Positive view is key to beating stress
LONGER hours, shorter lunch breaks, overloaded in-boxes and constant phone calls – modern day living can be hard but the way we deal with stress can determine whether we thrive or collapse under pressure.
‘stress is natural and mild stress is even beneficial,” explains Edinburgh-based life coach Mark Lister. “It keeps you alert and on your toes when you need to be. It is the higher and more runaway levels of stress that cause problems.”
High stress levels make day-to-day living increasingly hard to cope with. This type of stress, if it isn”t managed, can badly affect your physical and emotional health. It is estimated more than 75 per cent of modern day illnesses are stress-induced.
