We are hit with stress everyday. Stressful news stories on crime,
war, and social struggles. Even stressful sounds from traffic, construction, and
crowds. Pile on a stressful job and a hectic lifestyle, and you have plenty of stress.
But just as stressful sights and sounds can induce stress, you can use soothing
sights and sounds to relieve stress.
Most of us are rarely in tranquil environments or even get a chance to notice the
beauty around us. Remember the old addage stop and smell the roses? The
true meaning is all about finding peace and tranquility in your life. Today's
lifestyles are so high-speed, you rarely get a chance to stop and do anything other
than mind-race about your 'To Do' list or worry about the things you didn't get
done. When was the last time you took a moment to gaze at the ocean and just
watch and listen to the waves hit the shore? It can be a wonderfully mesmerizing
and stress relieving experience. How about watching an exquisite sunset, or the
leaves on a tree blowing in the wind? These experiences are natural stress
relievers and can provide wonderful moments of tranquility.
When you allow yourself to soak in and appreciate these peaceful moments you
can experience instant stress relief and inner peace. Try it here. Try it now.
Concentrate, mediate or just daydream while watching the video clips in the upper
right hand corner of every page here on Tranquility is Yours until you begin to feel
relaxed. These videos are extremely helpful meditation tools for reducing stress
and can be very effective for quick stress relief. Just sit in a relaxing position,
focus on the imagery, breathe slowly in and out through your nose, and be wiling
to let your stress go.
When the nervous system is activated by the hypothalamus, involuntary functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, and body fluid regulation are affected. At the same time, the pituitary gland is stimulated, which in turn orders the release of several chemical hormones. The chemical cortisol provides fuel for the fight or flight response by increasing blood sugar so that there is energy for action. Aldosterone increases the blood pressure. Epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine are also produced, along with thyroxine. These substances in turn cause the following to occur:
1. Acceleration of heart rate
2. Dilation of coronary arteries
3. Dilation of bronchial tubes
4. Increase in force of heart contractions
5. Increase in rate of metabolism
6. Increase in anxiety
7. Increase in gastrointestinal motility
8. Increase in rate and depth of respiration
9. Decrease in feeling of tiredness
10. Decrease in Salvation
11. Dilation of pupils
The physical problems related to chronic stress include the lowering of the immune response, chronic muscle tension, and increased blood pressure. These problems can eventually lead to serious life-threatening illnesses such as heart attacks, kidney disease, and cancer. Holmes and Rahe and others have found that individuals who have undergone several stressful life events over a year's time have a much higher probability of developing these types of serious illness, within a few years of the events, than non-stressed individuals.

Dr. Blum and Dr. Waite advocated a non-specific "healthy diet" and non-specific regular exercise to accompany a regimen of taking SynaptoseTM, the nutrigenomic neuroadaptogen they developed based on Dr. Blum's many years of research to increase the endogenous production of Dopamine and reduce negative Reward Deficiency Syndrome behaviors. The scientific evidence they have thus far accumulated, they say, demonstrates that SynaptoseTM changes the plasticity of the brain synapses while balancing the endogenous neurotransmitters, positively affecting the Brain Reward Cascade.
