Most of us suffer from stress. And this endangers our health. Doctors say that stress i.e pressure we live with every day, makes us ill. It gives us headaches and stomachaches. Doctors have found that two modern killers-heart disease and cancer are due to stress. They are more common in people who find it difficult to relax in those who take it easy.
But perhaps the most important thing we can do is to learn how to relax. “Every time we sit down and we put our feet up, every time we relax, we take away some of the tension that causes stress ,”doctors claim.
