Power up your life & make stress work 4 you. Excerpt # 2.

Chapter 1
Defining stress and it's dangers
I strongly believe that stress is an important contributing factor in our life's discomforts and thus I recognize the need to learn to overcome, master and make that 'inevitable' stress work for us.   To that effect, I am inviting you in the nine chapters of this handbook, to share my efficient, quick and easy stress management program.
The program is highly effective, and, in it, you will learn how stress works, how to identify the symptoms of stress and how to combat and build resistance to stress through relaxation techniques, dynamic breathing exercises, mental control/reprogramming techniques and proper nutrition.
Since forever, we've been talking about the dangers of stress and how it effects our daily lives.  How do we react to stress?  How do we identify it?  How do we defend and protect ourselves from it?  Not always easy.  Difficult even.  I have personally attended numerous seminars on the subject, but most were too theoretical and lacked constructive and easily applicable methods to fight stress in the short term.
Let's admit that it is virtually impossible to eliminate stress completely from our lives.  It would even be a mistake to do so, because if the energy generated from stress can be destructive at times when uncontrolled, it can also be constructive and a very powerful tool if we know how to use it...
... According to Hans Selye, the dean of stress, "Stress is the body's non-specific response to any demand placed on it, be it pleasant or not",  A passionate kiss can be as stressful as sitting on a dentist's chair.  After all, the reactions are the same: the pulse and breathing accelerate, the heart is beating wildly, and every part of the body is placed on alert.
The body reacts in three stages: the alarm, the resistance, and the exhaustion.
For exemple, when a person falls into icy water, a state of shock is initiated, then the body starts to adapt.  Nevertheless, if that person stays in the water too long, the body will no longer be able to resist the cold and will die of exhaustion.
