Can You Reduce Stress by Doing More of What You Love?

Do you feel there are not enough hours in the day to take care of all of your responsibilities?  Pressure to complete tasks in a given time frame is a major contributor to stress.  April is National Stress Awareness Month.  Here at Therapeutic Effect Plus, our goal is to help you live a life in which you can physically, mentally and emotionally do all the things you love to do.  And doing what you love relieves undue pressure!

Joe Robinson, a blogger for the Huffington Post and stress expert wrote in Three-Quarters of Your Doctor Bills Are Because of This, “Stress is a factor in five out of the six leading causes of death — heart disease, cancer, stroke, lower respiratory disease, and accidents. An estimated 75percent to 90 percent of all doctor visits are for stress-related issues.”  Those are sobering statistics.  But what if something you enjoy is actually great for you and can help you live longer?  Sorry, eating your favorite, fatty comfort food is still not great for your health, but getting a massage is!
