Among hardest parts of living in modern world is stress and anxiety. With worries about work, environment, economy, natural disasters, terrorism, and general state of world, it seems that there is no end to number of things to worry about. Though we cannot control many of these things, they still weigh on our minds and cause us stress and anxiety. However, despite these concerns, we should try to avoid stress and anxiety.
Stress and anxiety are, at their hearts, mental problems. They are conditions in which mind is racing and constantly circling around certain concerns. The concerns may be seemingly mundane, but concerns keep recurring until they push out all other thoughts in brain and create their own towering mass of worry. And this tower is, in itself self-propagating simply because stress and anxiety tend to create themselves because stress and anxiety cause mind to condition itself to stress and anxiety.
There is research to suggest that mind gets used to stress and anxiety and, once it is conditioned, it will quickly return to stress and anxiety. In fact, there is some evidence that shows that stress conditioning may actually begin when we are too young to do anything about it. Children who face a great deal of stress will find their minds altered such that they will quickly return to a state of stress at slightest provocation. It is almost as though mind misses state of stress and anxiety and wants to return to it once it has found state.
Unfortunately, this creates serious problems not only for mind, but also body. Stress and anxiety put a great many demands on human body. It causes headaches, high blood pressure, ulcers, sleep problems, immune system deficiencies and can even swell joints, which can cause severe problems with conditions such as arthritis. As well, stress and anxiety can result in depression, memory problems, and even alcohol and drug abuse for those who suffer from stress and anxiety regularly. Thus, stress and anxiety are not merely problems of mind, but they are problems of mind that can cause problems in body. The mind does, in surprising ways, control body. And a mind that is overly taxed can lead to a body that is overly taxed.
