Amazingly, there are still a number of people who are unaware that they’re already stressed out and need relief from it as soon as possible. Or rather, there are some who refuse to acknowledge that they badly need relief from stress.


If you’re unsure about this as well, let us give you some examples of symptoms that are commonly associated with stress:


Workaholics who make overtime work seem like a regular part of the job are usually bothered with insomnia and muscle aches because they’ve upset their biological clock and they have no time at all for badly needed exercise. If this describes you, then yes, you are already experiencing stress and you need relief from it right away.


Workaholics who have high paying but demanding and high pressure jobs always have to be on the go and prepared for any eventuality. Hence, they tend to have increased appetite or loss of due to lack of time for eating; an increased intake of sugar and caffeine to ensure that they can do the work of ten people; high cholesterol levels because they don’t have the time to ensure that they have a healthy diet and of course, feelings of anxiety when they’re worrying about the outcome of a job or project.


Does that describe you? If so, then yes, you do need stress relief right away.


Other typical symptoms of stress are impotence (unfortunately for the males), migraines and headaches, depression and a weakened immune system.


Now let’s just say that you’ve found out you do need relief from stress. What should you do next then?


Follow our two-step-guide so that you’ll gain relief from stress – dubbed as the #1 Health Problem of America — although obesity may share that notorious title as well – in no time at all.


First, you need to enrich, enhance and improve your time management skills. If Stephen Covey says it’s a must then who are we to argue? But seriously, with better time management, you’ll be able to give the proper amount of attention on yourself, on the type of food you eat and on the time you allow yourself to relax. Not only will it provide you stress relief, it will also take you out of the candidate list for heart attack, high blood pressure and diabetes, among other scary diseases.


Second and lastly, take proper medication. Herbal medicine is something worth considering because it contains all natural ingredients therefore decreasing the risk of experiencing any ill side effects. But always consult your doctor first before taking any medication!
