Stress – who doesn’t have it? Even children suffer from stress. I think we are society that is obsessed with stress and some people think that being stressful is a sign of success. And then when they develop high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, adrenal fatigue, digestive issues and other diseases, they wonder why. Stress is part of life – I get it. But what can we do to lower it? How do we manage it so we don’t develop health issues?
Hundreds of books and articles have been written on this subject and there are several tools to manage and reduce stress. My opinion is that adults have the freedom to choose their path to reduce stress but as a society we have to start with children and teens. One of my favorite things to do is to teach yoga and meditation to children and teens. They love it and the benefits are endless.
