The Best Stress Buster of All
As you may know, your health is a reflection of your ability to adapt to the stresses of your life. We are subject to physical, chemical and emotional stressors, some of which can be reduced or eliminated, and some of which are unavoidable and must be dealt with.
For example, physical stress can be caused by injuries, or by the effect of gravity constantly pulling down on your structure, putting pressure on your spine, your knees, your feet, your neck and so on. Chemical stress may come from poor diet or exposure to pollution. Emotional stress may result from conflicts at work or in the home, or from self-esteem issues, among many other scenarios.
You can handle physical stress with exercise, massage or chiropractic adjustments. Chemical stress responds to better nutrition and steering clear of toxic agents. You can minimize your emotional stress through yoga and meditation, though sometimes counseling is called for.
But the universal antidote for stress is having a sense of purpose, which leads to happiness and inner peace. You can’t control what happens, but you can control how you show up, and if you maintain a great attitude, and keep yourself pointed toward a positive vision for your future regardless of circumstances, you will make the most of every situation.
It turns out that having a reason to live is the best stress buster of all. Then, when you apply the abovementioned strategies for addressing physical, chemical and emotional stressors, you can get to a place where stress has less effect on you. That’s how to generate a better quality of life.
