Stress - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

One aspect of human existence is stress
From the very childhood one encounters stress
From school, college, job and family, one faces stress
An integral part of worldly life is stress
Living in constant state of tension is stress.

Stressors are the events that provoke stress
Many different things cause stress
It is a good thing to experience enough stress
It isn't good to have stress-load which is harmful stress
Intense pressures which last long cause too much stress.

Anxiety or panic attacks are caused by stress
A feeling of being constantly hassled causes stress
Irritability and moodiness are often caused by stress
Allergic reactions, Eczema and Asthma are caused by stress
Sadness, Depression and Insomnia are all caused by stress.

The nervous system senses continued stress
It is activated when in persistent pressure and stress
The nervous system pumps out extra hormones of stress
The body's reserves are worn out and depleted due to stress
The immune system is weakened because of excessive stress.

From life one cannot completely eliminate stress
But one can control the way of response to stress
Yoga, Meditation and Pranayama can help one to reduce stress
One should not be allowed to be controlled by stress
In short, one should be always in control of stress.

    Stress depletes in all its forms, good advice here, when stress gets out of control its often very difficult to regain the upper hand. (Report) Reply
