Are you one of the 54 percent of Americans who are concerned about stress levels in their daily lives?
How about being one of the 62 percent who say that work has a significant impact on their own stress levels?
There is no doubt that stress has become an all-pervasive factor in our society today. It seems that no matter where we are, whether at home, at school, or on the job, we can’t escape rising stress levels and the harmful effects those levels have on our health.
In fact, 70 to 90 percent of medical visits are attributed to stress related illness. More importantly, stress keeps us from enjoying the life that we deserve. When we spend so much of our time and energy trying to cope with stressful situations, there is nothing left at the end of the day for anything but trying to recover for the next round of incoming.
We are left depleted and exhausted rather than energized and fulfilled after each day. In the long run, our overall health suffers.
Stress contributes to heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, and other illness. It adversely affects the immune system and can contribute to such conditions as Lupus.
If not addressed, chronic stress can actually kill.
When properly managed, however, stress does not have to be overwhelming. Using exercises, cognitive behavioral changes, and continuous support, wellness coaching helps you create a stress-neutral environment.
Some of the benefits of a stress neutral environment include:
- Weight loss
- Improved sleep patterns
- Mental clarity and focus
- Improved patience
- Higher energy levels
- Decreased health risks
- Reduced anxiety
- More quality time
Imagine being able to focus on the life you want, instead of just trying to cope with the one you have. A stress neutral environment gives you the time and energy you need to explore all the best sides of yourself.
A wellness program focusing on stress reduction and management will help you regain control of your life. You will become proactive instead of reactive. You will be more mindful of the world around you. When stressful situations arise, you will face them with ease and confidence.
You will be healthier, more relaxed, and–best of all–you will learn to embrace and enjoy life instead of just getting through it or worse, trying to avoid it.
With stress finally under control, you can create the healthier and happier life you have always dreamed about.
