As each year goes by, many of us are wondering where did time go? Everything in our lives is like a blur - one to-do list after another, one more email, one more project. Moving from one thing to the next without a break. In such a fast-paced world, we need to slow down and pay attention to the little precious moments more than ever. Because it is in these little moments that we find joy, happiness and fulfilment.
Research has shown that stress is the catalyst to most, if not all diseases. It can affect the immune system, organs, cognitive function, and more from the individual’s internal/physical level. From an environmental and social level, stress can destroy families, relationships, and careers. Now, this relentless enemy is making its way through organizations as whole.
We can all agree that stress does not mean the same thing to everyone. In fact, different people have different names, concepts and ideas on what actual stress is to them. Most people believe that stress is happening when things are severe, overwhelming, and intense. Even still, people believe they are only under stress when lives are at stake, when they are ill, or when things are truly out of hand. People think they need to feel stress, see it, touch it, smell it, taste it, and sense it for it actually be stress.
Well, guess what?
More often than not, people do not feel stress until it is too late. Research has shown that stress is a silent killer by being the catalyst to most diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and more.
