Japanese Technique To Manage Stress in 10 minutes!!

Almost every one of us is dealing with some kind of stress in our daily lives. It may be due to excessive workload, examination pressure, illness, bad relationship, unhealthy lifestyle etc. If left untreated, stress can cause serious health problems like cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal problems, diabetes, emotional & behavioral changes. Excessive stress can also affects our immune system & makes our body more vulnerable to serious diseases.

Its not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.

~ Hans Selye
