Solution to stress

I am reading a great book at the moment called "How to stop worrying and start living" by Dale Carnegie. It has made me realise that even if you eat the best food in the world and do all the necessary exercise to be fit and healthy, worry and stress can eat away at you and cause all kinds of damage to your health eg heart disease, diabetes, ulcers etc etc.

So, I am sure this is not news to everyone but some of the solutions so far posed in this book are about living in the present and only thinking about today and rest and relaxation and fun. So this really highlights the need to have fun every day whether that is at work or outside of work but it definitely needs to be a part of our everyday lives.

There is a great quote in the above book I mentioned which I think sums it all up very nicely. Religion could also be interpreted as spirituality in my opinion.

Relaxation and Recreation
The most relaxing and recreating forces are a
healthy religion, sleep, music and laughter.
Have faith in God - learn to sleep well-
Love good music - see the funny side of life-
And health and happiness will be yours.
(taken from "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" by Dale Carnegie, 1948)
