  1. Stress is such a contributing factor in our health, but it often overlooked or ignored. I have had people tell me that stress is normal! Thank you for this article. I feel like it has shed some light on a difficult subject.

  2. Yes. I’d testify that this is a good regimen for stress relief and something anyone can do starting right now. I do much of that already and will submit it works for me.

  3. Stress is the root cause of all diseases, sicknesses and ailments. These are all great natural supplements to combat stress, thank you!

  4. I had to smile, when I read that smiling itself relieves stress. I have been under quite a bit of stress lately. Going from a normal hearing person, to almost completely deaf. It has certainly changed a lot for me, and has been kind of tough to deal with. So, I was interested in ways to relieve stress. And smiling seems like an easy first step 🙂

  5. Good article. I tend to close down when stress overwhelms me. Probably why I no longer work a traditional job. It got to be too much after 28 years and beating myself down. I seriously doubt I will ever get back to a normal job. I listen to mindfulness music and guided meditation. Most of all I live like I need nothing, want nothing and aspire to be nothing. Sounds funny I know, but I have two honorable discharges from both the Marine Corps and the Navy Reserves. I also completed a four year electrical apprenticeship and went on to work as a commercial electrician for 10 plus years. The walls crashed down when I caught meningitis and I haven’t work a regular job since. I am lucky I have a supportive family and a small pension or I would be living in the bushes somewhere. Stress with no relief is bad news especially when it’s bad stress.

    • Thank you for your comment and service as a Marine, I am a residential electrician for 15 or more years, that was when I had the least stress, cause I loved do that

  6. Yes. This is true and I can tell you first hand that stress does manifests in the body in so many different ways. It affects your mental faculties such as brain fog. I take the B Complex with B12 liquid. You simply drop under your tongue and it really does make a huge difference. I recommend taking a good source of B Complex. Thanks for your post. All the best!

  7. NIce article.
    I agree with you,Stress really is one of the major causes of health problems.
    I experience it myself when I was working in a stressed environment.
    My Cholesterol levels,uric acid and sugar levels have gone up when I experience stress.
    At least I know now how to manage this stress and live a much more healthier stress free life with some of your tips.

  8. Now a days it seems like stress is part of our lives more and more. It is great to have this information available. Thank you for all the information!

  9. Stress is good when used to do things that have to be done, but when it becomes excessive and begins to hurt you physically and emotionally, that means it’s time to find ways to control it, I suffer from too much stress especially when I have a lot of things to be done but can’t find time for everything, in this case it’s very important to control your inner voice while talking to yourself, I say”it’s ok don’t worry” to myself always, to sooth myself so I’d become more productive and more able to finish my to do list.

  10. Great article, and thank you for helping to spread the word, that stress is the reason for so many illnesses. People do ignore the serious side of stress, and what it can lead to down the road.

  11. Hi Fred
    Some great points about stress and its impact on our health. I tend to get stressed very easily when I am not taking care of myself. I have some goals set for 2018 that include working on my health and wellbeing. What I am finding, in just the first 12 days of this year, is that by exercising, eating more fresh and less processed food, and taking time out to do something I like, I am feeling more relaxed. My part-time job causes me stress and normally in the day leading up to a shift, I am stressing about going – however today i am relaxed about tomorrow. Do you think the changes I have made in my diet and exercise would be the reason for this?

    • Thanks for the comment, wow Megan glad to see things starting to work out for you. You know small changes sometimes make the biggest difference. Our goal is to keep it going, to get the ultimate results.

  12. Great information. It seems like in our modern convenience oriented world we somehow have made ourselves more stressed out than when we had to work a little harder to get things done. Strange thought. I will definitely be trying out some of your suggestions. Thank You

    • Thank you for the comment, Maryann. Yeah, people do let stress take control of the lives and if not corrected early enough sickness comes upon them.
      Stress is something we can live without but living with brings on an early grave.

  13. Excessive worrying can cause stress. Yes, I agree completely. It does no good for the body. My own experience, the shoulder and neck pain can be unbearable at times. Even difficulty in getting a good night sleep. As you mentioned, walking can help alleviate the stress and pain. I usually brisk walk for about 20-30 minutes in the early morning. It does help. But then, stop worrying too much is the first step to take.

    Thanks for sharing, Fred.

    • Thank you, Sharon, for the comment. Stress is a killer if you know what I mean. It is one of the main problems with today’s health issues. There are so many things that can be done to alleviate stress in our lives we just have to do them. The first step is to take action.

  14. Hello Fred,
    This post is what I needed to read now. I feel kind of stressed by all things I must do and want to do. There is just now enough time in a day!
    Taking a walk in nature is a wonderful way to stress down and doing exercises also helps me a lot. I love the tip to smile when feeling stressed. It’s so obvious that it is stress relieving. Why didn’t I think about that before? When I meet stressed people or when I feel stressed myself, I’ll make use of this simple but effective measure.

    • Thank you, Pernilla, for the comment. Most people these days are stressed and don’t even realize it. This is what brings on most of their ailments. But there are a few things we can do through the day even around other people that will help stressful days. Smiling is contagious.
