If you've read some of my previous blogposts, you know that stress is not a new topic for me. I have talked about the importance of limiting stress. This is necessary for everyone-children, parents, young adults, adults. This article talks about one of the reasons that regulating your stress levels and those of your children is so important. If you are a nerd like me, you will appreciate this article and the scientific explanation for why stress is so damaging. It is not just about feeling overwhelmed and having the emotional center of your brain take over, leaving the logical part of your brain unable to function. There is evidence that stress actually alters your DNA-and not in a good way. What I like best about this article is that it offers potential solutions. Chronic stress does not have to be a part of one's life-child or adult. There are ways to deal with it. If you find that you are trying to manage your stress and need some help, consider contacting a psychologist. They can offer many concrete solutions and feedback along the way. Do not suffer through overwhelming stress. There is help available-you just have to access it.
