High Blood Pressure Reduction Through Personal Process Management

High Blood Pressure Reduction Through Personal Process Management

Hi! If you've often felt stressed out of your mind because work and other life pressures are getting out of hand, you will understand the common feeling among many people of internal frustration rising out of control and then erupting as a whole host of ailments.

Why that happens is easy to understand - we're holistic beings. This means our worst mental frustrations often manifest themselves as physical ailments such as aggravated hypertension. This isn't empty psychobabble, but rather a finding that's been long substantiated by the medical fraternity. For instance, consider this interesting piece I came across today:

Stress Education Center - Article on stress related high blood pressure,panic,anxiety,stress,chronic pain,stress reduction: "High Blood Pressure - Hypertension
Article by L. John Mason, Ph.D.

Hypertension is not just a disease of aging. Young men and women can suffer from its damaging, sometimes killing, effects. Please do not take this condition lightly. Get it treated as soon as possible before it creates lasting damage and adversely effects your life as you do age.

High blood pressure can be a very dangerous, and often untreated, symptom of stress. In fact, perhaps 70% of all high blood pressure problems are related to emotional responses to difficult or dangerous situations. When this response becomes habituated by your body, the prolonged high blood pressure can lead to long term permanent physical damage such as hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), heart, strokes, liver, or kidney damage. These can be very serious and very scary, but many people do not know they have high blood pressure or do not treat this potential killer disease. "

What he describes is precisely what I've gone through myself. It's a classic case of 'been there, felt that'! Because I've been thinking about this sad phenomenon, I decided to put down my own thoughts on 'paper'. The result is a brief, exploratory article that examines the possibility of High Blood Pressure Reduction Through Personal Process Management. The approach I take is derived from my personal experiences and numerous client encounters that suggest the two keys to making things permanently better is accurately understanding and effectively applying core goal-setting skills.

If you read my article entitled High Blood Pressure Reduction Via Goal-Setting and Personal Process Management, please let me know what you think and what your own experiences have been in this area. I'm interested to find out and I'm sure you're own perspective is one that will benefit other readers of The Cool Time and Money Blog.

Thanks and take care.
