What is Stress?

Stress is evil because it is the number one cause of all the diseases and problems existing in our lives. We, humans, stress a lot. We emphasize on teeny-weeny stuff that exists around us.

What is the outcome?

The outcome of stress is that it puts much pressure on our pituitary gland, which is the “Master Gland.” This Gland is responsible for the production of hormones, which regulate all organs and the growth of our body. Stress can mal-function the regulator button of our body; the pituitary gland and that can create havoc in our biological cycle.

How can we regulate our stress?

Our thoughts cause stress. What we think, is the outcome of what we believe and that belief can make us act upon. This action can be injurious to our health especially when it’s a negative deed. This deed can, in turn, regulate our hormones. If the deed is negative, the hormones play havoc in the body, but if the act is a positive one, the hormones tend to play music in one’s body.

What about joy? What impact does joy have on our body?

Joy is like music to the ears. When a person is happy, he aspires to dream big, and that gives a kick to his mental being, which affects his immunity level, and he can defend his body from various bugs. Happiness is good for the mind and the body. No wonder, there are laughter camps, where adults are forced to laugh.
How can we control our thoughts and always be happy?

The Mantra of liberation is to be aware of our thoughts.

Awareness of our thoughts can liberate us from the pothole of sorrows.

Awareness!

This can be achieved if we devote some time to our mind. Give a few minutes each day to talk to your mind and listen to it.


How can we meditate?

How can that happen?

•Detach from the environment
•Keep your cell phone or computer or any distraction away from you. At least 5 feet away from you!
•Sit comfortably
•Close your eyes
•Listen to your mind
•It will wander
•Let it wander. After a few minutes, you will observe the mind has nowhere to go except be with you at the moment.
•Enjoy this moment
•Be in it. There are moments when a person falls asleep. Doing so is okay.
•When you open your eyes; you will be fresh. It will be as if you slept for a good 6-8 hours.
•That is the wonder of awareness.
This kind of activity if done on a daily basis will make you aware of your thoughts at all times. Whenever you feel or see anything that is against your wishes, you will start to talk within your self (This sure sounds crazy!) but this therapy makes you ponder over your stress, and you will come up with the solution. (I guarantee it!)


What are the benefits of Meditation?

Benefits of following the above regime besides reducing stress

  • Controls Anxiety--Stress and anxiety go hand in hand. If the mind is not restless; anxiety and stress are no more.
  • Promotes Emotional Health--With stress in control; secretion of cytokines is at minimum thus leading to a control in your emotions.
  • Enhances Self-Awareness--Mind is calm with stress in control. This leads to enhancement of self awareness of all the thoughts that come and go.
  • Lengthens Attention Span--A restful mind can go miles and yet not get tired. The capacity of productivity increases.
  • Can Generate Kindness--Empathy strikes when the restful mind is aware of one's surroundings. Gratitude keeps the individual grounded.

Conclusion on Meditation

My 2 cents

Humans are intelligent souls with loads of energy in them. It’s just that we are not aware of it and do not ponder within ourselves to dig and bring it out.
Stress is the number one bug around us and is eating us ALL. It is the cause of all the diseases, and we have the instincts to recognize it and curb it. We are the practitioners of our health. We can treat the disease before it invades our body.

Look within your self and meditate on your good health.

Namaste!

Though I am knowledgeable about most alternative therapies including yoga and meditation, I am not a regular. I mostly meditate when I feel restless. I should make it a point to meditate regularly. Awesome hub, voted up!

healthylife2 on August 29, 2012:

Meditation is something I would like to add to my daily routine but have not mastered yet. Great hub explaining the importance and technique to reduce stress. I may have to find guided meditation I can put on my IPOD. Voted up!

shruti sheshadri from Bangalore, India on August 29, 2012:

Excellent Hub and you made it so simple for us all to do it. Thanks for sharing this.

TycoonSam from Washington, MI on August 28, 2012:

Thank you Ruchira. I used to meditate regularly but I haven't in quite some time. Life just get's in the way. I will make it a point to start again because it did help me feel better rested.

Tammy from North Carolina on August 27, 2012:

Great suggestions. I need to seriously look into this. I have hyperactive energy and it would be great to get some balance. I didn't realize it was good for health too! Excellent!

KDuBarry03 on August 22, 2012:

I'm starting up yoga classes when the new semester starts! Yoga is an outstanding way to keep your health in check and keeping yourself calm. My school offers free yoga classes, so I'm definitely signing up!

Great hub and sharing, Ruchira!

Audrey Howitt from California on August 21, 2012:

Great hub!!

Cynthia Calhoun from Western NC on August 21, 2012:

I enjoy meditating and I've gotten away from it in recent months. You've just reminded me that I need to start back up in earnest! I know when I meditate, I almost become "psychic," too. It's incredible the transformation that happens! Thanks for sharing this!

Liz Rayen from California on August 21, 2012:

I love this hub Ruchira. Meditation is so important for good mental and physical health. Like Sunshine625, I like to walk and concentrate on the beautiful elements outdoors. Another way I love to meditate and relax is to sing. I love your tips and suggestions. Thumbs up and definitely shared! Lisa

Micheal from United Kingdom on August 08, 2012:

Stress can be deadly if left unchecked.

I used to do Yoga and meditate quite a lot.

I still do meditate and find it very refreshing.

The yoga I have given up on. Too strenuous.

Linda Bilyeu from Orlando, FL on August 07, 2012:

I like to walk and do yoga for to reduce stress OR laugh alot, a whole lot. I've tried meditation, but with my short attention span it didn't work well for me. Excellent hub!:)

Nithya Venkat from Dubai on August 07, 2012:

Meditation is the best way to beat stress, excellent pointers and information in your hub. Voted up.

thanks Rajan. Feels good to hear appreciation from a profound knowledgeable person, like you! Namaste!

hi melovy, I gotta check out your hubs. it's always a pleasure to read your perspective. thanks for stopping by!

Thanks Susan for dropping by. I am pretty sure, this will help you. Good luck, my friend!

Hi rebecca,

yes stress can be bad and I am glad you agree with the above. Thanks and good luck!

Dianna Mendez on August 06, 2012:

I find that meditation does make a difference in stress levels. Your statement that it is as good as having an eight hour sleep really proves the value of this practice. Great tips and so helpful.

Nell Rose from England on August 06, 2012:

This is such a good idea, I used to meditate or sit quietly at certain times of the day, but haven't done it for such a long time, thanks for the reminder, great hub and voted up and shared! nell

IntegrityYes on August 05, 2012:

That is another powerful one from,the great Ruchira. I voted up for sure.

Maria Giunta from Sydney, Australia on August 05, 2012:

I have meditated for many years as well as enjoyed yoga and have found both to be very beneficial for my health. I recommend this hub to anyone who needs to handle the stress in their lives better, thanks for the information Ruchira. Voted useful.

KDuBarry03 on August 05, 2012:

Taking a moment of ten to twenty minutes a day just to meditate and relax definitely benefits your health in the long run. You definitely give a great source of information here that I definitely must try out with my meditation :) When i sit back and relax, I usually play some relaxation music, soundscapes, or simply listen to romantic music (such as Chopin or Liszt) and let the music play for twenty minutes or so to relax. Closing your eyes and listening to music is a great way to enhance your meditation experience :)

dinkan53 from India on August 05, 2012:

Yes meditation can reduce the vulnerability to stress and increase our quality of life. If you do it regularly, every day, you will start feeling the benefits of meditation. Thanks for providing this information. Voted up.

Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on August 05, 2012:

Thanks for reminding us to de stress with meditation. Interesting information on how stress affects the body through the pituitary gland.

Susan Zutautas from Ontario, Canada on August 05, 2012:

I always try to push stuff out of my mind that is stressful and it doesn't work all that well. I'm going to start today with what you've suggested here.

Movie Master from United Kingdom on August 05, 2012:

Hi Ruchira, it's quite frightening what stress can do to our bodies - excellent suggestions Ruchira, thank you and voted up.

Best wishes lesley

Yvonne Spence from UK on August 05, 2012:

Ruchira, I so agree with you that awareness is the key to reducing stress. I've tried various types of meditation and though I don't currently do formal 'sit' meditation I do meditate several times throughout the day in a very similar way to your suggestion here. It helps to see that we are not our thoughts.

I notice one of my hubs has come up as a related one! As we both write on this topic often I guess that's not surprising.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on August 05, 2012:

You're so right Ruchira. Stress not only drains us out mentally but physically as well and meditation is the only remedy to relieve it.

You have explained how to go about doing this very well.

Voted up, useful and interesting.

Lovelovemeloveme from Cindee's Land on August 04, 2012:

Thanks for sharing.

I've tried meditating before in the past and usually fell asleep but I know someone who meditates 30 mins daily to help lower stress level and it does wonders for him.

Ruchira (author) from United States on August 04, 2012:

Hi Frank,

I agree it sure is hard to take time to do this but, gotta prioritize things in life when water goes above one's head...I hope you can spare some time in your day and try to make it a ritual :) wishing you luck, my friend!

Hi Sholland,

Thanks for your vote of confidence. yes, we gotta listen to our mind 'cause if we don't take time...it creates a havoc on our body. wishing you peace and joy, my friend!

Hi Urmilla,

I am happy to know that you have made this your ritual. I wish you peace and joy, my friend. My you find comfort from your pain via this channel.

Ruchira (author) from United States on August 04, 2012:

Hi Ruby,

Yes, I know you are an individual of poise and balance and that can come only when one pauses and reflects on one's thoughts. Wishing you lots more moments of peace and happiness, my friend!

Urmila from Rancho Cucamonga,CA, USA on August 04, 2012:

Hi Ruchira, very well said. Meditation is a great remedy for stress. I have so much stress in my life that without yoga and meditation, impossible to live. Thanks for sharing it. Voted up!

Susan Holland from Southwest Missouri on August 04, 2012:

Ruchira, you are so right about stress taking over our minds and bodies. I will try your technique of "listening to my mind." Thank you for sharing! :-)

Great Hub! Votes and shared!

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on August 04, 2012:

Ruch a very wll written hub.. but it's so hard to seperate yourself from regular routines.. but if I can I bet this would help a great deal.. thank you so much for sharing bless you

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on August 04, 2012:

Hello Ruchira, As you know, I am a BIG believer in meditation. It has brought me through many struggles.. All of your suggestions are good ones. Thank you for sharing...

Ruchira (author) from United States on August 04, 2012:

Hi Paula,

No wonder...I see this poise person in you :) wishing you many peaceful days ahead...best wishes always!!

Suzie from Carson City on August 04, 2012:

Ruchira.......I'm working on it......each day I make it a point to take some time in solitude........comfort, quiet and introspect. It's become more of a necessity than a treat.

I am so done with stress. What a waste of our precious time. Every moment we spend, worrying, working on "perceived" problems...is a moment of peace and joy we deny ourselves.

You have said so very much in this hub, Ruchira.....that we all need to heed. And meditation comes in many styles and colors!! Thank you ......UP++

Ruchira (author) from United States on August 03, 2012:

Hi Terry,

Well said indeed. I wish we had a spray for stress. Life would be soo much simpler...lol

Hi girishpuri,

Thank you for your vote of confidence. Always a pleasure to hear from you!

Ruchira (author) from United States on August 03, 2012:

Hi Bill,

You are a wise man and am sure the reason you don't stress is 'cause you have taken life well (as indicated in your hubs!) I can assure you this will make you climb one step higher towards nirvana...cheers, my friend!

Hi MarleneB,

I agree exercise is also a good way to de-stress 'cause it releases endorphins, which help regulate stress. My concern is to curb it before this stress starts to eat us..thus, awareness and for that we gotta think of what we "think". Good luck, my friend!

Hi Kelly,

You are awesome girl. Love ya!! My whole family is addicted to Angry birds and we all hussle to beat each other. To be aware of one's breath and one's thought is tremendous and I always wish you the best!!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on August 03, 2012:

I have never done this, but your suggestions are excellent Ruchira! I don't have much stress in my life but I can still see how this would be rewarding. Thank you for the information and have a great weekend.

Marlene Bertrand from USA on August 03, 2012:

Quite nice! Whenever I want to de-stress, I walk on my treadmill for 30 minutes. I don't do anything else. All I have to look at is a blank wall. It causes me to "think". I have never tried just sitting and thinking. I'll give it a try.

Kelly Umphenour from St. Louis, MO on August 03, 2012:

I have never really given meditation a good try but I play angry birds as a stress reliever every night before I go to bed! lol I think it basically kinda does the same thing - it perges junk and I am so focused on fun I am not thinking about anything but the game. I am very aware that I am doing it as a mental dump.

Very good advice and I need to try this again - I have such a darn hard time sitting still!

Terrye Toombs from Somewhere between Heaven and Hell without a road map. on August 03, 2012:

We need a spray for stress like we have a spray for roaches. Great job, Ruchira! :) I love it!

Girish puri from NCR , INDIA on August 03, 2012:

Very good suggestions and the fact remains majority of the body problem are directly or indirectly related to stress, and yes meditation or yoga is the right answer, voted up.
