How to fight stress?
If you are a kind of person who lives according to modern business standards, getting up early in the morning just to start rushing things all over the working day and don’t even stop thinking about work when at night you finally put your head on a pillow, then you might have a problem.
Being a business person himself with investing in real estate, doing estate planing, Walter Helwich is not far from the truth when says that nowadays, working more intensively with each new day, people are more prone to stress. Stress is a term that is commonly used to define our state, when we feel uncomfortable, but it leaves severe consequences, which are hardly recognizable. What is more important to point out is that stress is a quiet killer, which provokes a wide range of diseases such as degenerative diseases, cancer, diabetes etc. The weight gain, mental illness and hair loss are frequent indicators that you have too much stress in your life. But, every human being who wants to live a peaceful and quality mental, physical and emotional life should aim to live stress-free life.
When stressed, the body produces three hormones: adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol. All of them are produced by the adrenal glands and all trigger:
– Suppression of neurotransmitter activity
– Disintegration of the endocrine system
– Weak immunity
– Slow digestion
These hormones influence the body’s response to stress. Furthermore, Walter Helwich finds out that the stress causes mood swings, obsessive-compulsive disorders and bipolar hampered hormonal imbalance. It can also cause hair loss and fat accumulation, especially in the abdominal area. In addition, as the stress is becoming a common part of our life, so as the insulin resistance becoming higher, adds Mr. Helwich. When we are constantly in a state of ‘threat’ or ’emergency’, our body releases glucose in order to provide enough fuel to fight or escape. Unfortunately, this is not quite necessary, so the pancreas produces insulin surge to deal with the onslaught of glucose. Over time, this cycle depletes the pancreas and creates resistant-insulin cells.
When the glucose metabolism becomes ineffective, the rest of the organs such as brain, liver, adrenal glands, thyroid and bowel suffer because of the lack of fuel, and after follow some diseases including high blood pressure, arthritis, kidney failure, neurological problems and ulcers, adds Walter M Helwich.
However it is not hard to fight the stress, as long as you do it on a daily basis. Here are some tips Walter Helwich posted on his Twitter account:
Read a book – Even few minutes are enough to read poetry or to retrieve your favorite sonnets.
Go for a walk – Few minutes of walking burns all the negative energy you collect in the office and makes you feel mentally more capable.

Listen to your favorite song – beats of the right song can change their view of the world in less than 45 seconds.
