We normally in our day to day lives, don't actually notice the stress building up, it is only when we begin to get overwhelmed by stress does it start showing up in different ways, like a low immune system or irritability. Most of the lifestyle diseases are attributed to stress. It can also be held responsible for the minor irritants in life.
Fortunately for us we just need to realize that very small changes in lifestyle and attitude, can make a huge difference in how we approach and face the differences in our lives.
We need to have a mixture of long term and short term stress relievers, in order to reach a level of ongoing stress relief, so that stress never really overwhelms us.
It is imperative to maintain long term habits to build resilience in such a way, that you eliminate the idea of stress even before you start experiencing it.
