PUBLIC SERVICE -- Are you under stress?

Posted by Craig Westover | 8:34 AM |  

Stress is scientifically proven to contribute to a number of health problems for ordinary Americans. The danger is that stress is becoming so common that we have just assumed that the perpetual state of stress we live in is "normal." That does not mitigate the health hazards.

There is, however, a simple self-administered test to discover if you are living with residual stress fatigue (RSD). Click here to view a photo used in an extensive study of stress levels of patients at Our Lady of Subtle Joy Memorial Hospital.

Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress will find differences in the two dolphins. If there are many differences found between the dolphins, it means that the person is experiencing a significant amount of stress. Look at the photograph. If you find more than one or two differences you may want to take a vacation.
