Suffering is disease and contentment is good health. This only points out the profound connection between our body and mind. Health is a biological equilibrium that exists within our bodies. A person with a disturbed mind and soul cannot possess a healthy body. Health is a reflection of physical, mental, spiritual, and economic well-being. Stress in today’s society is omnipresent. It is the manner in which a person reacts to stress that makes all the difference to health. Those who handle stress in a detached manner are the ones who are least affected by it.

When a person is exposed to stress over a period of time, he can develop high blood pressure, stomach ulcers, cancer, immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, depression etc.
