The Holy Grail of Happiness- Tips on Reducing Stress and Anxiety

Posted on February 7, 2011



Stress is no laughing matter. When stress becomes chronic, lasting for long periods of time without any moments of rest or relaxation, serious physical or psychological problems can result.

According to Dr. Jim Manganiello, ” When your body is under stress, your cells actually change shape and become unhealthy. In turn, the delicate tissues in your body become more susceptible to free radical damage—the process that causes aging. It’s a dangerous cycle that leaves you vulnerable to countless health problems. Living with constant stress will literally wear your body out. Stress hormones will weaken its ability to fight or prevent serious diseases—including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. Not to mention making you more prone to colds, infections and other distressing illnesses.”

Dr. Jim Manganiello is an award-winning clinical health psychologist, mindbody scientist, teacher and author. He’s a longtime innovator in the areas of stress, well-being, personal growth and “inner fitness”.
