The school going kids are as stressed as a soon to be mother.
There are more reasons to be stressed than there seem to be ways to de-stress. It becomes for all to realise the danger of stress and how to deal with it.
Headaches, increased or abnormal heart rate, tension in the shoulders and neck, digestion problems like nausea, heartburn, constipation and/or diarrhea are some of the outcome of higher stress level in life.
If you have been under stress and have noticed any of these symptoms, it is time, you consult a doctor.

Stress can lead to problems with heart, the engine that runs the whole-body system. Stress is linked to high blood pressure, which in turn can lead to heart attack, blood clots and death.

One of the best medicines for de-stressing is to have a good friend. A friend you can open up to, confide and trust in. A sounding board to help get things off your chest. You will be surprised how talking and sharing your issues, problems, anxiety and excitement with someone can help.
Do not under estimate the power of a good friend and a cup of coffee?
