"I need to relax," or "I will feel better in the morning," or "It's no big deal I am working these long hours, I am 37 years old & still young.

"But stress is not "just" some benign complaint. Instead, it's a powerful risk factor for disease, notes a recent article in The Journal of the American Medical Association. The article focuses on evidence showing that stress is linked to an increased risk for heart attacks, depression, cancer and the progression of H.I.V. and AIDS.

Another recent article in the JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association noted that workplace stress may be as bad for your heart as smoking and high cholesterol. Marital strife poses to be an equally important risk to your heart health, the Archives of Internal Medicine also reported recently.

Ashwin I have severe pain in my arms it began as a dull pain in my palms and now its radiating all over my arms. I have gone through a complete medical check up, I was a newly detected diabetic but my arm or hand pain was cleared and was advised observation and physiotherapy. I was told that both my diabetes and hand pain is due to stress. can it be possible

Geetanjali Kelkar Dear Ashwin

Yes, its true that stress is one of the cause for diabetes and even pain. Increased stress releases hormones cortisol, growth hormone and norepinephrine. Rise in the levels of these hormones affects the metabolic system and can cause severe depression, body aches, hypertension and diabetes if you are pre-disposed to these ailments. Its important for every individual to learn to beat stress through physical activity, meditation, music therapy and keep these ailments at bay

Geetanjali Low to moderately intense exercise is known to alleviate anxiety and stress. Exercise releases endorphins that help in relieving stress. A study from University of Missouri suggests that high intensity exercise is the best way to reduce anxiety and stress that lead to heart disease. However, people who already have heart disease should exercise at low to moderate intensity

Vijayalakshmi Iyengar Smokers should stop deluding themselves that smoking helps them deal with stress, as a new study has found that after a person quits smoking his/her chronic stress levels go down .
Results from a study of 469 smokers who tried to quit after being hospitalised for heart disease, showed that those who abstained for a year showed a reduction in their perceived stress levels as against those who went back to smoking. To quote lead researcher Dr Peter Hajeck at London School of Medicine and Dentistry, UK `Smokers often see cigarettes as a tool to manage stress and ex smokers sometimes return to smoking in the belief that this will help them cope with a stressful life event. In fact smoking may create long term stress’.

Ravi Mohan, Hey! Does the intesity of exercise also affect stress reduction - what I am asking is if I do moderate exercise (jogging) do I reduce my stress quicker than if I do low impact (walking slowly) exercise.
I usually take 40 minute waling around my neighburhood park.
