Stress is the body’s heightened reaction to a change that requires physical and mental adjustments. It is a form of pressure (the need for extra ability) in the face of a perceived danger or special need. Some stress is a normal part of life and essential for well being. The stress of an exam can help a person be extra alert and do his/her best (often called good stress). The mind recognizes danger or perceives a special need and signals the body for help. The mind (our thoughts and emotions) is primarily responsible for creating stress levels. Our stress levels in turn strongly impact our long-term health. So the thoughts and emotions we have today affect how we feel physically in the future. That is why it is reported that 75-90% of doctor visits are stress related. Thankfully, God’s Word teaches how to reduce stress in order to have a healthy mind and body, which helps us enjoy life and serve Him better.
