Just what I needed to hear! Been off work feeling sorry for myself (wisdom teeth) and this has given me a kick up the bum! Thanks

Fascinating. You really summed up a lot of reading and self research succinctly and clearly. I enjoyed your writing.

Excellent article!!! As a yogi and massage therapist I am ecited to see the fitness arena adding "mental" fitness to the picture. Too manby people today are relying on medication to get them "out of their funk" when they have what they need inside them. Take time for yourself (meditation, yoga, or even lunch under a tree) and whatch how your body begins to feel better. We are amazing creatures! Namaste:-)

A well researched article. Although It may not be well received by some, for example: women, scientists or atheists; it's always good to remember that we are all unique and are free to take our own path in life. All in all, the idea that invisible things such as stress can cause real harm is good to reflect upon and take action to minimize and manage.
