Stress is a psychosomatic response of the mind and body to circumstances or triggers that a person finds difficult to deal with, and it, at the very least, results in worry. Over time, stress causes several physical and psychological problems in the body. Stress has many negative impacts, including heart disease, breathing problems, diabetes, allergies, miscarriages, anxiety and panic disorders, depression, a weakened immune system, etc. It is also a significant factor in many people’s suicide attempts. The rate of suicide among Japanese employees has never been higher. Before it takes control of our lives and lowers the quality of life, the world must recognize this notorious everyday life companion and make an effort to study and create coping mechanisms.
Stress control is more of a way of life than a singular occurrence. To successfully live our best lives, we must consciously work to limit our exposure to stress and our use of coping mechanisms. Life is challenging. It cannot be avoided or hidden. We must educate ourselves about the consequences of stress and coping mechanisms to manage it successfully and productively. We can pick one or more options and implement them into our daily routines as rituals or habits. Yoga, meditation, mindfulness, a good diet, exercise, acupressure, acupuncture, creating relaxation rituals like massages, or drinking herbal teas like rose, bamboo, chamomile, peppermint, etc., are all helpful ways to handle stress.
