Indirectly, stress is probably our number one killer. Not only does stress lead to health related issues, but stressing over something doesn’t always solve the problem. It’s important to evaluate your overall lifestyle when encountering significant stress. For many people, stress is so commonplace that it has become a way of life. Some people have the ability to face monumental stress with relative ease, while others are overwhelmed by minor nuances.
We may not be able to remove the stressors from our life, but we can find ways to reduce their affect through careful thought, prayer, rearranging of our priorities, discussion and good counsel. As the old adage goes “Manage your stress or your stress will manage you.”
