Stress is a problem that exploded during the 20th century and which covers a multitude of different symptoms. It is normally the result of too much pressure being applied to an individual. There is no such thing as “good” stress; rather, people’s lives are enriched by being put under certain levels of pressure, which enables them to move out of their comfort zones, and grow as people. Without pressure, everyone’s lives would simply roll along in endless boredom and more likely than not, also be a health risk, perhaps leading to depression. When the pressure gets too much, or the recipient feels they have been cornered – figuratively speaking – the pressure then becomes stress. So if you are a manager, this is the time to take that foot off the gas pedal, and give the other person a way out of the situation, in order not to impact their health and productivity, but also not to get landed with a lawsuit.
Martial arts has been the basic foundation to for millions of people over the years. This success has also been repeated again and again over thousands of years. The martial arts (MA) or martial sciences (MS) as some people like to call them have assisted both young and old. It has helped males and females from all walks of life all over the world. Yet it is not used nearly as much as it should be here in the United States. The MA are far more than kicks and punches. The MA are not about cage matches or winning a trophy. Martial arts it is not about rank or position it is about personal development and basic self development. This is a development that reaches out on several levels, mental, physical, and spiritual. Please understand that when I say spiritual I am not talking about spiritual as in Catholic, Muslim, and Jewish etc. The MA is one thing that will work with most religions and will not interfere with any believe. When I am talking about spiritual I am referring to a persons inner spirit. The martial art has a way of centering people it has a way of helping those who are open to the martial arts a balance and positive base.
Similarly, martial arts can also have an impressive impact on an individual’s mental health. Some research has shown that consistent training can lead to changes in brain chemistry which ultimately translates to positive change in emotional, behavioural, and physiological states. One of the most common benefits of training with respect to mental health is mood elevation. As a practitioner begins to master new techniques and climb the belt ranking system, feelings of self confidence and esteem are heightened or begin to emerge. Moreover, mood elevation and heightened energy levels provide with improved resistance to depression, anxiety, and even physical illnesses. Through martial arts, you may learn better coping skills as you develop better focus and self discipline.
