Cave-Man Wisdom on Stress-Management
Why live with stress? I can make it go away for you. Just give me your support, your money, your vote, and I will make it all good.
Do we have a deal?
Probably not. As nice as it is to relieve stress, you have reason to be suspicious.
The unfortunate truth is that nothing can banish stress. Yourbrain needs it to function. Like a car needs an accelerator and a brake, your brain needs one system to push you toward things that are good for you, and another system to pull you back from things that are bad for you. Without your unhappy chemicals, you would seek happy chemicals without due regard for the risks. Unhappy chemicals promote survival as much as happy chemicals.
