Stress

Updated: Mar 3, 2023

The word and condition of this century.



Stress is most probably must be one of the most used words in today's life. Unfortunately, it has become much like the word 'love'. It is not necessarily carefully considered before it is used. One should try to think if your stress has not already developed into something much more serious such as diabetes, heart problems and severe depression - but you have never admitted to yourself that you are under severe stress. On the other hand – you may be causing some of your own stress – and need to seek professional help to help you rethink your life patterns.


What is the definition of stress?

Stress is different for different people - what you find stressful is the next person's idea of ​​fun.


For today's purpose, I would like to define it as the feeling that life overwhelms you in some way.

Therefore, no one should feel guilty about stress or any stress-related illness. Life is hard and complex, and since you're not the only one on the planet, you can add all the things people do to make the relatively simple life you're trying to live even more complicated.

It is more important to define what makes you stressed, and then work on it, before it takes an irreversible toll on your health.

Someone compared life and its issues to tending a garden – you have to regularly hoe through your thoughts and your lifestyle patterns or the weeds will take over and kill the beautiful garden that is you!

Another way to look at stress-related health issues is to see the issues you're suppressing as something knocking on your heart's door. It will beat until you pay attention. If you don't, the problem won't go away—a nagging emotional problem will eventually erupt as an illness if you ignore it long enough.


Many people don't want to talk about their life issues - although it's actually a good idea.

If you are, you may find aromatherapy a very 'private' treatment. Getting to know essential oils can do a lot for yourself. Aromatherapy has a host of oils that can help with stress.

I will list them here, and then send out a series of messages that go into more detail about the types of stress these oils are good for.
