Stress symptoms can be horrible!
Stress is an important and positive part of life.
BUT mismanaged or negative stress can cause uncomfortable stress symptoms that interfere with our daily wellness and ability to cope.
The problem is that we may think that thesymptom is the disease. For example, we may treat a throat infection and get it to clear - only to have it re-occur...
Or we might find an effective anti-inflammatory to swallow for migraine headaches, only to have that awful band of pain back again once the pill wears off...
It is important to become aware that stress symptoms are signs of stress and not some sickness that can be cured by swallowing antibiotics! And, furthermore, that both the symptoms and the causes and can be managed positively...
That strep throat could be a sign of a compromised immune symptom due to stress. Recurring migraines may mean that you need to reassess your lifestyle and deal with stress in a more constructive and holistic way...
And that is the aim of my site! To make you aware of what stress is; how it manifests; and then offer you a variety of ways for you to make your stress-control programme into something healthy and fun!
And, hopefully, you can help your friends and family cope better with their stress.
We cannot get rid of stress BUT we can control how it makes us feel!

Stress symptoms often mimic or seem to be symptoms of other problems. You may think that illness is to blame for that aching back or nagging headache, your inability to concentrate or your weightloss. But the common denominator might be stress.
Consulting a medical doctor for a thorough check-up is always advised!
Definitely, stress symptoms can affect your body, mind and emotions! And your general health suffers. Taking control of your reactions to stress gives you more strength and energy to deal with the actual causes of your stress. Unresolved stress can escalate into anxiety.
Just as the stress symptoms vary from person to person, so do the coping mechanisms...
My advice is to try what appeals to you and then make your own personal stress relief "recipe".
