Since we are babies, we are exposed to many circumstances and experiences that cause stress, anxiety and feelings of despair and anger. Indeed, these emotions are neither good nor bad, they are only reactions we have when certain circumstances occur and we try to adapt most favorably. However, when we feel stress or anxiety, the body generates much resistance, the muscles tighten, breathing becomes ragged, the heart pumps faster and the nervous system becomes irritated and suffers wear. In addition, the body's vital energy cannot circulate properly, causing pooling in certain areas of the body and can later cause all sorts of conditions.

There are many circumstances that can cause stress, and when we are unaware of what causes stress and give you a solution that leads to calm, then we run into evasive attitude, trying to suppress that kind of inner tension with superficial pleasures currently varnished with artificial calm, but that ultimately only create more loneliness, stress and anxiety, which does not allow us to enjoy life more fully and satisfactory but we are moving away from it, we become survivors, we are not really living and enjoying.
