This cannot be STRESSED enough

It has been called everything from "public enemy number one" to "the silent killer". We all deal with it from time to time (some more often than others). Stress is a real fact of life for anyone living on Planet Earth.

Despite its many negative connotations, stress can be a good thing in our lives

It works hand in hand with our body's own natural defense mechanisms (i.e. "fight or flight trigger") to shield us from impending dangers on both a microscopic & macroscopic scale.

Sometimes a helpful attribute can serve to inhibit other defensive measures built into our DNA. The Mayo Clinic's noteworthy website features a series of articles dealing with this same subject matter. I want to, however, bring your attention to a specific article called "Need Stress Relief? Try The Four "A's". Personally, I found it to be very helpful. Let me know what you think of it.

Oh my god!! that article was SO on point!! Sometimes I get so stressed out from my job and from my business i just want to scream! This is a REALLY good find!

Thanks for commenting, germayn! Stress comes in many forms & can affect us in all aspects of our lives (family, work, business, etc.), but the key is how we respond to it.

If you respond negatively, stress reciprocates in a like manner. By sharp contrast, positive reactions cause more desirable outcomes.

A sort of a karma-effect, if you will. The Mayo Clinic article addresses this in a much more concise way, but this is just my humble opinion on the subject.

Thank you again for your comment!

5 Simple Ways To Lower Cholesterol

You can easily lower your bad cholesterol levels without drugs by following simple steps that will not only change your cholesterol levels, but also improve your health today and for the long haul.

Eventually, high cholesterol can lead to severe damage to the heart and arteries, not the least of which are atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), stroke or cardiac arrest. 

I have listed 5 simple ways you can realistically lower your cholesterol without prescription medication.

Zero Cost Weight Loss

"If it's for free, its for me."                                  --A good friend of mine
Low cost is great, but free is always better....

Weight loss plans can become very expensive when you consider all of the diet aids and techniques you may have to utilize to reach your goals. 

Today's economy almost precludes you from aggressively pursuing an effective weight loss program due to the anticipated expense involved.
