Guest Post by Cherie Depano-Magsanoc

Stress can be defined as any chain of events that seem beyond our control and causes tension. In some stressful conditions we feel trapped and unable to cope. If this continues one breaks down and illness takes over the body. Stress must be released in order to lead a normal healthy life.

When we start taking things too seriously and control factors that cannot be controlled, we feel stressed. The circumstances that cause stress become too powerful and we feel helpless to do anything. According to an estimate, 70-90% of people in today’s world are stressed. Life has become too fast paced and unless we take some time to relax and ease stress, we will not be able to survive.

Relaxing to Beat the Stress

In order to beat the stress and unwind, one needs to relax. Relaxation is opposite to work and stress. When we work too hard and get stressed, relaxation is needed. Stress is something very personal and in each person, the intensity of suffering differs. It also depends on how it is looked at and interpreted. The only way to control stress is to see things in a different perspective. Stop taking everything personally to heart and you will see that you will feel light and stress free.
