People juggle multiple respon- sibilities at work and at home, in both their professional lives and personal relationships. According to research- ers at the Mayo Clinic, surveys show that most Americans experience challenges with stress at some point during the year. In looking at the causes of stress, remember that the brain comes hard-wired with an alarm system for protection. When the brain perceives a threat, it signals the body to release a burst of hormones to fuel the Stress and healthy living capacity for a response, overriding our normal relaxed state. Unfor- tunately, the nonstop stress of modern life means that this alarm system rarely shuts off. This is why stress management is so im- portant. Some causes of stress are obvious -- job pressures, relationship problems or financial difficulties - but daily hassles and demands, such as commuting, ar- ranging day care or be- ing overcommitted at work, can also contrib- ute to our stress level. Positive events can be stressful, too. If a per- son recently got mar- ried, started a new job or boughta new house, they could have a high stress level. Sometimes the solu- tion may be as easy as turning off the TV when the evening news is too depressing or trying to avoid a stressful situa- tion at work. Many peo- ple benefit from daily practice of stress reduc- tion techniques such as walking, gardening, Zumba dancing or Tai Chi. Overachievers may put relaxation low on their priority list, but that is self-defeating. Relaxation is invalu- able for maintaining good health and well- being. It repairs the toll that stress takes on our mind and body. Stress will never disap- pear from our lives, but with practice, we can learn to manage stress and increase our ability to cope with challenges in life. It does not mat- ter which relaxation technique we choose. What matters is that we select a method that works and practice it on a regular basis.
