Excess stress can lead to problems emotionally (anxiety and depression), physically (sleep issues, muscle tension, headaches, psoriasis, gastro-intestinal and more) and behaviorally (alcohol and drug abuse, overeating, angry outbursts). Stress hormones hinder important cognitive functions. Relaxation therapy reduces the stress hormone and enhances our mental abilities, including focus and attention, problem solving, and decision-making.
While experiencing frequent stress has damaging effects on mind and body, relaxation therapy can improve health and support healing in the body. When the body is in a relaxed state, a person tends to breathe more deeply, which results in better and more regulated supply of oxygen delivery to the brain and body.

Stress affects body, mind, and emotions. Below are some useful tips in reducing stress.
