Ask yourself this very important question? Is whatever you are chronically stressed about really worth dying from?
Chances are if you are reading this; you or someone that you know is probably chronically stressed. There life starts off early in the morning and doesn't slow down until they get home. They get a rush from staying busy and the more tasks that they can accomplish the better. This is very typical for someone who is chronically stressed and is very bad for their health.
The frequent rush that people get is from an increase in adrenalin. It causes the body to be in a constant fight or flight which is great if you are being chased by a tiger. Otherwise it is just overstimulating your body and is a problem when it happens on a daily basis.
