Stress is a Major Cause of Depression
One of the most common yet deadliest enemies we face in this modern, demanding world is STRESS. Stress is often ignored, even revered, yet it can really damage your health and your life. And stress can ultimately contribute to depression.
A leading type of stress is job stress or work-related stress. It is not unusual for workers to be grumpy on Monday and happy on Friday night.
Work-related stress is often the root-cause of ailments such as extreme fatigue, headaches, anxiety, nervousness, respiratory illnesses, muscle pain, back pain, ulcers, insomnia, high blood pressure, depression of course, and even obesity!
If you've been so preoccupied with your work and you haven't got the time to take a short break, you'll be more likely to pig out on dinner or midnight snacks. And of course, job insecurity can lead to depression too.
Other factors that contribute to stress are relationship problems, health problems, and money problems. Events like a fight with a friend or family member, not being able to pay your debts on time, supporting a family on a limited income, having an incurable disease, or simply feeling overwhelmed by life can all cause stress and depression.
Even positive events such as getting a job promotion or having more job responsibilities, getting married, or getting pregnant can also lead to increased stress, tension, and depression.
To avoid depression, or other ailments related to stress it is important to have an effective way of managing stress in your life. Exercise, proper diet, meditation, yoga, frequent breaks and enjoyable hobbies are all ways to relieve stress positively.
Our favorite approach is the "Release Technique". It's a method that has been proven effective in studies at Harvard Medical School and it's endorsed by numerous psychologists. Even without these endorsements, we've used and proven to ourselves that the Release Technique is the best way to deal with stress 'to relieve any unwanted emotional hangup.
