tendency to resort to smoking, to go on food binges or simply withdrawing from
society by observing a sedentary lifestyle.

There is no doubt that stress-related diseases have increased and affected the
current trend of life. All the diseases mentioned in the years that passed were caused
or influenced by stress either by diet or lifestyle habits.

Stress is the actual wear and tear of the body caused by anxiety in this complex and
competitive society. It isn't always an indication of poor health. In some cases
athletes are purposely using stress in their training as a means of enhancing the level
of performance to avoid exhaustion during athletic events. Therefore, stress can be
planned through exercise to improve the handling of physical and emotional stress.

During unexpected moments; when somebody wants to harm you without warning,
the body's autonomic nervous system is put into a fight-or-flight response. Here, the
cause of stress is clearly defined as the attacker.

Due to this incident several body changes will take place, as follows:

1. Your digestive processes will cease and the blood will be redirected to the muscles
to fight or run and to the brain for quick action.

2. There will be quick breathing to put more oxygen in the lungs for faster blood
transfer in order to give more energy to the muscles and brain.

3. Faster pulse rate will be experienced thereby raising the blood pressure.

4. Instant sweating starts to dispatch the heat brought by the augmented blood flow
and the energy to be released.

5. Muscles will feel tense for any eventualities.

6. Blood clotting chemicals will be activated in case of injury; and,

7. Blood sugar, blood and fat are released for the needed energy, to fight or run.

These are only examples on how our body will handle or react to stress and these
are also the cases when it is already encompassing an individual.

To stop this from happening, one should learn to deal with stress to prevent
high blood pressure by:

1. Maintaining to be fit through exercise regimen in order for the body to handle
stress.

2. Mental training in preparation for any worst eventualities and proper decision
making.

3. Stay away from alcoholic beverages, cigarette smoking, using drugs or indulging in
food as escape medium; they will only add up to the creation of another stress.

If one is not properly fit to handle stress, this will only lead to high blood pressure and
other illnesses, Learning to deal with stress to prevent high blood pressure can be
done naturally by mental conditioning and fitness maintenance.

During the start of the century in
1900, the most common causes of
death were mostly communicable
diseases which later on were
addressed and cured by medical
science. The elimination of these
diseases in our midst somehow
doubled the life expectancy of
humanity. What can be quite
interesting is that as the century
came to a close, stress became an
influential factor in the present day's
top diseases.
