Many people believe that the current generation is more stressed out than any before them. This seems odd to us because technology has grown dramatically in the past few decades and one would think that would make our lives much easier.
There are several factors that add to our stress levels.
- Less physical exercise
- Technology does so much for us, we do not have to work physically as much. We no longer have to grow our food, make our clothes, walk as much, and chop wood for heat.
- Pre-school is no longer an option. People know without it, their child will be behind before he even starts school.
- Grade point averages are watched closely, and a student is expected to go to college. This puts a lot of pressure on parents, teachers, and kids.
- We allow machines to dictate where we should be in our lives, sports, families, and career. We dare not disappoint the machine
Master your life - assume the power
Try to think of a time when people decided what to be done and took care of it. They got up when the sun did, worked on what was needed. Kids played in the fields after chores were done, and after a home cooked meal, people went to bed and slept. They slept without pills, and they actually rested when they slept.
Most people do not drink enough water. Dehydration is a major stress factor. At least 36% of people who die prematurely are dehydrated. If you cannot drink water, try adding lemon, lime, peaches, or berries. Feel free to eat the fruit when the water is gone. It will be nice and cold and will taste delicious. Berries are really great, as they add antioxidants to the diet.
Nature Always Wins
Nature is forever growing and forever changing. For every challenge we lay before it, we find a treatment. It is usually a treatment that people used hundreds of years ago. We walked away from natural remedies as we allowed our ego to keep up with technology. But we finally realized that nature provides just about everything we need. So, with that in mind, we will share with you 6 healthy drinks that will dissolve your stress like magic.
You can feel the stress slip away. The menthol is a natural relaxant. The smell begins the process. Once you sip the warm brew, it will act as a natural muscle relaxer.
