

Stress Reduction Techniques For Stress Relief

It is sad, but true. We all live in a world that is demanding and fraught with stress. This type of lifestyle has becoming increasingly hectic over the past fifty years and other than moving to a desert island; there isn’t much that we can do to stop all the stress that surrounds a modern lifestyle.

Fortunately, there are simple stress reduction techniques that we can use to manage stress better.

Take time out of the fast lane.

I know you may well be thinking “Great – but how?” and I feel that pressure too. The upshot of it is, you need to make time to de-stress. Even if you can only squeeze in thirty minutes a day, don’t deny yourself that small, but necessary luxury. If you are pushed for time, have a bath, put on some relaxing music and drift away.

If you have managed to schedule yourself in a larger chunk of time, take a getaway, away from all of the regular stresses of your home life.

Try to establish a good sleeping pattern – and stick to it.

As much as you may look forward to your Saturday morning as you get to spend a few more hours in the land of nod, but this actually has a detrimental effect on your body. You will end up feeling more tired, rather than relaxed. If you are striving to reduce your stress levels and improve your quality of sleep, steer clear of the alcohol before bed.

A study has shown that drinking alcohol prior to going to bed increases restlessness, leaving you feeling much more tired and stressed the following morning.

Monitor what you eat.

When we get stressed, our body craves certain foods that we feel will help us get through the troublesome time. This type of food, however, tends to be full of sugar and will give the body the initial boost, but unfortunately it will also allow it to crash. This is the very last thing you want to happen when you are trying to reduce your stress levels.

Instead go for food that will give you the energy you need, but that will release it slowly, such as a banana or unrefined carbohydrates.

A great and healthy stress reduction technique is exercise.

Now, I know that the last thing you want to do when you are feeling stressed is to hit the gym. But by doing exercise, your body releases endorphins, and these make the body feel great in a totally natural way. If the gym isn’t for you, try joining a team sport, like football, rugby or netball. Through these sports, your mind will be occupied, making it pretty much impossible for you to ponder over the stress of your daily lives.

Finding a way to reduce your stress will be terribly beneficial to you both whilst you are in the thick of the drama and later on in life. Having your own tried and tested stress reduction techniques to chill out will be your saviour when you need it most.

There are many different techniques that are currently being sold on the market to help reduce stress levels, but finding the one that works for you may well take a while.

Warning: It is essential that you invest the time and effort to learn the best tips for stress management for you and your lifestyle, before you become a health statistic from the dangers of not managing stress! Don’t risk your health any longer. Get the information and start to manage your stressors and triggers of stress before you blow a gasket.
