As risks of unemployment increase, couples with rocketing price hikes in fuel and food is increasing stress on every individual in the UK. Average debt per individual has increased from £32,750 to £47,000 within 4 months according to an IVA specialist site.
Panic attacks, migraines, insomnia, anxiety and increase in alcohol and substance abuse are being reported across voluntary organisation and debt management companies as a result of the unbearable financial stress people are under.
Unchecked stress can lead to very dangerous illness such as heart diseases, cancers, skin rashes, depression, panic attacks, strokes, hair loss and high blood pressure to mention but a few. In addition, studies have shown parents who are stressed pass on their stresses to their children, leading to comfort eating and obesity, as well as all the complication this would bring about a child.
While many of us cannot do much to elevate the mounting financial stresses upon us, we can do something about the stress itself. It is essential in the present situation for individual to learn these simple non-toxic, portable techniques and if possible to also teach their children.
Stress Management through mindfulness or Symran (sound meditation) has been conclusively shown to address a range of physical illness, depression, anxiety, panic attacks and high blood pressure. In addition, meditation and relaxation will enable individuals to be able to clear their minds of worry and anxiety, thereby giving people a change to make decisions with a clear head, as opposed to having to make decisions under the pressure of your worries.
