Top Reasons Why You Need a De - Stressor

Experts say that stress is a crucial and critical condition that should not be ignored. Different individuals react to stress and while others use recreational activities like sports or Yoga to help them relaxed and / or recharged others simply succumb to stress that they tend to get persisting and chronic stress and its associated manifestations like headaches.

Medical doctors say that stress can be associated to health conditions including but not limited to:

  • heart disease 
  • depression 
  • diabetes 
  • hair loss 
  • sexual dysfunction 
  • hyperthyroidism 
  • obesity 
  • obsessive-compulsive or anxiety disorder 
  • tooth and gum disease 
  • ulcers 
  • cancer 
  • alcoholism
  • drug addiction
  • allergies and skin problems
 So, while stress can be an ordinary fatigue or emotional condition, we can't simply underestimate its power and impact. Thus, we can only find ways to de - stress. Others try the following:

  • indoor and / or outdoor games
  • movie viewing 
  • book reading
  • sports betting  like soccer betting
  • short or long vacations
  • body massage
  • coffee breaks with friends or loved ones.
Regardless of the means how we remove our stress, what is more important is the fact that we do something to address it.

Running for Noble Advocacy

with my kid on our first night run for the benefit of the abused and abandoned children

We have been running our nth fun race and we can only be happier that we are helping in the advocacy supported by the organizers and at the same time, we are doing ways to keep us fit.

Since my husband was away, I had to run with my 9 - year old kid in spite of  the 3 km - distance we had to cover. Thus, the route was only traversed in a walk - run mode. My kid was quite exhausted and in spite of telling him to stop joining the race, he could not  be convinced the other way around.

There is another run scheduled on August 14 and I hope to run for 10km. I can only hope I can endure the race in spite of running alone since my husband can't stand the long running.

I can only be happier that I get to do what I love to do running and helping others.
