Stress caused by the daily pressures of life, affects every system of your body. Your efforts to relieve stress will fail, if you don’t understand how to process it. How do you prepare to deal with the toxic damage, stress can cause to your health?
Jim LaValle, a licensed pharmacist and naturopathic medicine practitioner, has an interesting approach to stress relief. He believes each person needs to take an active role in relieving stress, by practicing kindness to others. Thus, by using kind words during your interactions with others, you’ll have a tremendous impact on their stress, as well as your own. All without taking drugs.
This seems to give a new feeling to the phrase, “what goes around, comes around”.
The Bottom Line: You need to look at how you process stress in your life. If you lash out at others with your stress, you don’t relieve your stress and just heap more stress upon them. Your relationships matter, don’t let them suffer because of your pressures. Nurture them by allotting some time each day to vent your stress through meditation, exercise, reading or whatever calms you.
Try using kind words to others. What do you have to lose?
It’s your life, live well.
